Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

As a candidate for the office of Mayor in the city of Fresno, CA. My main objective is Infrastucture. The re-building of our Maintenance Departments ex: streets, lighting, maintenance. Another area of importance is Police and Fire Departments, and make sure that these very important services are equipped with the Manpower/Equipment needed to meet the needs of our growing city.(500,000+) Poverty and Blight and Code Enforcement will be top subjects also. As for employment, my roll as a Mayor is to promote job growth within the city, look for companies and investors and have them move or establish their business's in Fresno. Greenspace and Education for our youth are also top priorities. Homelessness will be controlled in Fresno, as Mayor I'll address and modify the old method of helping the homeless with better and intelligent use of all monies directed towards homelessness. Transparency will not be a problem, community involvement from all sections of Fresno will be heard from and the citizen's of Fresno will know that their voices will not fall on deaf ears. Accountability will be required from all of Fresno's government leadership and all departments. As Mayor of Fresno, I'll bring Diligence, Prudence and Dedication to the highest office in Fresno.
