Vision & Priorities
Maintaining our quality of life involves addressing many challenging issues.
My experience gives me the insight and readiness to tackle these challenges on behalf of our community from day one.
I will continue my support of well- funded police and fire departments. This includes state -of- the -art training for public safety personnel and a focus on community policing.
I will continue to proactively address our post -pandemic structural budget deficit through prudent fiscal management including support of our small businesses, a focus on economic development, and generating sources of new revenue through collaboration with state and local agencies.
Parks & Waterways
Our lagoons and waterways are integral to our unique quality of life. I will work to ensure quality parks and preservation of open spaces, while maintaining our beautiful waterways and completion of the levee project.
We must prioritize the repair of our aging infrastructure, complete our levee and wastewater treatment plant projects and begin the approved Recreation Center rebuild.
I will work toward the enhancement of traffic relief programs, prioritize intersection and signal improvements, collaborate with federal, state, and local partners to address the 92 and 101 interchanges, and solve “last mile” challenges.
I will continue long-term planning to protect against sea-level rise, address water circulation and contamination issues, prioritize the cleanliness and safety of our beachfronts and work toward diligently toward lower carbon emissions.
