homelessness

El Cajon deserves a Councilmember who makes every citizen feel safe. That’s why Gary implemented a successful plan to combat homelessness in our city. Gary secured federal grants to move over 5,000 people off the streets and into housing. El Cajon’s unsheltered homeless population has dropped 11% since last year.

public safety

Gary led the fight to get tobacco, drugs, and alcohol out of the hands of our children. When Gary's award-winning plan was implemented, under-age alcohol possession dropped by 93%. Gary received commendation from Communities Against Substance Abuse and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

economic development

In partnership with Live Nation, the world’s largest concert promoter, Gary planned the renovation and reopening of the Performing Arts Center, which will draw thousands of customers to local businesses. Gary's policies brought the Courtyard Marriott Hotel and the Hampton Inn to El Cajon, which beautify our city and provide revenue for public safety.

balanced budget

Gary never forgets to protect your hard-earned taxpayer dollars. That's why El Cajon holds $40 million in reserves, three times that of most cities our size. Through Heartland Fire Authority, Gary oversaw the consolidation of regional fire management. This policy has saved taxpayers millions of dollars and upgraded El Cajon’s fire service rating to the top 5% in the nation – lowering your insurance costs.
