As your councilman since 2008, I have proudly championed many successful projects improving Carlsbad residents’ quality of life while increasing the city’s revenue base.

Already completed and open are the Regal Movie Theater and 24 Hour Fitness in Carlsbad. The opening of the Alga Norte Park and Pools now provides our local swim teams a place to practice and creates recreational opportunities for all ages. Carlsbad now uses modern traffic signal technology keeping traffic flowing effectively through our streets and intersections. Spending less time in traffic and emitting fewer pollutants into the air means a better quality of life for all of us. I am proud to have supported the Desalination Project which now produces 50 million gallons of fresh drinking water daily. Additionally, the operators of the desalination have assumed responsibility as the Agua Hedionda Lagoon’s steward, providing long term maintenance and dredging. I look forward to working with Brookfield, the new owners of The Shoppes at Carlsbad on renovation plans.

Having had such a productive and rewarding experience as your steward, I am running for reelection in November 2016 and asking for your support. As your councilman, I want to continue to support the revitalization of the Carlsbad Village as well as preserve open space and maintain our beaches for the enjoyment of future generations. During our city’s continuing development and improvements, I will continue to use my business experience and public service background to maintain Carlsbad’s financial strength and security.
