My Top 3 Priorities

  • Economic development and shifting Atascadero's reputation toward being truly business friendly.
  • I want to explore and leverage all pre-existing revenue streams available to the city, without additional taxes.
  • Developing a real strategy and regional solution to help mitigate the homelessness crisis in Atascadero.

Our city is struggling with its ability to accomplish the basics or listen to its own people. Atascadero maintains a notorious reputation for being difficult to work with, scaring away business and good-paying jobs from our community. We deserve a business-friendly Atascadero, with leadership that is willing to listen and take appropriate action, not bureaucrats. We deserve a Stronger Atascadero and that is what Josh will deliver.
