My Top 3 Priorities

  • I intend to bring sanity back to recurring City Government spending so we have resources available to maintain and improve our infrastructure.
  • Market Seaside's strengths! This includes maximizing synergies from our physical environment (adjacency to ocean, Ft. Ord National Monument, etc), great weather, affordable housing and shopping.
  • Improve and leverage relationships with "external" agencies such as CSUMB and the various JPA's in which we are members and with our neighboring cities. The "Seaside First" mantra by the current administration has cost us dearly.
