My Top 3 Priorities

  • Affordable Housing & Addressing the Homeless and Housing Crisis: I supported Measure A1, raising hundreds of millions of dollars to support affordable housing, and am leading the Counties efforts on encampment hygiene and sanitation.
  • Quality of Life Issues for Impacted Communities: I am pursuing a regional, state-wide, and local strategy to eliminate illegal dumping. Using crime prevention through environmental design, our efforts have planted 146 trees in dumping hotspots.
  • A Full and Complete Count on the 2020 Census: Ensuring a full count means our communities receive the resources and voice they deserve.
