My Top 3 Priorities

  • To improve the jobs to housing imbalance in Elk Grove. Too many residents have to commute out-of-town for their employment.
  • To bring good-paying jobs to Elk Grove by bringing in 21st century jobs as in bio-tech and other Silicon Valley technology.
  • To maintain our quality of life especially as this relates to our traffic congestion and our public safety.
