• Suicide Prevention

    We are all too familiar with the devastating impact of suicide, as it has touched the lives of so many in our community. In 2021, San Diego County alone witnessed 364 deaths by suicide, a stark reminder of the urgency and importance of enhanced suicide prevention efforts.

  • The Road to Socialism

    As a country, we must have borders and ensure that those entering the United States do so orderly and humanely.

  • The Failures of Housing First

    Why are we seeing more and more homeless people on the streets? It's a question every San Diegan is asking themselves. Despite billions of dollars being spent, why is the problem only worsening? One of the biggest reasons is the State's approach, Housing First.
