Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am running for re-election to San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee representing District 5,  because I believe we should always remember that we are here to DO THE PEOPLE'S BUSINESS...

I will always work to bring people together with different ideas to promote creative thinking, discussion, compromise, and a long-range vision. This is how we come to the best and most equitable decisions.

I believe that openly discussing controversial issues may make some people uncomfortable, but I see it as a sign of a healthy democracy.

From Daly City to San Bruno and Broadmoor to Brisbane and Colma to South San Francisco, I truly believe we are all "neighbors" in North San Mateo County and we need to stand up for each other. I believe in a future that preserves our cultural and economic diversity, our neighborhood quality of life, our civil liberties, and promotes respect and social justice for all members of our community.

You will always know who I am and what I stand for. I will never forget that I represent you, the people of North San Mateo County.
