Mike On The Issues
As your Orange County Supervisor, I’ll fight to stop all new County taxes, pay down County debt, make County services more efficient, and attract private-sector jobs. As a City Councilman, I’ve protected taxpayer money by setting aside extra money in interest-bearing trust to pay down pension liability, balanced the budget, sold off unneeded City assets, attracted private sector jobs, reduced bureaucratic red tape, and held town halls on financial issues.
As your Orange County Supervisor, I’ll work with the Sheriff’s Department and Fire Authority to improve public safety, fight against sober living homes and needle exchanges, and reduce the homeless epidemic. As a City Councilman, I’ve improved the safety of our residents, businesses, and visitors by adding new firefighting vehicles, and engaged the community by holding town halls on public safety.
As your Orange County Supervisor, I’ll battle Sacramento mandates that prevent our communities from implementing local public safety solutions, and I’ll fight to ensure decisions about the future of our communities are decided locally not in Sacramento. As a City Councilman, I’ve successfully fought Sacramento mandates that would block law enforcement from doing their jobs, and I’ve successfully fought against efforts to empower Sacramento to impose housing decisions on local communities.
