My Top 3 Priorities

  • Integrity. San Diego, and its elected officials, can trust my non-biased word.
  • Community outreach. Making sure Deputy City Attorneys are in contact with neighborhoods, and stay in contact with them.
  • Work with all city officials, not against them, for solutions to homelessness, privacy concerns, short term vacation rentals, and deteriorating infrastructure.
