Santa Clarita’s City Council election takes place in April of every even numbered year. The elected City council members serve as our governing body that guides the progress of Santa Clarita into the future, and each council member serves four-year terms. The City Council is responsible for the creation of policies, which are expressed through the passage of ordinances, resolutions and motions. Through the City Manager and City Attorney, the Council supervises and provides guidance for the activities of the City. The following 13 candidates will be running for the three councilmember spots available this election.
Question 1: Name one thing you would do as an elected official to improve Santa Clarita?
Question 2: Describe three of your specific qualities and/or experiences that you believe would be assets to the Council.
A: I’m passionate about several issues. Choosing only one isn’t possible so here are my top three. 1. Actively attract new businesses and jobs to the city by streamlining business requirements. 2. Enhance public safety. We have situations in Santa Clarita that we must control so we need a Vice Unit and build a Sheriff substation in the Canyon Country/Newhall area. 3. Build a new Senior Center to include more programs for seniors and their families

A: I would seek to improve school safety. The crossing guard budget is 54,000, not enough. Many schools do not have crossing guards that are needed and have been requested for many years. I don’t want Santa Clarita to be like L.A. and LAUSD. Because of fiscal restraints, they admit they don’t have enough crossing guards. Now that a mother of a student was killed, they will look into increasing the budget. Lets be proactive instead of reactive.

A: My main emphasis is to maintain the high quality of living here by increasing safety programs by partnering with law enforcement agencies, by increasing after-school programs, by implementing a stronger “neighborhood watch” program, by revitalizing the neglected part of our city, by improving business development programs, among others. I want our city to be the first technologically advanced “Smart”. I will devote my time enhancing outreach programs such as building another senior center and finally, I will increase diversity integration.
A: Give our people something to do, for employment and enjoyment. Our city must follow the growing cities because; we caught up to 2007 after seven years.
A: I want to re-establish a common sense type of government to the City Council. This means making every decision specifically based on how it would preserve or improve the quality of life for the people who currently live in Santa Clarita-not the developers, or big business. I’ll not just listen to the public, but reach out to them so that they will feel that their government needs and concerns are being met.
