My Top 3 Priorities

  • I’ll address the devastating effects of climate change: severe drought by developing programs to recycle/reclaim water for use in irrigation, farming and landscaping; reducing the traffic
  • I’ll tackle climate-induced flooding and sea-level rise & protect our open spaces, beaches, and forests for our future generations to enjoy. I’ll fund year-round investment in wildfire prevention & improve our coastal protections
  • End homelessness -- by expanding mental health, substance abuse, job training, and housing services; Ensure our future generations can stay in San Mateo County and our teachers, firefighters, and essential workers can live near where they work
