My Top 3 Priorities

  • PUBLIC SAFETY: The number one job of a Councilmember is to provide a safe secure community for its citizens. For every year I have been on Council Poway has been rated the safest City in the County and top 10% in the Sate.
  • SOUND FISCAL POLICIES: I have delivered eight balanced budgets with no new taxes with robust reserves. If re-elected i will assure you the same conservative fiscal policies.
  • GREAT QUALITY OF LIFE: Poway has been designated as one of the States best places to raise a family. Our schools, open space, trials and parks give Poway that special City in the County feel that I will maintain if re-lected.
