As a candidate for Elk Grove City Council, my commitment to public service has always been deeply ingrained in my value system.  After being elected to the city council in 2008, it was a goal to connect with all members of the community.  

I am a firm believer that community involvement in our local government is paramount to the success of Elk Grove and effective public engagement which was lacking on the city council.  For the last three years, I have worked to build public confidence in the city council.  

I believe it is vital that the Elk Grove City Council must engage its citizens in what I call the “Community Involvement Program.”   

Community Involvement Program 

  • Make communications a priority
  • Openness builds accountability
  • Understand the community by making it real, concrete and visible
  • Update the community on developments and address questions, concerns, ideas and comments in order for the community to monitor project milestones or the lack thereof
