My Top 3 Priorities

  • Responsibly managing growth and diversifying our business base to fund our amazing parks, programs, roads, trolleys, and beautification of Doheny Village.
  • Bringing honesty, trust, and real transparency to our city council by not being beholden to developers or special interests.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Jamey believes in small government, limited but reasonable regulation, and efficient government spending.  He will focus on the core functions of government: public safety, investment in infrastucture like parks and roads, and fostering a vibrant economy.  A vibrant, diverse business base allows city government to fund all the services that improve quality of life for residents.
