My passion is to help District build and reach its fullest potential. I am concerned with the disconnection with our homeless citizen's, and I would like to propose a task team to offer a complete package of transformative supportive supportive services in conjuction with the services that are offered by the county. Hopefully, these services will return this over looked population into productive and self-suffcient citizens of our community. I was voting member and one of the creators of Project #5 of the Transformative Climate Communities Collaborative, where we chose and awarded $70,000,000.00 towards community improvement projects to South West Fresno, Chinatown and Downtown Fresno. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I have been a community advocate in District 3 for the past 10 years, once I purchased my home. I am a big Code Inforcement person. I was given the honor of serving as a lead plaintiff for five years of a class action lawsuit against Darling International and with the assistance of other outstanding community members, the City Council voted unanimously for their relocation.

While studing for my BA in Liberal Arts, which I obtained from Fresno Pacific University. It became apparent that through education we can uplift our community.While working for Fesno Unified School District, I had the opportunity to support and encourage my students and their parents. I would like to implement mentoring and job trainging programs for our youth. It is important to invest in our children, for they are our future.
