My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public safety - more police on the streets and reinvigorated community policing
  • Managing sensible growth - we need new schools, new hospitals, traffic/transportation plans, more fire and police resources
  • Fiscal responsibility - selective hiring freeze, performance evaluation and competitive bidding for all city contracts

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Let us have the strength to be courageous in the face of fear, to choose the harder right over the easier wrong, to be true to ourselves and the principles we have chosen to uphold. Let us protect the weak, shield the poor, and always remember to be gracious with our bounty; for only in doing so can we collectively contribute to the greater common good for our families, our city, and our country.
