Political Beliefs

Position Papers

Public Safety


The health and safety of our citizens is my #1 priority.  As Council Member and Mayor of Encinitas, I have been successful improving fire and emergency services, as well as upholding one of the lowest crime rates in San Diego County. 

It is incumbent upon elected officials to ensure we have adequate levels of public safety throughout our communities on a cost effective basis while preserving our ability to recruit and retain topnotch talent. By keeping public safety a top priority, we will maintain our focus on drug prevention, decreasing criminal activity and managing the side effects of the implementation of the Early Release law.




Attracting good paying jobs is the key to a sustainable economy in San Diego. 

We must work closely with the private sector to ensure a strong and diversified local economy. We must promote economic growth by balancing environmental protection with long range planning to develop programs and incentives that create good paying jobs, strengthen our economy and help small businesses grow.

Balanced Budget


The City of Encinitas and San Diego County have had balanced budgets for many years, which is critical to maintaining citizens’ quality of life. 

It is equally important that balanced budgets align with citizens’ priorities. To achieve the best results, jurisdictions should plan ahead for medium and long-term needs, as opposed to focusing only on short-term needs and projects. The County should continue to set aside plenty of money to meet pension obligations and fully fund reserves for unforeseen circumstances.  The County should be very proud of its record of fiscal discipline and AAA+ bond rating, which other counties strive to achieve.
