Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

San Gabriel is beautiful for a variety of reasons, one being the unique character of the community. Due to the rapidly changing economic landscape of Southern California, San Gabriel must accommodate to growth and development while also maintaining its roots. Economic development is a top priority for San Gabriel City Council as prosperous business owners, quality jobs, and an increased tax base all help to create a thriving city. With increased economic vitality, the City of San Gabriel may continue to provide a high quality of life for workers, business owners, property owners and residents. Tony aims to support economic development and re-development in the City of San Gabriel in ways that complement the quality of life for all who live, work, shop and play in San Gabriel.

 

Every city requires frequent maintenance to ensure a healthy, clean, and prosperous environment. However, the City of San Gabriel is currently falling short. Potholes, functionless streetlights, and graffiti plague our city and detract from the beauty of the town. While reporting systems have been implemented, follow through on the complaints of citizens has been less than frequent. In addition, the city has not allocated enough money to fixing our aging infrastructure and generally beautifying the city. Tony plans to address our aging infrastructure by fixing more of our streets and sidewalks and ensuring that the proper funds are being siphoned to these projects, not just on main streets, but in our residential neighborhoods as well.

Lastly, he would like to enhance the main corridors with well-maintained landscaping.
