Issues

Refinery

One of my top priorities is to work with the oil refinery to eliminate hydrofluoric acid (HFA) while retaining jobs.

Housing Density

I aim to insure that housing density continues to be a local decision instead of a state mandate.

Business Friendly

It's very important to me to create a business friendly climate in our city. When on the Torrance City Council before, I advocated for streamlined regulation and championed the one-stop permitting center that has become so popular and allowed easier access and a friendly atmosphere for continued business growth in Torrance.

Budget

Maintaining a balanced budget is also a high priority for me. As a Councilman before, I chaired the Finance and Government Relations Committee, and even during difficult financial times, I prioritized balancing the budget while still making progress in the areas of infrastructure and public safety.

Roads

Our city needs to catch up on deferred maintenance. Road dieting is not acceptable.

Coyotes

I support removing coyotes from Torrance as the law allows. They have killed many household pets and pose a risk to young children as well. We cannot be satisfied to coexist with them any longer.
