20-Second Tuesday Week 3: Regional Housing Needs Assessment

SANDAG has mandated more than 900 new housing units be built in Coronado over the next decade in its RHNA. The current city council has vigorously fought this decision, but its appeal has been denied. Where do you stand on this issue?

40-Second Tuesday Week 4: The Pandemic

40-Second Tuesday Week 5: Racial Bias & Lack of Diversity

What specific skills and experience make you uniquely qualified to serve on the City Council?
