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.

Many of these small businesses provide essential services within Thousand Oaks and the surrounding areas. Some of these businesses struggled prior to this pandemic, leaving their future success in question.

As a city, we need to do whatever we can to return those struggling back to a sense of normalcy. Your elected leaders also need to be focused on restoring the local economy and returning quality of life to those impacted. Quality of life begins with the ability to work and keep our families and community safe.

As your Councilmember, I will focus on engaging with businesses of all sizes to see to it that impediments to their re-opening, rebuilding and continued success are adjusted to recognize our new reality. I will work with The Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce, the voice of businesses in our community, to adjust local ordinances wherever possible in an effort to get people back to work and reset our local economy.

The Thousand Oaks business community has answered the call once again. They have been there for all of us, supporting our many schools, youth sports teams, nonprofit organizations, fire victims and the families of the Borderline victims. It is time we return the favor and do what we can to support them! We will need to work together to rebuild safely, and I’m prepared to navigate the difficult and necessary decisions that will need to be made to protect our residents and our local economy.
