The Issues

“Thousand Oaks residents have every reason to be proud of our city.”

Public Safety

As a 35-year retired law enforcement professional, I know first-hand the importance of public safety in a community. I have been on the front line of that fight both professionally and as your advocate in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. Having served on both the League of California Cities, Public Safety Committee and as the Chair of the National League of Cities, Public Safety & Crime Prevention Committee, I have worked to strengthen laws that protect both public safety and the rights of individuals.

Fiscal Responsibility

My record of fiscal responsibility is demonstrable and verifiable.

The early councils were wise to consider this and this has led to the ongoing purchase and protection of additional acreage whenever possible, of which I supported and voted in favor of during the time I served previously on council. Protected open space is essential to the integrity and character of our community.

Covid-19 Response

The full impact of Covid-19 on our community is not yet known, but it’s no secret that many are hurting — all of us impacted in one way or another. What we do know is that hundreds of local businesses have been forced to shutter their doors, placing thousands of our family, friends and neighbors out of work. This financial hardship will not go away as quickly as it came.
