Official Statement

For a decade, the majority of our Supervisors have voted to cut deals for cronies and big donors. Last year, for their good work, they tried to give themselves a 33% pay raise.
We need big change to restore people’s confidence that the Board of Supervisors is looking after the people’s interests – not their own interests – or the special interests.

We’ll only get real change and real leadership if voters like you insist on it.
I’ll bring a fresh face and new perspective to the Board. I’ll be a voice for tackling the cost of housing, growing a small business, and improving county government efficiency. I’ll be there for you every day.

I’m a third generation county resident, raising my family in the community where I grew up.
I’ve spent 22 years as a housing and community professional bringing hope to first time buyers, veterans, seniors, and our local workforce – while protecting neighborhood integrity.

I serve as Governor Brown’s appointee to the California Housing Finance Agency improving housing statewide.
As Vice-Mayor of Martinez, I’ve championed putting more police on our streets, helped protect 44 acres of ridgeline and worked to expand our marina to attract jobs – while balancing the budget and expanding reserves.

Mud will fly at me because fighting for change involves taking on the political machine. But I’m ready. Bring it on. Together, we must win this fight because the outcome is too important for our families’ future.

Vote for change. I’d be honored by your support.
