Senior & Youth Programs

Are Senior & Youth Programs being properly funded?
- Non-Profits: Work with and include as many non-profit organizations devoted to the well-being of our residents.
- Local Business: Involve local businesses and corporations in aiding senior youth programs.
- City Events: Dedicate city events to aiding specific causes in the community.
The state has dramatically reduced funding for projects devoted to helping our elderly and youth programs. As a contracts negotiator I’ve been able to donate my time to Irvine’s Meals on Wheels (IMOW) and TRIPS programs. By assisting with writing grants for the IMOW program, we have been blessed by providing more funding for those less fortunate.
As mayor I plan on working with our city staff and members of local non-profits to reach out local companies in the area to assist the needs of these programs. As a cornerstone of our community these companies have utilized our business friendly policies. In return, I hope to increase their much-needed presence in the community.
