Primo Castro, Pomona City Council District 4 candidate

I want to improve the quality of life for those that work, play, and live within the great City of Pomona.

Our children are our future! Providing our children with extracurricular activities to participate in after school, on the weekend, and throughout the year is crucial for their development.

Increasing youth programs will keep our children active, healthy and engaged. In addition, providing programs for youth will discourage them from joining gangs, contributing to vandalism, and other activities that destroy our communities. By providing additional athletic spaces we can give our youth a place they will enjoy.

Public safety, a top priority as it is vital to ensure the safety of all our residents, our children, and our seniors. We must work in collaboration with our public safety officials to discuss the different needs each neighborhood requires.

Importantly, we must actively promote and work with our neighborhood watch organizations to preserve our neighborhoods and keep them safe.

Also, investing in Pomona’s local businesses is the key to our financial future! The city needs an economic plan that will benefit the community, and increase our tax base (revenue) to provide the resources Pomona needs to prosper.

By working in partnership with the business community we can develop a much needed shopping environment to fit the needs of the residents. Pomona needs leadership that will foster business development, create new jobs, and increase job retention.

Protecting our environment is an important aspect in providing our families and children with a healthy environment. With over 160,000 residents, we need to provide additional recreational park space for our children to play and grow.

Enforcement of all codes in the city is essential, as this shows that the community is concerned about the appearance of its neighborhoods. Maintaining prosperous neighborhoods is a priority for me and that is why we need to work together to address all issues. Continuing in the tradition of graffiti abatement, we must work closely to ensure that vandalism does not take hold of our city by working at the root of the problem.

Many of our roads, streets and other public spaces must be cared for and maintained. Our roads need to be re-paved; medians need careful attention to assist our efforts to beautify this city.

I ask for your support and VOTE on November 4th.
