When I was first elected to the City Council in 2006, I pledged to stay connected to the community in order to better understand and address its needs. On my first day in office, I created “Public Office Hours” Every month on the first Monday of the month at 6PM I held a public meeting somewhere in Chula Vista. I held over 100 public meeting in my eight years as a councilman and I pledge to do the same again if elected.

I believe elected officials need to be on the ground, in the community listening and responding to neighbourhood problems. These meetings are one good way to stay grounded.

City of Chula Vista law permits only personal contributions and limits contributions to $320 per individual for the primary election and another $320 for the general election. A couple may contribute $640 per election per couple from a joint account if both parties sign the check, credit card authorization form, or an accompanying letter. Contributions from businesses and other types of “organizations” are prohibited. City law requires that you provide your name, address (no P.O. box), occupation and employer with your contribution. The campaign may only accept cash contributions of $99 or less. Contributions are only allowed from US citizens and resident aliens. Political contributions are not tax deductible.
