- My primary responsibility as Mayor is to make sure we can raise our families in safety. That means ending high crime rates, cracking down on gangs, placing more officers on patrol, and strengthening our on-campus school security. Just as important, we must also insure our police are fully trained and respect every citizen they encounter, regardless of race.
- We must end homelessness in Hawthorne. I will work with all available private and governmental resources to provide a dignified, and permanent solution to this challenge. That solution will include not only sustainable and quality housing, but also help insure the health and welfare of the homeless and local residents who reside around them.
- Quality, low cost housing is critical to a thriving community. My goal is to attract affordable housing into our city so we can provide quality living environments for young and old alike.
- We must make sure our pot holes are repaired quickly, street repairs are conducted at night to reduce congestion, minimize traffic impact, and modernize our infrastructure.
