We need your help to make change in Redondo Beach.
Let's face it, Redondo Beach has been stagnant for years. Over 12 years of the same old promises, but nothing ever gets done. We are notoriously known as being business unfriendly.
We need full transparency, not negative voices that always have to demonize and block progress. It is time to work together, develop real solutions for our public safety, maintain local control, and build a financially secure city.
Redondo Beach is a small community with a big heart. It is time to put our past behind us and move on. In my professional life, I find solutions to difficult problems. It is time to apply that to the place we are all happy to call home.
An out-of-the-box thinker that will find realistic ways to get active community updates and responses.
Forgetting State and National issues, it is at the local level that we can make a difference. I am not running to begin a political career but instead help bring the local voices throughout Redondo Beach into our decision-making. It is local issues that we can make a change. And that is where I want to start.
I am not stepping in with any fixed agendas or goals of doing anything based on my personal beliefs. We have seen where that has taken us, and it just does not work. We do not always have to agree on everything, but we also do not have to demonize and create battles due to this opinion difference. We will all win some things, and we will all lose something. I want to make sure that the Redondo Beach community has an equal say in decisions being made.
Redondo Beach is split into 5 Districts, each with representation on the City Council. While the primary goal is to focus on their district, they are also supposed to consider the city as a whole, One Redondo. The Mayor serves as a moderator to this process and at council meetings. They do not typically get a vote unless there is a tie to be broken. The Mayor can veto a decision, but this should not be based on personal beliefs but instead due to justifiable city issues. These vetoes should be used sparingly.
In my office as Mayor of Redondo Beach, I will help facilitate the divide. Redondo Beach has been a fantastic place to call home, and I think we can make it even better. I will focus on hometown public safety, local control, and financial stability. These are some things that have been rough for us over the past couple of years. We need to find ways to use our resources, not raise taxes but increase the quality of life. I am business-friendly and will make sure we have the right private-public relationships to help drive us forward. Redondo Beach should be a city that is amazing to live and work in AND conduct business. That is my commitment to you!
My first three priorities will be...
Building, unifying and balancing decisions throughout the entire city. This isn’t about one area. We need full input and complete transparency.
Police, Fire and Zoning should all be unique and under the control of Redondo Beach not Los Angeles County or defined by Sacramento.
Not only for the recovery from this pandemic, but also reversing the complexities they encounter when doing business in Redondo Beach.
I will fight for One Redondo, working together for our future!
This is about us, not special interests
It has been an honor to raise my family, work, and volunteer in Redondo Beach. I have been an active participant in my children's education and schools. There is nothing more that would make me happy than safer neighborhoods and safer school routes. Our children are our future, and I want to see many Redondo Beach families' traditions continue. It's inevitable; we will grow. But we have to build a sustainable life to preserve what we have. Redondo Beach is a small beach town, and it can remain that way. Parks, open spaces, and our business districts have to all thrive together.
There are some people that run from fires, others that run towards. Chris is definitely the latter. Over the past several years of knowing him, I have seem him focused on helping people and our city. He would make a great leader.
There is much more to come! Join my mailing list and I'll keep you updated!
