Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Public Safety: As a 20-year law enforcement veteran, Charles is the only candidate with real world experience. A comprehensive plan to address homelessness, an ordinance to regulate sober living homes, and be a partner to our police officers.
  • Development: Development in Dana Point has to be responsible, sustainable, and bring value to our community and residents. More importantly, it needs to honor the quality and character of our small-town without overbuilding.
  • Bring integrity, trust, and transparency back to our local government. Charles is a huge advocate for responsible spending, transparent government, and the residents' right to be involved and informed about their local government.
