I serve on City Council to ensure our district is at the forefront of the prosperity that thrives in the community and will use it to revitalize our City streets, parks, businesses and homes. Also I continue place public safety, financial responsibility, and business growth as essential steps to make it all happen, and I pledge to continue to make these my priorities.

I ask for your voteto continue to be Your voice in District 1 of La Mirada. A voice that echoes your concerns.
