My Top 3 Priorities

  • Gang & Crime have to be reduced if we are to attract business and increase housing. I will bring in additional resources to fight crime and reduce gang violence.
  • Homelessness is a national crisis and non more than in LACD7 In the North East SFV we have the highest homeless population of any area in the San Fernando Valley. As a RE Broker & community acitivist I have a strategic plan on how to address it
  • Creating JOBS are essential if the area is going to be vitable and be able to attract business. I have an MBA and Computer Science Degree that along with my professional and business contacts I will be able to accomplish this goal
