Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Honesty and transparency are two of the most important qualities in a good leader. My ultimate goal as a leader is to ensure everyone has a voice and the opportunity to access public officials. Many times constituents feel like their leaders don't listen to them. They feel like their elected officials are hard to access. Community outreach is extremely important to me. I firmly believe our locally elected officials should be honest, open and easy accessible to every citizen. I believe I kept my promise to adhere to these attributes over my term with the Castaic Area Town Council. I will work hard to remain honest, open and easily accessible to the constituents of the Santa Clarita Valley.
