My Platform is based firmly upon my belief in this city as a whole. My vision for Salinas goes beyond the mechanical functions of Government and into the human element. When we begin to develop vibrant communities rich in culture and personal relationships, the city will become greater than it has ever been. My goal in office is simply to help government foster opportunities for the people so that they can make, and continue to make, a city worthy of their pride.
I made my platform simple on purpose. Of course, there is much more to find out about me and my mission. Please explore the website more, subscribe to our newsletter, or join us for one of our upcoming events. You are the reason I am in office and reason I want to be here, so don’t be shy!
