"Stop Gas Tax"
It’s inexcusable to see pictures of gas prices in the $6 and $7 range. I cannot stand by and let San Diegans suffer while Sacramento politicians build up their coffers.

I’m focused on reflection and gratitude this holiday season. As I reflect on the changes brought in 2020 and 2021, there’s a lot I’ve missed in light of our new normal. I’ve missed going out to our different communities in District 5 and interacting with all of our... — Updated 12/29/2021

"Rural Communities Under Attack"
For many, the reason they move to San Diego’s unincorporated area is to be away from the intensity of city living. They want to be away from the noise, the hustle and bustle and surrounded by the beauty of our region. They certainly don’t want some of the worst... — Updated 9/2/2021
