My Top 3 Priorities

  • Education & Jobs: By investing in our youth we are investing in the future of the city. We have to work to ensure that we have excellent schools, parks, libraries, and that we support current businesses and attract new business that create new jobs
  • Neighborhood Accessibility: One of my goals will be to modernize our infrastructure and catch-up on needed repairs to improve the quality of life for residents and make the city more attractive for business and visitors.
  • Helping the Homeless Get Back on Track: I will work to seek out community partners and programs to develop a sustainable model that can help provide services and housing to Veterans, families, and individuals facing homelessness.

Dear Neighbors,

As a lifelong resident, educator for the Chula Vista Elementary School District, and homeowner in Southwest Chula Vista I have seen and experienced the issues affecting our community firsthand. I am running for Chula Vista City Council District 4 because I have the right combination of leadership experience and love for this community that will keep Chula Vista moving in the right direction.

Southwest Chula Vista is a vibrant community in a beautiful city and we need a leader who will protect the integrity of our neighborhood. As your Councilman, my priority will be to put residents first. I will work tirelessly to protect, promote, and improve our community. By supporting public safety, economic growth, revitalizing older neighborhoods, finding solutions for homelessness, and investing in our youth we can achieve a higher quality of life for all residents of Chula Vista and welcome new businesses, residents, and visitors.

This election is about the future of our community and the City of Chula Vista. I hope that I can win your trust and your vote for Chula Vista City Council District 4.
