Violent crime is on the rise. We're seeing criminals coming here from Oakland and Hayward. Fremont is at a critical point - we need to institute a zero tolerance for crime. As a retired 29-year Fremont police officer and a 32-year resident, I want to use my skills to serve you on the City Council.
As your City Councilmember, I will institute a "zero tolerance" for crime and will identify funding sources to hire more officers. We need a strong truancy ordinance to keep kids in school and out of trouble. I will work with District Attorney Nancy O'Malley to prosecute parents who habitually allow kids to cut school. Residents need to feel safe, especially at night. I am organizing "Volunteer Safety Officers" at grocery stores to safely walk shoppers to their cars at night.
I am honored to be supported by the Fremont Police Association and would be honored to earn your support. Thank you.
