CHULA VISTA FORWARD: OUR DREAM CITY
Our community deserves to dream big with all of us coming together like never before in order to leave a lasting legacy for future generations. With the work done before us by many of our good leaders to bring us a world-class bayfront, plans for a 4 year university, and a new urban community, we are poised to present a vision of unity to the rest of the state, the country, and the world that Chula Vista is the place to be. Let’s demand attention to show that Chula Vista is a destination where more business is welcome for more jobs, small business is thriving, the old is revitalized, and creativity through arts and culture challenges the limits of possibility. Let’s keep our standards and expectations high for the best schools and community programs, we remain one of the nation’s safest cities to raise a family, we utilize our rich diversity to work together and that we inspire those around us to be part of a greater vision.
The time is now that we invest in leaders that think creatively in changing times, think differently than at the level of what brought us the challenges we face today, believe in something greater than themselves, and have the foresight to envision something beyond instant gratification. With great leaders to inspire us, we can as a community, create our dream city.
The work ethic inspired by my immigrant parents to succeed in America, and my father’s selflessness to serve our country, are qualities I don’t take for granted. I believe that we’re indebted to the community that gives us the resources to succeed locally and worldwide. I believe in community before self and that our elected officials are called to work for and with our community. I believe in civic engagement for the betterment of the community, while energizing our youth to get involved and invest in their community early.
My experiences as a nonprofit director, city commissioner, business owner, teacher, worldwide performer, and consummate community volunteer, bless me with great perspective and understanding of how all components of the city can work together to creatively utilize all of its resources. I’m ready to serve with our community to become the next Chula Vista City Council Member to bring Chula Vista Forward to make this our dream city.
