My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public Safety is My #1 Priority: Increase the number of sworn officers, Improve emergency response times and ensure safe neighborhoods with neighborhood watch programs.
  • Balance Our City budget every year elected, being a Fiscal Watchdog over Our Tax Money and how it is spent.
  • I will make myself available to the developers and advocate for healthy and economical choices, instead of decisions based on politics.
