Why I'm Running
Most recently, Dorothy completed the Citizens Academy training with the Downey Police Department. Combined with her experience as a member of Gangs Out of Downey (GOOD), for over 10 years, she will take the necessary steps to be proactive and prevent more crime.
Quality of Life
Dorothy will maintain high expectations for our parks, alleys and streets continuing to beautify our neighborhoods. She will improve our local SEAACA shelter promoting pet adoptions and neutering. A dog park and a community garden in District 3 will be one of her priorities.
Dorothy served on Measure “S” Oversight Committee which oversaw the improvements to public facilities and parks. She made sure the $50 million bond measure was spent properly. Dorothy will maintain a strong and balanced budget by keeping departments accountable.
City hall should be business friendly and provide excellent customer service to residents and new companies. We should also attract a variety of family-friendly businesses. Dorothy will review the current systems in place for permits and help to implement new digital processes to improve our methods.
