HELPING PEOPLE IN CRISIS FIND STABILITY

The number of people living in crisis in our public spaces is growing. As supervisor, I will work with community partners, mental health experts, law enforcement and state legislators, to strengthen the county’s response to the mental health and drug addiction crisis that is driving the rise of homelessness in our communities. By supporting and expanding effective and proven behavioral health programs, the county can help more people transition from living on the streets to being self-supporting.

Crime is increasing in many areas of Contra Costa and many people say they feel less safe than before. I will work to restore the faith of residents that their community is safe. I will work closely with law enforcement and criminal justice departments in Contra Costa to hold criminals accountable for their actions, streamline the work of law enforcement personnel, and provide proper funding to expand training and reduce caseloads.

Our criminal justice rehabilitation system is broken. I will work to make behavioral health, job training, and substance abuse programs a condition of early release for those incarcerated. I will ask for metrics and audits of post-release services to help ensure we are working to reduce recidivism and increase stability of the formerly incarcerated.

TRANSPARENCY AND OPEN GOVERNMENT

I am proud of my reputation as a budget watchdog who is unafraid to take on special interests and call out government waste. As your next county supervisor, I pledge to continue my work for a more open, transparent government process to ensure taxpayers stay informed and up to date.

ATTRACTING AND GROWING SMALL BUSINESSES

Good local jobs are the bedrock of any thriving community. With record inflation, a global pandemic, and the largest hiring shortage in a generation, I promise to stand with business owners and defend against unfunded, expensive mandates and over-regulation placed on the backs of job creators.

PARTNER REGIONALLY, TO KEEP YOU MOVING

I have made it my mission to do all that I can to cut the red tape, end the silos of gridlock, and to open new lanes and regional partnerships to improve our transportation system at every level. We cannot allow ego, personal agendas, or politics of the day to stop you from getting where you're going. I will get to work on day 1 to improve transportation in our county, including roads, transit, ferries, shuttles and new innovative modes to come.

CLOSE LOOPHOLES, OPEN DOORS, EXPAND SERVICES THAT WORK

My experience in fighting waste, fraud and abuse in our region's largest transportation agency has uniquely prepared me to be your advocate for good government. As supervisor, I will work hard to expand our investments in the programs and services that work the best for you and your family.
