"I believe we need to preserve our past for future generations while enriching our present by providing a safe and friendly environment for all. In addition, we need to plan for our future while never forgetting our roots. Downtown Sonora should be seen as a community that welcomes visitors while at the same time provides a safe environmental for all citizens. I believe monies should be used to enhance our city while at the same time saving historical value and providing fire and police protection for the citizens of Sonora. In addition, the City needs to plan for enviable future growth with a definite plan in mind in order to preserve the integrity of the City."
