As a small business owner and nonprofit leader, I understand the importance of creating jobs and the value of feeding your families with dignity. During my term on the Western Municipal Water District Board of Directors, I have focused on ensuring a balanced budget that provides high-quality services and a safe and reliable water supply to the public. We were one of the first water districts to ensure water access continued during the pandemic.
Through my weekly food drives, I have seen the effect on Americans who struggle as the American dream falls further out of reach. Families are struggling to make ends meet due to the increased cost of living, lack of investment, and support for business owners. As our state recovers, I envision our region leading economic growth driven by entrepreneurs, workers, innovators, and youth.
