My Top 3 Priorities

  • AB-1 declares the housing shortage is a State Emergency and outlines mandatory zoning reforms for the State of California to ensure that housing supply keeps up with demand. ​
  • AB-2 declares the Homeless Crisis a State of Emergency and outlines state mandated processes and procedures to address homelessness; including funding for mental health facilities and treatment programs.
  • The digital infrastructure of the future is not going to be fully realized if we don't create the hard infrastructure to foster that growth; roads, bridges, tunnels, desalinization plants, trains, highways, schools and public places.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

As a real estate developer, I know that supply and demand is at the core of the housing and homeless crisis’. The solution is that we need to build more. We can no longer let the NIMBY’s force policy decisions that cater to equity-rich single-family homeowners at the expense of the rest of us. The time has come to build more homes for Californians for all economic levels. The only way to do that is to ensure that zoning is a commonsense tool rather than a barrier to stop homebuilding. Are you ready to help create more home availability and prices that reflect a healthy market? 

The homeless crisis is heartbreaking and frustrating because we have thrown so much money at the problem with little to show for it. Mental health problems, including addiction, are rampant in the chronic homeless population; how can an individual with severe problems like this make sound decisions to get help? They can’t. As a society, we need to invest in mental health facilities and give these individuals a real choice to start a new life rather than bandaging the problem and hoping that it’ll go away. 

Housing and homelessness are two problems we can fix if we look at the data and follow the money. I believe we need to get to work pushing bold solutions and not letting the naysayers control the debate.
