We must be ready to assist future business and job creation.  I support a City directive to actively partner with
businesses, big and small, who want to come to our community.  I truly believe that we need to prepare now to 
take advantage of future opportunities.  Type your paragraph here.

This chart is based upon information gleaned off of internet searches of public information posted by governmental entities.  Column 4 is the per capita expenditure for police services; Column 6 is the per capita expenditure for fire services; and Column 7 is the total per capita expenditure based upon the addition of Coumn 4 and Column 6.  The number in () reflect the rank order of local cities in public safety spending with 1 being the most per capita and 9 being the least per capita in terms of expenditure.

We need robust and comprehensive public safety programs.  Our City's police department must return to the successful neighborhood friendly Community Oriented Policing strategies.  I will continue to push for stronger support of the fire and police departments to protect and serve our businesses and diverse citizenry.

 Our City's finances must be in order.  I know the City has the capacity to be more efficient.  I will make sure we are taking full advantage of municipal assets, keeping money and jobs in Oxnard.

We are all possibly facing the most challenging times in our lives.  I feel that I have a responsibility to help our community by seeking election to Oxnard's Council District 4.  I will continue working to provide a commonsense approach to tackle our financial recovery, create more business and job opportunities and strengthen public safety.
