I launched my campaign on the idea that El
Segundo can be a more welcoming and inclusive city
for all. There’s so much to love about El Segundo. Our
safe and friendly community. Excellent schools.
Proximity to the beach. And we’re an economic hub of

innovation all while maintaining our signature small-
town charm. Despite this, not everyone who lives,

works, or visits here experiences El Segundo in the
same way. Time and time again, we hear stories of
discrimination, bullying, and a general sense of
othering. I would utilize my position on Council to
work tirelessly to eliminate such instances. To be
clear, being more inclusive of those voices long
ignored or marginalized and acting on their needs
does not mean we are excluding those already in the
room. The Good of El Segundo is infinite.


I’m fully committed to maintaining El Segundo’s
stellar public safety reputation. Further, I want to
ensure we, as a City, always maintain our own police
and fire department rather than outsourcing such
services to Los Angeles County. As a Councilmember, I
will rely on the high standards we set for our public
safety departments, to institute more innovative and
effective police strategies to further transparency and
fairer treatment for all. The lion's share of our City’s
budget is police and fire. As the stewards and
taxpayers, we deserve to be well-informed on their
operations and we must be able to hold them
accountable when necessary. This is not done out of
disrespect to law enforcement, but out of respect to us
the people, who they are sworn to protect.


El Segundo residents still suffer from the harmful
effects of the Hyperion disaster, battling unbearable
odors and other side effects around the clock. I spoke
at the South Coast Air Management Quality District's
hearing and urged Hyperion and the City of Los
Angeles to do more - much more - and to take action
now. In my remarks, I supported the Proposed Order's
recommendations (fence-line monitoring, daily
maintenance checks, independent oversight, & odor
patrols) but I went further, calling for 1) more
immediate relief for our community’s ongoing misery,
2) the launch of a long-term health study, and 3) an
emergency action plan equipped with a clear chain of
command and accountability measures should a
disaster of this magnitude happen again. I’ve started a
dialogue with state, county, and other local officials to
direct their resources to accelerate relief. I pledge to
explore every avenue available to compel the City of Los Angeles to act with more urgency to fix this
unending crisis.


Do you know 40% of existing El Segundo residents
would qualify for affordable housing? This
according to the June 2022 draft of the City’s
Affordable Housing report. Housing has become
unaffordable for families in El Segundo because
there isn’t enough of it. For decades El Segundo
City Councils have ignored this problem by 1)
refusing to allow anything close to enough housing
to be built to meet increasing demand, and 2)
opposing state initiatives overriding local zoning
laws, claiming they will do it on their own but
continually failing to do so. All this explains why
there hasn’t been an apartment complex built in El
Segundo in 40 years and why only 53 total housing
units have been built since 2010. The time for
inaction is over. We need to increase our housing
supply to bring down costs, or risk losing even
more local control with additional intervention from

  • Reach creative solutions to maintain outdoor dining options that satisfy all stakeholders

  • Increase pedestrian and motorist safety with more four-way stop signs

  • Install sunshade structures at park playgrounds

  • Provide bicycle safety programs, particularly for electric bikes while enforcing bike safety laws

  • Commit to being a more sustainable city and investing in more green projects both large and small
