My Top 3 Priorities

  • Economic Development. This has two benefits; 1) jobs for local residents, and 2) revenue for the city coffers.
  • Safe Routes to School. This has been an ongoing priority of mine since I was Mayor in 2012. The City of Cloverdale has several ares wher there are no sidewalks. Safety is a concern when students are walking along the roadways.
  • Community outreach. We have a multifaceted community, i.e. Retired, Latino, millennials, young families, etc. It is important that we (City Council) reach out to all.
