I’m running for City Council to ensure that Fullerton remains a great place to raise my daughters.
As a member of Fullerton’s Infrastructure Review Committee, I’ve seen decreases in city services and neglected streets. The cuts were prompted by massive budget deficits that resulted from overreliance on real-estate-boom development fees.
I’ve worked in the public and private sectors and served as a planning commission chairman. My experience will bring a fresh perspective to our City Council. Stronger fiscal controls are the first step to preventing out-of-control spending and preserving essential public services during future economic downturns.
A balanced approach to city planning will ensure that even in a tough economy, the city always has funds to preserve parks, fight gangs, maintain roads, and support quality educational opportunities. We can prevent future deficits and preserve Fullerton’s family-friendly atmosphere by working with the business community to grow the economy, create jobs, and increase sales tax revenue.
With a balanced budget and sensible planning we can ensure that Fullerton continues to be great for future generations.
