“Growing up I was always encouraged by my family and teachers to think globally and act locally. It stuck with me, and now I read and try to learn about the world everyday, while finding ways to contribute to the community.”

A key responsibility of our city leaders is proactive management of our infrastructure, including our streets and roads.

I will champion:

  • innovative solutions to traffic congestion and speeding

  • improved street conditions

  • continuous sidewalks and bike paths

  • smart growth strategies and long-term community planning

  • collaboration with neighboring cities and regional and state entities



As residents of a coastal community, we value our ocean, lagoons, and clean air, and we want to preserve our natural resources.

I will speak up for:

  • reasonable planning and zoning, and thoughtfulness regarding environmental impacts

  • care for our environment, protected areas, trails, and open spaces

  • meeting renewable energy and zero waste goals

Public Safety

Carlsbad relies on outstanding law enforcement and first responders to keep us safe and support us in times of need.

I will cultivate:

  • citizen engagement through strengthened training programs, neighborhood watch groups and digital tools

  • support for our police and fire departments

  • better relationships between police and residents, and more information sharing

Small Business


Our diverse economy in Carlsbad is home to many small businesses that provide key services and employ local residents.

I will encourage:

  • streamlined, online permit and license processes

  • open, regular communication with small local businesses and a problem-solving mindset

  • shopping locally and supporting our "mom and pop shops"
