My Top 3 Priorities

  • I plan to continue resolving the homeless issue in Pomona.
  • I want to make City Hall more transparent and develop informational forums to increase resident participation.
  • I want to improve our crumbling infrastructure: parks, alleys, sidewalks and streets. Main corridor beautification goes with this as well.
