Current Job:Notary Public / small business services owner
Top 3 Priorities if Elected:
Not necessarily in this order.
Quality of Life for all citizens in Santa Maria
How do you plan to implement these priorities
Review the Police department procedures and management structure to become more efficient. Implement new policing technologies.
Enact a dangerous dog ordinance. Cleanup blighted areas. Remove gangs and gang symbols, ie. Graffiti, shoes from overhead cables and wires, and institute procedures to keep these items from returning. Enforce and/or strengthen the noise ordinance.
I would like to rescind the sales tax increase and adjust the salary structure. I do not believe the city manager should earn more than the Governor of California. I would like to get the lot at Betteravia and Blosser to become productive. The city should never have paid $13M for a lot only appraised for $4M. I would also review the SMAT contract. Look at the all the other services which do not pay for themselves or are not critical.
