My Top 3 Priorities

  • I want to give our police department the tools and manpower they need
  • Swenson is a community asset that provides valuable greenspace and recreation that should not be paved over with nearly 1,000 homes in an already congested area.
  • When I’m elected I will make sure a full audit of Measure A funds is completed.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Crime Reduction and Police Staffing

I want to double down on fighting crime in Stockton. While our numbers on the force are higher crime rates are still unbearable. Our police department is still overworked and understaffed. I am adamantly opposed to my opponents support for “Cash for Criminals”

I want to give our police department the tools and manpower they need to target criminals and gangs. I support vocational training programs that create opportunities for our younger citizens.

Protecting Swenson

I have lived by Swenson most of my life. Swenson is part of the rich history of Stockton and must be preserved. We cannot allow the destruction of our neighborhoods and community assets. Swenson is a community asset that provides valuable greenspace and recreation that should not be paved over with nearly 1000 homes in an already congested area. As a former city council member, I have always stood for transparency and fairness. As your representative I assure you I will stand up to the corrupt tactics being used to sneak the proposed sale and development of Swenson Golf Course by City Council. This issue was my motivation for running for Council. I could not sit and standby on the sidelines while my community is under attack by special interests.

Fiscal Accountability

Transparency is the basis for good government. When I am elected I will make sure that a full audit of Measure A funds is completed to ensure Stocktonians that the tax revenues are being spent correctly on law enforcement like promised. AS a former city council member, I read every line of the budget. I questioned City staff on keeping money local when at all possible. As a small business owner I recognize the importance of keeping expenses low and you have to be prepared for future downturns.
