My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public safety is a balance and it has shifted too far to where we do not protect our most vulnerable. FBI data suggests it is counterproductive to racial equity for elected officials to give the appearance of disparaging law enforcement agencies.
  • Los Angeles housing policy should follow research and data, but policy makers should be skeptical when presented with cheaply-obtained research results, paid for by agenda-driven uber-charities, with recommendations that contradict our intuition.
  • To nurture students of all ethnicities and races, our future, we should generously fund schools. But our hard-earned tax dollars only benefit the students when combined with budgetary accountability we must demand of our education professionals.
