Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • My first priority is reducing crime in Mission Viejo. Mission Viejo was ranked 2nd safest city in the country in 2009, and only 19th safest in the state in 2017. Access to more victim resources and stronger community policing will help reduce crime.
  • My second priority is public health. I plan to increase access to mental health and addiction resources to ensure all of Mission Viejo's resident's can lead a healthy, productive life.
  • My third priority is improving the local economy. Housing prices make it difficult for people that were born here and call this place home to remain living here. By boosting the local economy, all workers will earn enough to live here comfortably.

Biografía

I was born at Mission Hospital on November 14, 1992. I grew up in Mission Viejo—I went to Philip J. Reilly Elementary School, Newhart Middle School, and then I graduated from Capistrano Valley High School in 2011. I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2014, where I majored in Political Science (with subfield specializations in American Politics and International Politics) and minored in Philosophy. I then attended the UCI School of Law. While there, I was a Staff Editor on the UCI International, Transnational, and Comparative Law Journal and I worked as a student attorney at the UCI Domestic Violence Clinic. I am now an attorney living in Mission Viejo, and I would like to run for City Council to give back to the community where I grew up.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

I believe that government is the best mechanism we have for coming together to solve the issues that afflict our society. I believe that the public entrusts each elected official with great power through our elections, and that our elected officials have the responsibility to use that power in the best interest of the public. Most ordinary Americans are too busy tending to the demands of modern daily life that we cannot demand that they become policy experts in what little free time they have. Elected officials, then, have the responsibility to diligently research the issues, possible solutions, and come to well-reasoned, well-supported policy prescriptions that will benefit the public. Politicians have a moral obligation to undertake policy that will best serve their constituents—regardless of ideology and personal feelings.
