My Top 3 Priorities

  • Jobs/economic growth-the state is strangling small businesses in red tape and over regulation
  • Water and Public infrastructure - we must put more emphasis on people’s need for water and fix our crumbling roads, highways and schools
  • Public safety - AB109 and Prop 47 are failures. We need to keep criminals behind bars and off our streets.
