We Are the People of
Our City’s diversity is our greatest asset, and we have strength in our numbers.
Change the Role of Police
Create a 311 number for mental health emergencies and transfer mental health calls from 911 and into the hands of trained counselors and social service workers. Decriminalize homelessness and addiction by eliminating the "court" system to obtain city services and not require interaction with the legal system. Create a civilian-led oversight committee to ensure increased transparency and accountability to re-build community trust of the police force.
Have City Term Limits
Revoke Measure BBB and restore term limits to Long Beach City Hall so no leadership is comfortable in power to serve themselves. We serve the people. Period.
Expand Film Opportunities
Develop a film office to streamline the work permit process and encourage filming in Long Beach. Provide resources to independent filmmakers and students.
Prioritize LBC Businesses
Require competitive bids for all city funded projects and place priority on Long Beach businesses. Provide for a “bump” up in cost of 10% for Long Beach businesses before allowing non-Long Beach companies to be awarded contracts.
