Around Whittier

Last year the voters of Whittier passed Proposition W which created four Council districts and established a Mayor position which would be elected city-wide. It is everyone’s hope that this new system will provide greater attention to neighborhoods by the district councilmembers, and still keep the best interests of the whole city in mind with a directly elected Mayor. This arrangement was designed to prevent the political splintering and dysfunction that has occurred in other cities with district only elections. Whittier’s success in this new leadership structure will depend on how well the new Mayor and Councilmembers work together and I want the plan to succeed!

Supporting the Whittier Community

Our City is more diverse than ever. We have new economic challenges and we all want to retain the small town values that brought us to Whittier in the first place.We need to keep our city economically competitive and we need to protect our residential neighborhoods. We need more local jobs and businesses and we need more housing options. We need to maintain public safety and we need to keep our City Government decisions open and transparent to our residents.

Serving the City of Whittier

All of those things are possible if our City leaders stay focused on the best interests of the entire City. How successfully we transition from the old form of city government to the new form will determine how well we achieve those goals. I believe in teamwork. I want to be a Mayor for all of Whittier!
