The City's Attorney - Protecting all of San Diego

As Chief Deputy City Attorney, my job really is to protect us.

In the City Attorney’s office, we forced corporate polluters to pay millions to clean up San Diego Bay.

I’ve protected taxpayers by taking on fraud and rooting out millions of dollars in waste at City Hall.

I wrote the law to crack down on city contractors ripping off taxpayers.

I’ve spent my legal career fighting for our neighborhoods, standing up for ordinary people and taking on fraud, corruption and polluters.

As City Attorney, I’ll put my proven record to work protecting all of San Diego:

  • Protect Seniors and Kids by cracking down on the fraud and abuse that targets our most vulnerable citizens.
  • Protect Our Environment by holding corporate polluters accountable.
  • Protect Taxpayers by stopping fraud and waste at City Hall and enforcing competitive bidding on all city contracts.
  • Enforce The Law. No special deals for special interests. No favors.

It has been a privilege to serve San Diego as Chief Deputy City Attorney and as Senior Deputy County Counsel, where I advised the Sheriff and District Attorney and fought to track down perpetrators of elder abuse.

It would be my honor to put my experience and proven record to work as San Diego’s next City Attorney.
