Homelessness and Affordable Housing

We simply cannot allow any more Angelenos to live  and die on our streets. This is a humanitarian crisis and a public health crisis. In one of the wealthiest cities in the world we really need to look at why this is happening. Why this issue has not been able to be solved. This  issue has gotten worse ever year as the leaders of our city keep throwing money at the issue and Not solving it. I would like to call for a moratorium on luxury building  for one year and build only. Build housing that is affordable and that is green and regenerative in its design and building material. I also am not taking money from developers so I will stay true to the people and not special interest, which is one of the causes of this homeless and housing crisis. We need to also take care of our mentally ill and addicted friends on the street and build facilities to take care of them. Reagan closed all those facilities so many  years ago; why haven’t we opened them again?

Climate Emergency

We are in a Climate Emergency and we need all hands on deck! People, planet, animals. We are all interconnected and therefore must take collective action NOW. Our survival depends on our collective action to implement long-term solutions. Everything we build must be concurrent with our climate crisis. We must take collective action to protect our planet for ourselves, our children, and generations to come. Focus on moving our city to electrification and 100% Clean and renewable energy. Plant more trees. More community gardens. Reorganize and fix our recycling centers that now are closed. Our recycling g waste gets dumped Into landfills, most of our waste ends up in the ocean. Ban plastic. More EV charging stations. Close oil and gas fields. Educate and inspire our communities on the Climate Emergency so we all can take action and move forward together in to the green Dream future. Sustainable living starts in our neighborhoods.

Animal Welfare

We are the ONLY campaign with an animal welfare platform. Together, we can transform Los Angeles into a  100% NO KILL city. Clean up our shelter system, which is mot only terrible for the animals but a drain on the taxpayer, eventually closing most of the shelters down. This is our planet and theirs too. Education and advocacy on animal welfare will ensure animals are protected under the law whilst saving lives and elevating our community. Enforcing spaying and neutering laws.  Offering free services to those who have economic challenges. Inspiring people to always adopt rather than shop. If people dump dogs at the shelter they will be fined unless  economic challenges. We cannot tolerate any longer people who just dump animals for the city to take care of.

This platform also includes the wildlife that we share our city with: protecting our natural habitats, supporting  and advocating for wildlife corridors, not allowing development in our sacred spaces that shall remain a habitat for our animals that we share this planet with.

Protect Small Businesses

The reopening of California calls for protection of small businesses to be able to prosper and thrive post-pandemic. We need to defend COVID-19 relief for ALL. Creating a Small Business Coalition will provide the support and space for small business owners to synergize and collaborate as residents of District 5 and support each other.
