My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public Safety: As the former Police Chief of Redding, public safety has always been my number one priority. More jail bed space is needed and recently we added over 100 beds by renovating our existing jail.
  • Drug Addicted Offenders: Approximately 70% of crimes are committed by repeat offenders who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Accountability is crucial, but we also have to provide treatment while they are in jail.
  • Mental Health Services: A person with mental health issues deserves direct assistance and support from professionals, instead of just thrusting them into the criminal justice system. They need help from specialists rather than just incarceration.
