I have lived in Redlands since 1995 and consider this my home town. I have worked with many citizen driven organization that worked to protect the cultural heritage of our community. I have also been a volunteer park ranger. I am committed to ensuring that our city government serves and address the needs of our entire city. We need to fix our infrastructure. We need to develop true sustainability policies that we can share with our citizens. We need to prevent our sales tax dollars from leaving our city and expand our sales tax base. We need to make it easy to start, grow, or expand a business in our community by providing smart tax incentives for businesses.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe that all politics is local. I also believe that government should not be run like business. Local governments do not exist to make profits; However, they do exist to solve the urgent needs throughout our community.We currently have enough revenue to address our most pressing needs citywide. However, our current council lacks the will to make greater progress. I respectfully ask for your vote and make this promise to you the voter, I will make your concerns my concerns and address our city's needs in a responsible, respectful, and timely manner.
