My Top 3 Priorities

  • I will preserve the unique character and quality of life that distinguish Carlsbad, including protection of key open spaces. I will demand fiscal discipline, balanced budgets & prudent reserves to protect taxpayers.
  • As your council representative, I will seek out and respect differing opinions and ensure city government is responsive to its residents. I will ensure public safety is our top budget priority to keep our neighborhoods and families safe.
  • I will work to provide a supportive environment for entrepreneurs, small businesses and emerging technologies to strengthen our local economy. I will oppose spending millions of our tax dollars on a new gold-plated city hall project.
