Keep Public Safety the City’s #1 Priority

“It is incredibly important to support law enforcement both in word and in spending. Lake Elsinore residents value law and order. Lake Elsinore residents agree that the victims of crimes deserve justice – the current trend of many newly elected officials all seem to be centered on improving the lives of criminals.” – Steve Manos

Reduce the Taxes that are Displacing Jobs and Productive Residents

“As a small business owner I know first-hand how a local government’s hostile business environment can impact the lives of everyone in in a city. Heavy taxes and regulation favor those that influence public policy, creating barriers to entry for new entrepreneurs, often by design.

Anti-business legislation stifles innovation and progress. It sends jobs elsewhere along with the most productive residents. By using economic development best practices we can continue to attract businesses that bring good jobs and services to our community.” – Steve Manos
