Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • #1- SAFETY for our citizens is my foremost priority. We need to hire more police and firefighters. To accomplish this I will work to continue to increase city revenue by encouraging businesses to invest in El Cajon.
  • #2- AFFORDABLE HOUSING is a vital need for our City. To support this this we need to encourage developers to build affordable housing within our city by expediting permits and projects and leaving our no impact fees policy in place.
  • #3- JOB CREATION is a necessity for the future of El Cajon. I will continue to support policies that bring job growth. Part of this is to attract new businesses like we did with Fox, Marriott. and several new car dealerships.
