What do you think are the biggest issues facing Huntington Beach right now? budget/infrastructure
What is one decision in the last year the City Council got right and why would you have supported it?
I fully support the council’s recent decision to begin the process of annexing Sunset Beach. I believe that adding Sunset Beach to our city will be mutually beneficial to the citizens of both communities.
What is one decision in the last year the City Council got wrong, or partially wrong, and why would you have voted differently?
I do not support the council’s decision to place a motion on November’s ballot relating to cellular towers. Regardless of the outcome of this vote, it is unlikely that Huntington Beach will prevail in its suit with T-Mobile. The exercise is a waste of taxpayer resources.
