My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public Safety: I will support our Public Officers, Firefighters, and Paramedics by giving them the resources needed to fight to keep Roseville safe.
  • Fiscal Responsibility: I'm committed to listening to residents concerns, and holding city government responsible. We must maintain proper oversight of city spending and protect taxpayers from excessive employee pension debt.
  • Quality of Life: I support sound community planning to reduce traffic congestion, expedite the repair of city streets, and preserve Roseville's parks and open spaces.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Serving the community is why I’m running for Roseville City Council. For me, you could call it my life’s second calling.  I take great pride in keeping up with the pulse of the community.  Whether it’s through your phone calls and questions, listening to your comments at public meetings, seeing you at one of our city and neighborhood events, or meeting you for coffee to discuss our community.  It’s also personal for me.  My entire family lives in Roseville and South Placer County.  I want to make sure their children and grandchildren will also feel that Roseville is the best place to call home. I know this can only continue to be a vibrant place to live by keeping and expanding the tax base thru proper planning and infrastructure that will encourage business to remain and to relocate here in Roseville.
