Core Values

Our Core Values


Every Team Sandoval meeting begins with re-centering on the Core Values that we determined together. These values govern our campaign, as well as Tim’s service in office, and the service of his commissioners.

  • Transparency 
    Externally and internally, we never want to withhold information or avoid inviting input on a decision.
  • Integrity
    We want to be consistent with who we say we are in all areas, not compartmentalizing these values to just certain areas of behavior.
  • Honesty
    We strive to be truthful in what we communicate and follow through with our commitments.
  • Accountability 
    We need to hold each other accountable to our common values, and we welcome correction.
  • Community Input and Engagement 
    We are stronger when more people are engaged and contributing. We want everyone engaged in the future of Pomona, and pursuing this is what makes us a “grass-roots” movement.
  • Hope/Optimism
    We are hopeful and optimistic for everyone– we acknowledge and try to understand problems because we truly believe we can find solutions that will make Pomona better.
  • People First
    Families and individuals are important to us– we value the well-being of the people of our community.
  • Regenerative Community
    As opposed to a “stuck community”we want to practice being a community with a sense of belonging, a sense of possibility, a sense of movement, a sense of self-worth.
  • Fairness and Respect
    We don’t treat anyone differently because of their views, heritage, status or wealth.
  • An Attitude of Service

    Leadership begins and ends with service.

  • Love and Empathy

    We are driven by genuine compassion and concern for our community.
