My Top 3 Priorities

  • Explore all avenues for solving Ojai's water shortage and promote a water-respecting culture
  • Prioritize the needs of the people who live here---now and for future generations. Protect our community housing stock for our residents. Implement the bicycle and pedestrian master plan.
  • Prioritize a proper balance between our tourist based economy and our residents who preserve, provide, and protect all the reasons that tourists come to our valley.
