I have lived in District 3 for 33 years. I have seen our quality of life degrade - homelessness, crime, trash are all on the rise to indefensible and unsustainable levels. We need to reverse the legacy of failure, and I aim to bring my diverse set of professional skills (a pro tem judge, a lawyer, a mental health counselor, a small business owner and a housing provider) to make D3 what it should be: SJ's best place to raise a family and start a business.
Downtown resident, pedestrian, bike and visitor safety is dependent on our city departments and their ability to function together. Moving forward as a cleaner, faster, smarter City.
We want our parks, creeks and sidewalks to be clean, inclusive and inviting.
The plight of our unhoused neighbors has been tolerated, abandoned, and neglected for too long. They deserve better and we must act together.
I have called Downtown home since 1989. I live here. I work here. And I bring together a wide range of relevant experience. Read more about my realistic solutions to improve downtown on my Medium account here.
