My Top 3 Priorities

  • Increased funing for public education Pre K-14, College and University (Degrees Not Debt) has an opportunity to achieve.
  • Income Equality and Tax Fairness to restore the Middle Class, the protection and dignity of working families, and the creation of good paying jobs in both the public and private sectors.
  • The election of a Democratic President and regaining Democratic majorities in the U.S. Senate and House because the Supreme Court is at stake and issues of importance such as those above, global warming, health care for all, and equal protections.

Biography

I grew up in the north San Fernando Valley, lived in Long Beach for a time where family stills partly resides, and in the Studio City and Toluca Lake area for the past 30+ years. I'm a fifth generation Californian with four siblings whose parents retired from from NASA and LAUSD.&nbsp

As a committee member, I think some of the primary goals should relate to economic well-being and societal justice which provides an added sense of community pride. These goals can thrive within a safe environment, both economic and personal -- and the ability to mitigate the ongoing traffic and esthetic obstacles throughout the county.
