Vote 2020

I love the city of Santa Monica. After living here nearly 15 years, feel called to lead our community and city out of the current fiscal crisis that our city leaders have put us in.
I am ready to listen and make the decisions necessary to move “California’s most celebrated beach city” forward on key issues like making Santa Monica’s streets safer, taking action to address the hundreds of homeless in the city, and improving our beach and environment while delivering the highest quality city services to our citizens.
