My Top 3 Priorities

  • Partner with other affordable housing providers to build more "affordable housing choices" for those earning $75,000 and less, coupled with strong local-first policies.
  • Aggressively seek collaborative regional water solutions that reduce the cost of water and adds transparency. It will start with the passage of Measure J!
  • Expand access to high quality education, livable wage jobs and opportunities: while protecting our natural resources, parks, and open spaces.
