Q: If you win, how would that be good for Conejo Valley families?
A: I will work hard to restore conservative values that are most important to families in our community. Primarily, I will ensure that the homeless crisis, which has increased crime and vagrancy in our communities, is immediately addressed with a stern focus on the criminal vagrant element, which has permeated Ventura County. Additionally, families must be able to afford living in California. We have a tax and spend government that is not accountable to the taxpayers anymore. We need to better understand the use of our tax dollars and work to reduce taxes so that families, especially young families can continue to afford living in CA.
