Fiscal Policy

Prudent management of your tax dollars is at the top of my priority list. I do not believe in raising taxes. Maintaining a balanced budget and prudent reserves is the job of the Board of Supervisors. My plan is to continue the things that are working well at the County level and discontinue things that do not work with a thorough audit to eliminate waste.

My Proven Leadership:

* I originated the concept for a Citizen's Fiscal Projection Advisory Committee. The plan was adopted unanimously by the City Council. The committee was comprised of local residents at the grass roots level to provide feedback and ensure transparency on the City budget.

* The City of Simi Valley's Standard and Poor's credit rating was upgraded to AAA during my tenure as Mayor.

* The City of Simi Valley is producing more work with less staff increasing efficiency of the overall operation.
