Candidate Statements

Occupation: Millbrae City Councilmember/Budget Analyst

Age: 30

Education and Qualifications:

I was elected to the Millbrae City Council in 2013 and served as Mayor last year. As a lifelong Millbrae resident, I am blessed to have been shaped by a caring community. I want to ensure that our city stays that way for generations to come, as my wife Amy and I raise a family here.

My top priority is rebuilding the Recreation Center tragically destroyed by fire. I have worked closely with residents to incorporate desired elements into the new plans. The City is assembling the funding package needed to build a modern center, restoring youth and senior programs.

Responsibly planned redevelopment near the transit center is key to attracting businesses, providing critical income to strengthen public safety services and modernize our infrastructure. I negotiated with developers to ensure that the projects benefit Millbrae residents, increasing revenues and Recreation Center funding while creating jobs and affordable housing.

I earned a Master's Degree in Public Policy from University of California, Berkeley and work as a Budget Analyst for the City and County of San Francisco. I use that analytical lens to assess Millbrae's services and prevent wasteful spending. I will continue working hard to preserve Millbrae as a great place to live.

I respectfully ask for your vote.
