CHRIS ON THE ISSUES
As a career attorney and prosecutor in the Department of Homeland Security, Chris has put partisanship aside to find common-sense solutions to the problems facing our government.
Chris will bring needed emergency preparedness experience to our city as we deal with the current public health and economic crisis.
Jobs & the Economy
Chris will work to rebuild our local economy, fighting to support San Clemente’s small businesses and attract new companies to our city. He will cut unnecessary red tape, correct inefficiencies in our city’s departments, and focus city resources on improving our financial security. He’ll also fight for tax relief for middle class families and small businesses, and will invest in the 21st-century workforce to ensure no one is left behind. He will investigate the TCA’s effect on city finances and ensure there will never be a toll road through San Clemente.
Chris made the safety of our country his top priority as a federal prosecutor and Homeland Security attorney. He knows that there is nothing more important than the safety of our communities and our families. He’ll hold our law enforcement agencies accountable while also making sure they have the resources and appropriate training they need to keep our communities safe. He will tackle the issue of homelessness while getting our local law enforcement out of the business of mental health care and drug abuse management, so they can focus on crime prevention.
Chris believes that climate change is real, and he’ll support reasonable and effective measures to reduce greenhouse gases, ensure cleaner air and water, and protect our coastline and oceans. To that end, Chris will fight to protect our community from the growing threat of wildfires and keep our watershed free of dangerous pollutants. He'll focus on incentives and programs to bring a cleaner environment and create green jobs. He is also committed to ensuring the planned dismantling of the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant happens in a clean, safe and efficient manner.
