My Top 3 Priorities

  • Save Riverside County from its $3 billion unfunded pension liability crisis, thereby saving the County from potential bankruptcy, prosperity-crushing tax increases and massive cuts to services and pension payments.
  • Keep our promise to current retirees and current employees by keeping them in defined-benefit CalPERS retirement contracts, while providing new hires with competitive 401k-type retirement plans, just like their private sector counterparts.
  • Utilize the enormous savings from implementing Priorities 1 & 2 to fund increased staffing for public safety (more Sheriff's Deputies & jail staff), road improvements and more, all WITHOUT raising taxes.
