I am the only City Council candidate who is a taxpayer advocate. As a taxpayer advocate, I have worked over the past 14 years to protect families, seniors and business owners from paying higher taxes disguised as fees. I have championed your constitutional right to vote on taxes.
Upland currently has a serious budget deficit resulting in severe cuts. Much of this can be attributed to a weak economic condition, but the real culprit is the city has been spending more than it brings in. We need to provide a reasonable balance of services with available funds.
I bring extensive business management experience to the City council position. I am a logistics manager for a major global corporation and responsible for multi-million dollar budgets, staffing and contract administration. I am prepared to immediately step up to the plate to work with the city’s managers in resolving Upland’s many challenges.
I want to use my business management and taxpayer advocacy experience to develop solutions to the problems we are facing so the City of Gracious Living we love can move forward.
The Daily Bulletin on several occasions has called me a longtime “city watchdog.” I pledge to continue to live up to my reputation.
I promise to be your taxpayer advocate to demand transparency and accountability at City Hall.
