My Top 3 Priorities

  • 1. Make our community safe by increasing the number of police officers, jail cells, firefighters and mental health services.
  • 2. Improving response times, unclog jail cells and emergency rooms with a sobering center.
  • 3. Address substance abuse, mental health and homelessness by working with the county, public and private agencies and the business community.
