Why Vote Rita Ramirez for Change? We need to be prepared to enhance the quality of life and meet the diverse needs of our community. These are four reasons why I seek the office of Victorville City Council:
1) Establishment of a High Desert State University. It will enhance quality of life, attract companies, provide greater opportunities, and bring greater salaries. This is only possible with educated professionals with higher degrees.
2) Restore and renovate Historic Old Town as Victorville’s Center of Tourism: small businesses, restaurants, art and antique shops, including Bed and Breakfast hotels. This will bring profitable businesses and jobs, back again to downtown.
3) Support and Save Green Tree Golf Course for its residents. Closure will affect 1,162 homes with property value of $120, 620,791 million and a loss of $1,206,207 million in taxes. We will find options to save it, for it affects our entire city.
4) Homelessness is a condition, not a disease. It has become an uncontrollable issue. Partnership of the city, businesses, and non-profits need to formulate a master plan for housing, medical and educational services to resolve homelessness.
