  • Promote adoption of "zero waste" food composting services by city governments.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I support the platform of the California Democratic Party promoting equality, fairness and prosperity, and the fight for $15 so Californians can work with dignity toward tangible financial goals, ably attend school, and make a better life for themselves and their families. I oppose urban development in rural San Diego County in accordance with the guidelines laid out in the county's 30-year general plan, and call for at least 10 more fire stations to be built in the city of San Diego so it is on par with other fire-prone California communities. I strongly support rooftop solar, the statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, the implementation of the city of San Diego's climate action plan, and a functional, regional fire protection system that focuses on the entire fire risk equation. I also support aggressive litter pickup in all communities, especially the city of San Diego. As a base level of civic pride, litter and trash have no place in our parks or along our streets and freeways.
