My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public Safety is key with the growth that's coming into our community.
  • Education must be a priority. Students must be able to access local and outstanding quality within our city limits.
  • Quality of Life must be maintained for our Seniors, Youth, and Families. Our businesses and resources need to reflect this.



Chair of Park and Recreation Department, City of Lathrop — Appointed position (2019–current)


I am a generational lifetime resident of our great city. As a Councilwoman, my job will be to serve the people who put me in my seat. Public Safety and Quality of Life are some of the staples in my campaign. Public Safety is key within any community and no corners can be cut in making sure our residents are safe and the agencies protecting them have the resources needed to do their job.  With our steady growth, we need to find solutions on things like public safety, education and schools, and the development of family activities within our city.  These are things that will make the quality of life better for current Lathropians and those to come.  Transparency is key, and I will use my seat to make sure that our citizens are always fully aware of what’s going on, while asking the hard questions.  Building a bridge between communities is what I plan to continue doing whether on Council or in my current role as Chair of the Park and Recreation Commission.  If elected I will be not taking directives but instead be using the facts with the voices of the “People” when making decisions.  I will honored to earn your vote this November 3rd.  Vote Minnie
