Believe in the Power of Community!
Board member of the Whittier City School District improving the quality of life of all Whittier.
Friends, neighbors and supporters:
This election has been about the future of Whittier and the potential to create a safe environment for all residents while building on our uniqueness as a destination city for visitors to enjoy our Uptown and outlying business environment.
My campaign continually focused on the need to preserve our rich history while at the same time expand our opportunities to become an economic powerhouse in the region.
There remains a lot of work to be done including the reimagining of current infrastructure needs that have declined over the years. At the top of the list is the growing demand for greater public safety measures, dealing with the expanding homeless population and the potential for over development that will affect congestion.
Your support of my ideals, plans and overall campaign efforts was both inspiring and humbling. My desire to serve our community has increased even more having met with so many families and residents of District 2 who shared their stories of the Whittier they remember and want to see in the near future.
I thank all of you for your efforts and for the encouraging words and acts you provided me over the past few months.
Now that the election has been finalized, we must hold those elected to serve to a high degree of accountability. Our work as involved residents is not over.
I look forward to working with all of you in defining the future of Whittier to make it a safe, enjoyable and ideal city to live, work and be entertained in – thank you all for your support!
