Issues & Concerns

Many important issues divide our community and all too often elected leaders are judged by their positions. I want to be open and transparent with the community on how I want to see these important issues resolved and where I stand.

Ridgecrest Casino Project

The Council voted to approve the MSA in 2016 and the casino project is moving forward. I originally preferred a different location in the city, but revisiting the issue isn’t productive for our community. I support the City following through on its legally binding commitments and look forward to welcoming new economic and entertainment opportunities for Ridgecrest.

Medical Marijuana

I believe that the science has demonstrated a clear benefit for medicinal marijuana and that voters have approved both the medical and recreational use of marijuana as legal in California. Thus, I believe that Cannabis as a business should be treated in the same manner as any other organically produced good (i.e. farming) with appropriate taxation and regulation to protect society. To extend that argument further, I believe that actions to reduce the business opportunities in our community is not in the best economic interests of the community and thus I would support lifting the ban on medical and recreational marijuana business both in the county and city.
