Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Dear Redlands Neighbors, I walked door to door to speak with you, to understand the issues that matter to you, and to show you that I am committed to representing your voice at City Hall. As a proud Redlands resident, I want what you want- a safe and prosperous Redlands to raise my family in. My focus will be on the issues that matter to the people of Redlands- health, education, and family. As a health policy analyst, I work extensively to analyze the short-and-long-term effects of various policies on the people of our community. While I have innovative solutions and a fresh perspective on some of our old problems, I also respect and value the tradition and rich culture of Redlands. I will do my best to ensure that all the decisions we make will be in line with your values and your vision for our future. I am accessible and accountable, and I will make every decision with fiscal prudence to ensure that your tax dollars are not being wasted. I will always support our veterans, police officers, firefighters, teachers, and local business owners who commit their lives to ensuring that ours are better. I am excited to start this journey with you!
