When I was elected in 2016, I promised to restore honesty, integrity and transparency to the Mayor’s office. I have dedicated myself full-time to these promises and we have made tremendous progress. We made important administrative changes and cultivated a culture of service at city hall. I have challenged residents to take ownership of our community, and you have taken initiative to create positive change. In addition, I led many efforts to improve Pomona, with real results. These include:
Securing funding to extend Metro Gold Line Light Rail to Pomona, as Chair of the Construction Authority
Convening Pomona’s COVID-19 Action Committee to provide much needed assistance to residents and businesses during the pandemic
Attracting millions of dollars of investment in commercial, hotel, and housing development
Obtaining funding for public improvements, including the new Phil and Nell Soto Park
Founding Pomona Beautiful, a grass-roots revitalization effort to clean up our city
Moving forward, we will continue with what we have started. This community is full of people who care and want to do their part to benefit the city and help others. Together, we can face any crisis and build a better future. I ask for your vote on November 3rd.
