Economic Vitality

I believe it takes hands on work on the part of an elected representative to keep jobs here and bring new jobs to our area. My track record shows results, and I will continue that same effort for the County.

My Proven Leadership in Economics: 

* Despite business challenges that face all Cities in our Country I have worked tirelessly to retain local companies and assist with attracting new companies to our area. Our current vacancies are at an all time low. I will continue that same practice for Ventura County working to attract high paying jobs for our residents.

* I wrote the only Economic Development Plan ever adopted for the City of Simi Valley by a Council Member. The Plan was adopted unanimously by the City Council and written up in the Pacific Coast Business Times editorial stating "Now Simi Valley seems to have leapfrogged past many communities with a clearly written focused economic roadmap for the future." (click to see the review) . The plan includes working with the local Chamber of Commerce to maximize outreach to current and potential businesses among many other important ongoing strategies.
