My first priority is to continue to maintain a safe city with the resources needed to serve our residents. I support providing law enforcement and firefighters the resources needed so they can safeguard our community. Additionally, I believe that a safe city is a flourishing city. Increasing ways for our public safety professionals to utilize technology with control rising costs
I will continue to make a positive impact by shaping policies that function well for Desert Hot Springs and the Coachella Valley. I fight for what is right for the city. I do this because I love serving the hard working descent residents in our city.
As a parent with five grandchildren, I feel a responsibility to protect our students at all our schools, parks, streets and neighborhoods. By being an inclusive city with input from our residents we will be able to create a safe well planned community.
Access to safe routes to school and an environment for our children and youth to attend school with stable learning environments allow our next generation to achieve their goals. That is why I believe we should make investments to upgrade school infrastructure, safeguard classrooms, and provide our children with the tools they need to thrive.
One important public safety priority is increasing funding for hiring and training of additional police officers. The City also needs to focus on school traffic safety by advocating for more dialogue between parents, City police and School Safety Patrols. This is necessary to bridge the gap of providing safety during the morning and after school when our students are walking to school and home and in their parent’s vehicles.
