Meet Lori

My husband, Chavares, and I raised our family here, and we love Suisun City. Our future is truly brimming with possibility. With direction, focus, and some investment, we can be a community that entices our kids to come home to begin their families.

You first elected me to Suisun City Council six years ago, and I appreciate the partnership you’ve offered. I ran for Council because I believed and you did as well that we needed a Fresh Voice on the Council. Already our Council has become more functional, responsive, and focused — but there’s still a long way to go. We need more than a Fresh Voice, we need a Fresh Vision!

Beautiful, affordable, centrally-located, and safe, Suisun City has been Solano County’s best-kept-secret for decades. But we have more to offer. It’s time to get beyond the status quo. We’re packed with history, charm, and tremendous potential. Now that we’re more stable, it’s time to envision how we blossom into more than just a bedroom community.

My Priorities

Enhance the QUALITY OF LIFE of Suisun City residents by fixing roads, relieving local traffic congestions, increasing City amenities, and the variety of businesses and services, and cultivating community connections

Enhance ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT through increasing the competitiveness of Suisun City compared to the surrounding region while attracting appropriately sized businesses and further developing a strong and diverse economic base.

Enhance COMMUNITY SAFETY by promoting a responsive public safety system that includes civic partnerships, community involvement and public education while retaining qualified and experienced police officers and firefighters.

The last six years have been an amazing journey. We’ve made great strides, but there’s clearly more to get done. I look forward to continuing to work together to realize Suisun City’s potential.

Together, let's shape Suisun City's future. I would appreciate your ongoing partnership and vote for Mayor to bring a Fresh Vision to Suisun City.

Thank you!
