I will never take campaign donations.

No more special favors for developers and out of State Campaign Donors. The corruption at City Hall must end.

West Hollywood is not prepared for the future, having had the same leadership and mindset for 35 years. If we don't get some fresh representation and new ideas, our town will become just another part of LA.


My top ten concerns for West Hollywood:


1. Public Safety

2. Renters Rights

3. Senior Quality of Life Issues

4. Residential Neighborhood Safety and Improvements.

5. Overdevelopment

6. Homelessness

7. City Departmental Accountability and Oversight

8. City Budget review and reform.

9. Campaign Finance Reform

10. City Business Transparency.


I love West Hollywood. I have lived here over 20 years and plan to stay here. I can see how the essence of Weho is slowly changing. Those of us who love West Hollywood just the way it is, need to step up and make sure that elected officials are not influenced to change the West Hollywood we know and love.
