My Top 3 Priorities

  • The ongoing drought has shown the importance of water security for all. We need to conserve our critical water resources and diversify our supply.
  • We have seen the horrific impact of catastrophic wildfires. We need to implement our community wildfire plan--and I support Measure L as a source of some of the funds we need for the decades-long project.
  • The balance of jobs and affordable housing is out of whack. The County needs to work with the cities to build more housing of all sorts, especially workforce housing.
