What Are Our Priorities?

I love the city of Santa Monica more than ever. After nearly 15 years, I feel called to lead our community and city out of our current crisis. I am ready to make the decisions necessary to move “California’s most celebrated beach city” forward on key issues like making Santa Monica safer, improving our beach and environment and delivering the highest quality city services.
