School Office Manager

Carmen, her husband, and daughters are long-time residents of Escondido. As a family, they are dedicated to a thriving Escondido. Carmen has been recognized for her extensive civic volunteerism, including past service on the Police Chief's Advisory Team and the Neighborhood Healthcare Board.

She is passionate about making public safety more effective, more accountable and healing the deep and unnecessary wounds that have diminished the reputation of Escondido, eroded its tax base, and threatened jobs.

Carmen wants a vibrant Escondido. She supports: 1) attracting new businesses to create new jobs, 2) using smart technology to improve traffic flow, 3) enhancing public safety, 4) supporting our library, and 5) restoring the image of Escondido as a welcoming community that is congenial to small businesses, their workers, and our regional clients and shoppers.

Carmen is a fiscal conservative who will insist on gaining control of city management salaries and preventing pre-retirement "spiking" that escalates pension costs. It is time to reverse the failing leadership tactics that cynically divide our beautiful community.
