Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Public Safety is my #1 priority. I will work to make sure our police have the support they need to best do their jobs. I will continue to push reforms on state legislative issues and encourage the community to join the Neighborhood Watch Program.
  • Homelessness is affecting all of California and we feel it right here in Whittier. I will continue to work with the community and our great Whittier organizations to find solutions for the homelessness problem.
  • Uptown Whittier continues to grow and prosper with new restaurants and shopping opportunities coming our way. With the formation of the Business Improvement District, we will continue to see great improvements to Uptown in the near future.

My number one priority is the safety of our community…always has been and always will be. With property crimes in California and Whittier increasing, many people in Whittier have personally experienced the increase in crime… thefts of packages on the front porch, car break-ins, home break-ins, etc.  And all of us went through the horrendous impact of the death of Officer Keith Boyer and the wounding of Officer Patrick Hazell; crimes that should have never occurred because the perpetrator should have been behind bars.

All of us are aware of the problem of homelessness in our community. Homelessness is a regional issue and I am proud to say that Whittier is a leader in combating homelessness.  Our efforts to house women and children are paying off with collaboration between the Women’s and Children’s Crisis Shelter, Salvation Army, The Whole Child and our newest organization, Imagine Whittier, which mentors homeless mothers and children to keep them from falling back into the cycle of poverty. Many of the homeless among us are mentally ill and our year-old specialized police Mental Evaluation Team (MET) has successfully intervened with more than a dozen homeless individuals who are now off the street, in supportive housing and receiving care.

We all have felt it…it seems like traffic in Southern California is up and more congested than ever and Whittier is no exception. It is a major concern of the Mayor and we have found that much of the traffic on Whittier Blvd. (east-west), Colima Road and Norwalk Blvd (north-south) is “cut through” traffic where people are avoiding the 60 freeway or the 605 freeway.

Uptown continues to grow and prosper with new restaurants and shopping opportunities coming our way. The formation of a business improvement district by the property owners holds great promise for continued revitalization. Breaking ground in 2018, the city is heavily involved with the development of a much needed new Uptown parking structure (tried parking in Uptown recently?). With the adoption of a streetscape infrastructure and beautification plan for Uptown, with improvements in security, streets, and sidewalks, this new “foodie” destination will be even more vibrant and offer more to our residents.

Dirt will be turned in April on this long awaited, 72-acre mixed use development. What has been a longstanding community eyesore/ blighted property will soon spring new life and new opportunities. The $300M project (yes, $300M!) will bring up to 750 high quality, market rate ownership and rental units, a brand new commercial shopping district and the rehabilitation of existing historic structures for a unique shopping and entertainment experience.
