Generating New Ideas. Solving Big Problems

 

    “I am the recipient of multiple teaching awards as a middle and high school educator for nearly 30 years. I have also been a community advocate for as long as I can remember. I take pride in my ability to listen to people — their concerns and needs, regardless of politics or background — and then work on their behalf to find solutions. The diverse community of students that I have been fortunate to teach has helped me see that despite our differences, we can all work together to achieve common goals that promote prosperity, opportunity and equality. I would like the privilege to serve as your County Supervisor. I believe the residents of District 2 — like most of Kern County — worry about crucial public services, such as law enforcement, fire protection and roads. We deserve to feel safe. We deserve to have access to good-paying jobs. We deserve affordable housing. I will work to bridge public and private resources to improve these quality-of-life issues. I look forward to working with you to ensure that county government is responsive to our needs. Together, we can achieve our common goals.

I would be honored to earn your support and your vote. If I am elected to represent you, I will:

N

Work to attract living wage jobs to our district so that families don’t have to struggle to afford basic necessities.

N

Dedicate myself to ensuring we have equally accessible, quality education for our children — from elementary school to college and vocational training.

N

Help improve infrastructure; roads, sidewalks, water and sewer, to benefit our neighborhoods and attract new businesses.

N

Increase public safety, to help insure we all feel safe.
