We did it! When the dust settled, the hard work of the community more than doubled the turn out for the previous Treasurers election.
The outpouring from the community over the last few months was truly humbling. Volunteers made it happen; from graphic design, text banking, and even those just taking a moment to chat about the election with a neighbor in the super market. To everyone that worked toward this victory,
This is just the beginning.
For those who have not yet given, contributions to the campaign are still being accepted and are greatly appreciated (see more info on the 'Get Involved' tab). For me, it's time to get to work.
I took my oath of office July 5th, and I am already delving into the work of Treasurer. As one of only two elected officials representing the entirety of Covina, I look forward to making sure residents receive no less than what they deserve from their local government.
As a third generation Covina resident, I know how exceptional this city is. I understand how special the people who live here are. Most importantly I want to put in the work to ensure city finances are secure for future generations.
With my background in Business Administration, I understand the important oversight role of City Treasurer. Mismanagement or under-performance of funds results in higher taxes and reduced services for residents. I will work to put the city on secure financial ground.
I understand how investments speak to who we are. To protect our city funds, we need to divest from dying fossil fuel industry. Instead investing in growth funds comprised of tomorrow’s green technologies. Not just for the environment, but for financial stewardship.
Most importantly, I value the importance of public transparency. I will work tirelessly so city finances are easily accessible and understandable by the public.
