My Top 3 Priorities

  • My top priority is to ensure Oro Loma remains financially sound while working to keep rates affordable.
  • We will continue needed capital improvement projects and in doing so I will consider every financing vehicles to reduce costs for our ratepayers.
  • Community and social responsibility was important when I served on City Council and it will be equally important in my service as a Director for Oro Loma.
