For many years San Gabriel resident's complained about the number of massage parlors in the city. Unfortunately, all we could do was complain. State law prevented the Council from taking zoning or other regulatory action.
As a Council Member, I could not sit back and stay silent. I had to advocate for the residents to restore local control. I made many trips to Sacramento, sent hundreds of emails, and had dozens of phone calls with Legislators from all corners of the State.
After year's of hard work from Council Member's from all over the state, we were able to wrest back local control. Legislative Advocacy
San Gabriel went from a peak of 54 licensed massage parlors down to under 20.
I will continue to advocate for the resident's on all quality of life issues. I don't give up!
