My Top 3 Priorities

  • I will always oppose all increases in density, thereby saving Stoneridge, preserving Maderas and keeping Poway great.
  • Keeping the budget balanced, opposing increases in taxes and fees.
  • Providing Poway residents impacted by the proposals more of a say in City Council decisions.

Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of San Diego (1)

What is the most significant challenge facing the City of Poway, and if you are elected, what steps will you take to address it?
Answer from John Mc Connin:

I believe the most significant challenge facing Poway is the quest towards continued increases in density by developers, the current Poway City Council and others.   

I believe we have to say no to increases in density unless and until we have solved our traffic problems and our short and long term water supply issues.  

If elected I will always vote to oppose increases in density during all four years of my term.  (no exceptions)
