As a lifelong Gilroy resident and current Councilman, I have dedicated both my life and career to the City in which we are all proud to call home.
As a leader for our community, I have always strived to make fair, independent, and educated decisions for the betterment of our City. After deep reflection and conversations with friends and family, I’ve decided the time has come for me to run for Mayor of Gilroy.
Too many recent decisions coming out of the Council Chambers have led to a lack of confidence in City Hall. Our residents believe decisions are being made outside of the public process and elected officials aren’t listening to their concerns. I want to restore trust in City Hall. But most importantly, I want to ensure that Gilroy remains the best place to live, work, and play.
There are numerous issues that will be discussed in the next few years, and the choices made by our leaders will have a tremendous impact on the future of Gilroy. Our local economy, our infrastructure, and ability to create long-term jobs for residents, as well as the safety of our families all depend on our Mayor making sound decisions for the betterment of the city.
As your Mayor, I will work hard to make sure our growth rate doesn’t exceed our ability to provide city services to our current residents, promote smart economic development, exercise fiscal accountability and ensure the safety and security of our citizens.
The time to invest in our community and our future is now, and we need commonsense leadership that will take initiative and offer responsible solutions for a better tomorrow.
I hope you will join me in taking Gilroy to new heights. Please feel free to contact me anytime, I am always here to listen. 408-710-8508.
