My Top 3 Priorities

  • Crime prevention: Reducing gangs and youth violence in our neighborhoods is my top priority. That is why I have secured millions in state and federal funding to support gang prevention in the County.
  • Affordability: Our County is suffering from a shortage of housing that people can afford. I have convened cities, the County and builders to work together to create more housing for future generations.
  • Protect our economic vitality and our natural resources: I understand that our County’s natural beauty, water and wildlife contribute to our quality of life and our region’s economic vitality.

Protecting Our County for Future Generations

I fight for you, not special interests. I’ll continue to stand up to unaccountable developers who don’t care about our cherished natural places or the traffic their developments create, and continue to keep County government transparent and responsible.  My continued advocacy for local jobs, affordable workforce housing, and early childhood education will ensure all of our communities in the County are healthy, safe and stable for future generations.

Since the day I was sworn in in 2009, I have devoted my time on the Board of Supervisors to listening to your needs – and striving to make county government as responsive, transparent and effective as possible.

I am proud to champion your interests, not special interests – and we have changed the way the County does business:

Ø  I am the first Supervisor to hold regular community meetings to review Board of Supervisors agendas and discuss issues with residents – over 200 community  meetings so far!

Ø  I championed and increased public access and government transparency by requiring the County to put the Board of Supervisors agenda on the County website.   

Ø  Monterey County must get its fair share. I increased public participation in the development of the County Legislative Platform, which sets priorities for State and Federal resources coming into Monterey County.  

Ø  I advocated for and successfully implemented an annual process  that for the first time, requires performance reviews for departments and top County staff, ensuring priorities and goals are on track – and taxpayer dollars are spent wisely.


Being accessible allows me to listen to you, know the issues, roll up my sleeves and fight for what you care about!
