My Top 3 Priorities

  • I will work for a more open City Council to bring transparency to Carlsbad governance!
  • Making sure the Carlsbad City Council supports its first responders and all of the city's employees. They are there to serve us.
  • Increase the use of renewable energy source in as many Carlsbad operations as practical. Be more aggressive in implementing solar and other renewable energy sources. Implement Community Choice Energy
