Rebuilding faith, Rebuilding community, & Restoring souls back to God!

A few of operations of Ministry

  • Public Safety:  Protection of our residents is always a top priority.   We need to rebuild faith and relations between community and law enforcement to ensure both the residents and the officers are safe.  We need to protect our residents and local businesses from unlawful activity,  unruly protesting, and/or or destruction of their property whether through looting, loitering, or other avenues.  We need to be able to protect our homeless, especially homeless women who are frequently raped on the streets.  We need to protect our children from things like Human trafficking.   Also protection of public health through proper handling of Covid-19 issues and any possible variants.
  • Covid-19:   It’s obvious that Covid may be around for awhile and possibly forever.  The current implementations of lockdowns, modified lockdowns,  vaccine isolations, etc cannot be maintained if we want to be a thriving community.  We need to unite in strategy to open schools, businesses, and community in its totality while exercising safety for public health.  
  • Homelessness:  It’s an obvious issue in almost every community in San Diego County. La Mesa doesn’t have shelters but we can partner with other locations.   I’ve been homeless and even lived at St Vincent De Paul Village for a while. I want to continue to work with organizations like  ECLTC, Homestart, and others. However, I also want to add focus toward homeless children and transitioning youth that are aging out of the system.  In addition, connect with programs that help with education and navigation so that the individuals getting assistance don’t stay on a merry-go-round or live in perpetual homelessness.  Lastly, we can’t address homelessness without addressing safety. I will always work for the protection of our residents, their property, and their personage.
  • Housing:  Affordable housing is an issue all across California.  Rents have increased at a much faster rate than salaries.  Many of our East County residents need to have roommates to avoid being on the streets.  Alot of residents use the majority of their monthly income to pay their rent.  Mortgages are no better.  Unless they are on Subsidized housing, our seniors that are low income or on SSI cannot afford to live by themselves.  Some are forced to live in situations with others that can open the door for them to be taken advantage of and/or even put them in harms way.   I was married to a man who was quadriplegic and my grandmother lives with me now. Both fit into the low income category and housing would have been an issue for them if they did not have family.  I want to find ways to have more affordable housing in La Mesa
  • Veterans:   We can’t speak of any of the aforementioned without thinking of our veterans.  More than 10% of east county, including our La Mesa, population are veterans and/or active duty.  We need to find ways to service homeless vets through partnerships with organizations like DAV and veterans village.  We are aware of the issues with veteran’s mental health, and many women and even some men face sexual trauma as well.  Also, we need to find ways to support their fight to maintain good mental health.  In addition we need to continue to build the La Mesa veterans commission so that it doesn’t just become another organization on the list purported to assist vets. 
  •  Education:  The public school system is its own state.  So I have no desire for the school district to acquiesce it’s authority to the municipality. However, Id love to form coalitions with the school district and city council concerning shared interests.  I’d love to have a cross-pollination of ideas & collaborations for the betterment of the children’s education and learning environment in our community.
 
 
 

About Me

Rebuilding faith, community, & public relations. Rebuilding La mesa!

Former owner and Operator of Island Juice where we served the best smoothies in San Diego. Also owned and operated College Area Fitness where women came to get fit. The businesses closed down in 2016 and I've been working in the Telecommunications industry since 2015.
Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life.
I was born and raised in New Jersey. Most of my family members still live there, including my mother who was also an entrepreneur. I was raised in the projects and faced many challenges growing up and overcame them all. Since I hated being cold, I had two choices; California or Florida. My ex-husband was in the Marine Corps and was previously stationed in Oceanside. Without knowing anyone there, we moved our family to San Diego 25 years ago. I've lived in East San Diego County 23 out of those 25 years. After remarrying, my new husband was injured in a car accident that left him quadriplegic and eventually led to his death. That lifestyle change led me to opening my own businesses in order to have the liberty I needed to take care of the needs of my family. I'm currently single and enjoy spending time with my family and four beautiful grandchildren.
