I’m running for Riverside County Treasurer – Tax Collector, because I feel passionate about improving Riverside County. First and foremost, I want to continue to make sure that our county’s money is safe. I want to increase accountability for our county’s investments. The county’s investments lost just under $32 million in value in January of 2018 without one word to explain why.  We can all understand that investments have their ups and downs, but there should be an explanation.  I also want the treasurer’s reports to be more accessible.  I have an MBA from Boston University, so I have no problem interpreting the financial jargon and acronyms.  I don’t think the taxpayers of Riverside County should require the same in order to understand what’s happening with our money.

 I was in the US Air Force for 12 years and acquired leadership training, experience and skills, which has helped me become accustomed to working within government bureaucracy. Over the years I have been an avid reader and genuinely enjoy reading economic and financial books. I feel confident, and sure that I will make a good Treasurer – Tax Collector. Donating to this campaign will help to bring about the change Riverside County needs.
