I believe we are at an important time in the history of Upland. Our city has been on the brink of financial insolvency for several years and we need leadership that is not afraid to take charge and do what is right for the taxpayers and businesses.
Having served on the Planning Commission for 16 years, working as a 30-year local teacher and longtime current President of Upland Heritage, I have dedicated my life to making our community better. I fought to improve city standards, attract good development and rid our city of illegal businesses.
Through Upland Heritage, I helped create nine historic districts and co-wrote an educational book on historic preservation to protect our downtown and beautiful neighborhoods.
My main goal is to protect Upland from bankruptcy and increase revenue to the city to maintain public services. We must stay within our budgetary means, promote economic growth and create more local jobs.
Upland residents need a City Council that can provide positive, pro-active leadership and is not afraid to act in difficult situations to protect residents and taxpayer dollars.
It is my pledge to Upland residents that I will be the strong, decisive leader our city needs to get back on track.
I would be honored to have your trust and your vote for Upland City Council.
