What do you think are the biggest issues facing Huntington Beach right now? Jobs and economy, balanced municipal budget, unfunded liabilities
What is one decision in the last year the City Council got right and why would you have supported it? Abandoning the plan to install red light scam-eras on Beach Boulevard. I always support the small government, liberty-leaning solutions.
What is one decision in the last year the City Council got wrong, or partially wrong, and why would you have voted differently? The costly appeal of the judge's ruling on the senior center debacle. What a grand waste of taxpayers money.
