As a longtime volunteer for the City of La Mesa and a "greeter" at many City Council meetings over the years, Helen knew more about the odd eccentricities of the various city councilmembers than anyone. I could always count on her to level with me about things she noticed. I felt honored that she would come to me with advice and admonitions about things we could do better, process-wise.

A bit of advice she gave me, I still use with my elected board members at the Grossmont Healthcare District...

When it's late in the meeting and you prefer to skip the staff report, because you already know what's in it, and you're ready to vote -- that doesn't mean the public knows the background. Don't shortchange the info provided to the public simply because you want to move things along. 

That was sound advice from someone who championed her city and gave so much to it for so many years. 

I loved Helen's quiet spirit. I was blessed to know her.
