It takes all villages to make a complete city, yet often too many of our communities are shortchanged. I am asking to serve as your 9th District City Council Representative because together we can change that. I grew up an Army brat traveling the world and learning different languages and cultures. I speak fluent Italian and I am proficient in Spanish. I have seen much of the world, and very little compares to our great city. I want to grow our District and our city for all San Diegans. I understand the different challenges facing our district because I have lived here while attending San Diego State University where I earned my degree in biology, and later earning my law degree at California Western School of Law. As your Councilman I offer a broad perspective informed by real world experiences. Working and volunteering throughout our district has given me the opportunity to meet and help so many diverse groups, businesses and individuals.
I am running to take on the serious issues and difficult work that have been “deferred” or neglected in too many of our neighborhoods. City Hall needs to be responsive, productive and accountable to everyone. And you deserve a representative who will act decisively and advance policies that are truly inclusive of all districts. I will bring my passion and devotion to public service and re-energize our City Council. I look forward to meeting you in person and directly earning your support.
