My Top 3 Priorities

  • Keep Santa Maria Safe- Look for support in areas of prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies to address our city's increase of violence. I have been working with the County and City to get people dedicated to these issues.
  • Create Jobs for our Community. I have a strategy to bring back office jobs from mid-sized and mature tech firms to provide high income jobs. This will diversify our economy and provide the extra spending for our local businesses.
  • Youth Activities. I am working with the parks and recreation to provide more services for our youth and partner with the elementary schools to provide the needed activity programs to develop and support our youth.
