My Top 3 Priorities

  • Increase public safety both short term and long term by having police sub-stations, police body cameras, more Community Service Officers to relieve Sworn offices for patrol etc.
  • Political reform, such as Directly elected mayor, defined rotation for appointments of Vice Mayor and defined process for assigning high vote getting runner up to fill council vacancy.
  • Economic reform to ease the housing crisis, and transportation network over load.
