My Top 3 Priorities

  • Improving Infrastructure / Reducing Traffic: As a member of the Riverside County Transportation Commission I have brought over $3 Billion to our region to improve highways and reduce congestion. I pledge to continue that work when elected supervisor.
  • Public Safety / Homelessness: As the Mayor of Corona I have worked alongside our local law enforcement to make our city one of the safest in the country, and will continue my efforts to reduce crime and tackle the homelessness issue county wide.
  • Fiscal Responsibility / Job Growth: Our County has a serious budget crisis currently that I plan to solve by ensuring responsible budgeting and working with local schools and businesses to attract high paying job to our region to generate revenue.
