My Top 3 Priorities

  • Bring more manufacturing jobs to well established and designated industrial areas in Pittsburg.
  • Keep public safety a top priority for the city. Collaborate with neighboring cities to develop a multi-city strategy to public safety which will prevent spill over crime into Pittsburg.
  • Develop a traffic reduction strategy to alleviate traffic congestion throughout Pittsburg.
