Working to Make Chula Vista a Safer, More Prosperous Community

Dear Chula Vista,

Thank you for your support and trust! I am honored to have been the top vote getter in the November 7th special election for City Attorney of Chula Vista. As we look towards the March runoff election, I look forward to earning your vote once again.

During my 20-year long career as a member of the Chula Vista City Attorney's Office, I worked hard to make City Hall more effective, hold city leaders accountable, support working families, advance public safety, and advocate for our first responders. In 2008, I was honored to be appointed by the Chula Vista City Council to serve as City Attorney. After helping the city navigate some incredibly difficult times, I stepped away from the City Attorney's office a few years ago to focus on family and continue my work representing cities and communities in the private sector.

I am running for City Attorney to bring experienced, tested leadership to the office and continue the work to make Chula Vista a safer, more prosperous community.

I would be honored to have your vote.

What does a City Attorney do?

The City Attorney is responsible for advising the Mayor, City Council, and City Staff on legal matters and representing the City in litigation. City Attorneys play a key role in the day-to-day operations and leadership of the City- helping police, fire, and city employees provide an exceptional level of service to our residents. Unlike many other cities, in Chula Vista we elect our City Attorney to make sure that the interests of our people, and not just political leaders, are represented in the legal decision-making of our City.
