• What's Being Done About the Homeless?

    Whenever I meet with groups or people in our community, the most frequently asked question I receive is, 'What is being done about homelessness?'

  • Helping Those in Crisis

    Homelessness/Behavioral Health (mental health and addiction) are connected, major issues of concern to the majority of San Diegans. 

  • Fire Safety

    The threat of a fire is constant, especially for those living in the unincorporated area of San Diego County. It's not a question of if but when the next major event will occur.

  • Drowning Prevention

    Swimming is a life skill that is not easily accessible to all residents throughout our communities. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 79% of children in households with incomes less than $50,000 have little-to-no swimming ability. In California, drowning is a leading cause of injury-related deaths among children under the age of five.

  • Thank You, North County

    What a day! I want to thank everyone who attended the State of the North County and made today so special.

    The reason an event like today was so meaningful is because we had so many of the people who make North County such a wonderful place, in the same room, at the same time. 


  • Help for Domestic Violence Victims

    A lot has happened during my first three years on the Board of Supervisors, but there is nothing that I’m prouder to be a part of than the Family Justice Center, coming to San Marcos.

  • AG Pass

    At our last Board of Supervisors meeting, I brought forth an item directing County staff to explore the creation of an "Agriculture Pass". An Ag Pass can provide limited access during a wildfire or emergency to restricted areas in order to care for agriculture assets such as feeding animals, transporting livestock, and irrigating valuable crops.

  • Gas Tax Update

    I wanted to give you the latest news as gas prices continue to rise across San Diego County. At Tuesday's Board of Supervisors meeting, Supervisor Anderson and I initiated action, unanimously approved by the Board, to send a letter to State lawmakers for a one-year suspension of the state gas tax.

  • Lowering Electricity Rates

    Last week, I sent a letter to Governor Newsom and the California Public Utilities Commission to immediately implement measures to alleviate rising energy costs.
