My Top 3 Priorities

  • Affordable Housing- We must obtain federal and state dollars because we simply don’t have the budget as small cities to go after monies. As Supervisor for this region, I will ensure that the Housing Office work with the cities to support them.
  • Economic Development-Work with our Economic Department to implement shop local ordinances to make certain that our local businesses have opportunities to bid for projects in our local agencies. Focus tourism dollars into District 3.
  • Public Safety-Work with each City to partner on grants and ways of saving tax dollars through collaboration. Invest in youth prevention programs in District 3 to address the issues of violence. This will help with image and with job creation.
