When Bosses are Bullies

When Bosses are Bullies – Article by David Lieberman
Policymakers have enjoyed a free pass in discussions over what to do in response to the sexual harassment allegations taking down Hollywood producers, news media titans and actors. Because the worst of the transgressions already are illegal, lawmakers seem satisfied to call for culprits to be fired or to step down and for corporate leaders to promise that they’ll crack down on offenders more quickly in the future.

Tracey van Putten, Candidate for Honorary Mayor of Rancho Bernardo

July 18, 2017 in Mortgage - Loan Officer, News

I am Tracey van Putten, candidate for Honorary Mayor of Rancho Bernardo.

As a Loan Officer with Skyline Home Loans in Rancho Bernardo, I have dedicated my career to helping my clients realize their dreams of homeownership here in our local community.

A little bit about myself-

I am running for Honorary Mayor because I know it is a fantastic way to give back to this amazing community that has provided such a rich and wonderful experience for my family of four children – all of whom graduated from the Poway Unified School District.

The Rancho Bernardo Business Association has been integral in my life over the past few years. I have made great connections with so many great people who I am proud to have as friends and business associates. I now serve on the Board of Directors for the RBBA and am the Membership Chair. I have chosen to Run for Honorary Mayor to raise awareness about this amazing organization and help the RBBA grow to be even a greater benefit to Rancho Bernardo and the surrounding communities.

I am also a long-time member of the Church at Rancho Bernardo, and an active member of the Rancho Bernardo Sunrise Rotary where I serve on the Board as Co-Chair of the Fundraising Committee which alongside Urge Gastropub, Co-Sponsors a hugely popular annual event each October at Webb Lake Park called “Rancho BEERnardo” raising money for 20+ local charitable organizations.

As a lender, I am active with the local Real Estate Boards and am also a member of North County Referrals, a Rancho Bernardo networking group that meets every Friday morning.  I formerly served as Treasurer for the Rancho Bernardo Toastmasters – a great group for honing your public speaking skills!

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, biking and travelling, especially to visit with friends and family all over the US, and occasionally to Mexico – either to help build a home with my Rotarian friends for a deserving family just South of the Border, or to Puerto Vallarta where my favorite Adventures are ziplining thru the jungle, rappelling down a waterfall or just paddle boarding in a remote cove.

To raise funds for the RBBA, our campaign will be holding a fabulous fiesta on July 26th, from 5:30 – 8:00 pm, with great food and beverages, music, silent and live auctions and more. Tickets for this AND for our Opportunity Drawing for an all-inclusive week-long getaway for two with airfare at an Exclusive Four Diamond Resort in Puerto Vallarta can be obtained at: or by contacting me directly at:
