My Top 3 Priorities

  • Financial Responsibility & Public Safety - cut wasteful spending, reprioritize spending for more DA's, Sheriffs and Fire service.
  • Improved Transportation & Local Jobs - for better communiting and getting residents out of the commute and work close to home.
  • Protect the Delta & Open Space - No to the Delta Tunnels, preserve the Urban Limit Line
