Fiscal Responsibility

My record of fiscal responsibility is demonstrable and verifiable. In the past I have voted in favor of programs that have reduced spending, eliminated unnecessary positions, and capitalized on savings. One particular program I supported resulted in the shoring up of our employee retirement system with the re-financing of previously unfunded obligations. This restructuring resulted in a savings of $30M to taxpayers over the next 15-year period.

There are, no doubt, difficult times ahead. We can expect reductions in the levels of most revenue sources. It will take someone already familiar with the budget process to evaluate the impacts and make sound decisions on how Thousand Oaks moves forward.

We are, once again, headed for an uncertain economic future. I was part of the council that previously navigated some of the difficulties resulting from the last recession and have the knowledge and experience working with municipal budgets to navigate these waters once again.
