Increase in Population Growth, Train traffic, we have an Affordable Housing crisis going on in all socio-economic levels, Street maintenance/repair
I would love to see a directive in lifting the moratorium on shelters so that those in our community that can provide those services can continue that process. Provide public restrooms with sharp containers and partner with the Interfaith community, non-profits and local businesses to help provide forms of shelter, bathing facilities, meal sharing, recovery services and re-training services.
Our Elders need to be honored and upheld. There are those in our community that suffer every year during the holidays due to fireworks and we need create common sense rules around the blowing up of explosives for entertainment. We also need to reassure our older community members that they will have a safe place
I think it’s important to encourage a positive relationship between ICE, our local police, County Sheriff, and our Illegal population. Police Leadership is important to me and goes deeper than Immigration. We need to have a comprehensive path to immigration that is realistic and attainable. Our country was built on immigration and we need to uphold those values of what makes America great.
Small Businesses Police Leadership Affordable Housing Clean Water Equality Street Maintenance

Out of those, Affordable housing is the most urgent. We have seniors, vulnerable adults, at risk youth and unstable families living on the streets or in their cars with already approved assistance and nowhere to go. Let’s change that.
I utilize skills that focus on Interpersonal relationships and communication with solution forward conversations. Realistic goal setting and a willingness to be of service will help facilitate effective negotiations and partnerships.
