My Top 3 Priorities

  • At the end of 2019, the city had a deficit of 7MM, my priority will be to bring back Fiscal Accountability with a balanced budget..
  • FBI data indicates that 1 in 56 people in Morgan Hill will be affected by either property crime or a violent crime, how did our once peaceful town get to that statistic. I will promise to ensure a safe neighborhood and support excellence in education
  • I will fight to bring in high tech companies while fighting to prevent massive distribution centers that bring in low wage jobs. I will foster strong economic opportunities that brings in high paying jobs.

Biography

As a previously elected Official at MHUSD (2014-2018), I learned that good Governance is essential to making intelligent decisions. I’m a graduate of Masters in Governance from CSBA with training in Finance, Collective Bargaining and Risk Management to name a few. Bold Leadership is desperately needed to address city issues like stopping Large Distribution Centers like Trammell Crow which adds to our already congested streets and ultimately erodes the essence of our once peaceful community. I am a graduate of Leadership Morgan Hill (2003/2004), I was on the 4th of July (Largest Parade in northern California) for 10 years. I have lived in Morgan Hill for the past 35 years and I know how to listen to community members especially when it comes to their needs. I also graduated from the CPA (citizens police academy) given by the MHPD, a 4 month program. Being educated in all aspects of our city is vital to making the right decisions for our citizens. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe in fiscal responsibility and value that the money spent in government is taxpayer money so I will be accountable to the taxpayer and I will represent the taxpayer. I believe in ensuring our town is a safe community and that all essential services are fully funded to secure our safety. Data like 1 in 56 people will be a victim of a violent crime or property crime is simply not acceptable (FBI Data) I believe in responsible growth but one that takes into account our sustainability in maintaining our crumbling roards plus providing decent housing and clean air. 

Community members tell me all the time that they are extremely unhappy with the direction that the city is going, especially in housing. We must tackle these disappointing issues by having the courage to challenge the status quo and ask the right questions. Our once peaceful town is being threatened by haphazard out of control building!

WE THE PEOPLE, have to take back our city by having elected officials who have experience and knowledge on all aspects of the city, not just special projects. Encouraging community input is vital to good government. I will work hard to ensure the voter has a voice at the city level. 

Position Papers

Morgan Hill issues and concerns

Summary

The issues surrounding this election in Morgan Hill has never been more important to our quality of life in our town. This will be a defining moment in history going forward. 

As a previously elected Official at MHUSD, I have learned that good Governance is essential to making intelligent decisions. I bring important relevant expertise with a Masters in Governance from CSBA and specific training in Finance, Collective Bargaining, Community Involvement, Risk Management and HR. 

 

Bold Leadership is desperately needed to address city issues like stopping large distribution CENTERS like Trammell Crow that only add to our already congested streets.

 

     Community members tell me all the time that they are extremely unhappy with the direction that the city is going, especially in housing. We must tackle these disappointing issues by having the courage to challenge the status quo and ask the right questions. Our once peaceful town is being threatened by haphazard out of control building!

 

Our city is running in a deficit spending and has been before COVID 19 to the tune of 7MM at the end of 2019. I will work hard to bring our city back into a sound financial position, I have that experience.

 

Keeping our city safe is job one! Yet we can’t even build a desperately needed Fire Station on the northeast section of Morgan Hill to keep our citizens safe. FBI data says that in Moragn Hill, 1 out of 56 people will experience either a property crime or a violent crime, I know, I was one of those statistics. We must do better.

 

I have lived here for 35 years and my priority will be listening to our community. I will use all of my life’s experiences, including my 35 years in high tech, to refocus the future so ‘we the people’ have a say about our town.

Here is my promise to you

·       I WILL REPRESENT ALL OF DISTRICT A; NOT JUST A SMALL SELECT PORTION

·       I WON’T LET PROJECTS LIKE TRAMMELL CROW MASSIVE DISTRIBUTION CENTER GET PASSED WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE VOTERS

·       I WON’T VOTE FOR MASSIVE BOND MEASUERS THAT TAKE 30 YEARS TO PAY BACK

·       PEOPLE FEEL THERE’S NO TRANSPARENCEY WITH OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS, NO ONE LISTENS. WELL I WILL BE YOUR VOICE AT CITY HALL AND I WILL LISTEN TO YOU

Promises made, Promises kept! Look at my previous record as an elected official.
