My Top 3 Priorities

  • Increase safety coverage of District 5. While the city has 1.3 officers per 1000 residents, District 5 has approximately 1 officer for every 7,500 residents and its reflected in police response times and increasing of property crimes.
  • Infrastructure upgrade and maintenance NOW, not in 25 years. Stop wasting money painting streets and repave them correctly, now, and then constantly maintain them not just during election years.
  • Lower some of the water base fees that punish low water users, fixed income and low income users and seniors, and tie water AND sewer fees to water consumption.

Who supports this candidate?

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

There are 4 aspects of community management that separate the great from the good and the bad.

1) Safety, adequate police and fire (both lacking in SD District 5).

2) Good Schools (not overcrowded like many in D5)

3) Infrastructure (currently in disrepair citywide)

4) Environment ( affected by overbuilding, planned gas pipelines, disappearing park spaces).

For those reasons I am running, because I have seen the quality of all 4 decline under the last 3 city council members with no improvement in sight.
