As a third generation Santa Maria resident, I have attended local schools, Allan Hancock College, and San Jose State University. My husband and I owned and operated a small business for over thirty years.
As a member of the Santa Maria City Council for the past ten years, I have consistently supported critical services such as fire, police, libraries, education and public works. I have adamantly opposed government wastefulness and over-regulation while investing the taxpayers dollar wisely.
My community service includes 4-H leader, County Human Services Commission, Trustee of Santa Maria Joint Union High School District, President and member of Marian Medical Foundation, County Housing Task Force, Dune Center, Methamphetamine Prevention Network, Fighting Back Santa Maria Valley, Peace Week Committee, Rotary and many others.
Government does not create jobs but it can create an environment of bad policy and uncertainty. Bad policy kills jobs and businesses need to operate with certainty. We need to do the right thing for people in our community.
Jobs for families mean a return for taxpayers. Without a strong economy we cannot have a healthy and thriving community for our families. As Mayor of the City of Santa Maria, I represent all of the people, not just a segment of the population. My commitment is to build on our past successes and continue to support and serve the citizens and businesses of the Santa Maria Valley.
