This is and always has been my first priority. The number one responsibility of the city councilmembers is to keep our residents safe. I am dedicated to maintaining Arcadia as a safe place to live, do business, and raise a family.
California public policies have made keeping Arcadia safe a daunting challenge. Crime continues to decline substantially in Arcadia and we are looked to as the local leader in fighting crime.
Protecting Taxpayers – It’s Your Money
You work hard for your money. Government has a responsibility to use taxpayers’ hard-earned money wisely. I respect and treat taxpayers’ money as if it was my own. While on the city council, I often stood alone voting against fiscal waste.
Similarly, I was the only councilman to vote against the increase in the Utility Users Tax. I strongly believe we are taxed enough already and will continue to protect taxpayers by opposing wasteful spending.
I understand and appreciates that a person’s home is their “American Dream.”
Owning a home in Arcadia continues to be a great investment also. Despite international monetary circumstances, Arcadia home values continue to increase.
We Are One Arcadia
The great attributes of Arcadia that attracted my parents, now bring people from all over the world. We can do much if we work together.
Politics and government can become a dirty business. It’s my sincere goal to work with everyone on the council, in our government, and our community to bring us all together. We are one Arcadia.
I believe in Servant Leadership, to me public service is all about what I can give to my community, not feeding my ego or how I can personally benefit.
My actions and voting are always done with the family in mind.
