Vision for the City


Let’s work together to ensure that Stockton leads the way in innovation. Its time that we invest and explore expanding opportunities such as green technology, sustainable energy, economic development and investing in technology to improve city services. Stockton is long overdue in ensuring people have livable wages, unionization, community gardening and investing in small businesses. Residents deserve to be home with their families, instead of long commute times or driving across the Altamont. This community should not have to experience the inconvenience and hassle of driving outside the district to buy fresh fruits or vegetables. Together, let’s think outside the box and improve access to retail, market, stores, and entertainment.


Its time that we inspire our communities and instill hope and empowerment. Together we can inspire youth, neighbors, stakeholders, and communities to work alongside one another for the wellbeing of our city. Stockton must move forward collectively with the common interest of the people in perspective. Together we can create collaborative sustainable interest while ensuring the needs of the community remain a priority every day in the city. Its time to inspire and create more community leaders who will work together for the best interest of the community.


It is time that we begin to reassess local governance and local policies to ensure that we remain inclusive and equity is available to all. Communities should never feel powerless, or if they do not have a voice, it’s time to restore hope. We must ensure that we are distributing power and economic resources to community members and our neighborhoods throughout the city. Its time to ensure that our neighborhoods have a voice and heal from the trauma of marginalization. Let’s change our “must” to “should” and implement real-time solutions.
