La Mirada City Council
Leadership - Integrity - Service -Trust
The people have spoken - La Mirada needs new leadership. Join the movement to take back District 2 and put a leader who can roll up their sleeves and get the job done. It's time for a leader with integrity. It's time for a leader we can trust. It's time for David Constantine for La Mirada City Council.
Upon election, I will work with my fellow council members to continue making La Mirada a great place to live and do business. Through the process of partnership, participation, and collaboration I will work with our council to put our platform into action.
Invest in law enforcement to combat theft, illegal fireworks, and street racing.
Improve crosswalks and sidewalks so children can safely walk to/from school.
Add pedestrian stoplight at Rosecrans and La Fonda for children walking to/from La Pluma Elementary and La Mirada High School.
Add pedestrian stoplight at Santa Gertrudes and Ashgrove for children walking to/from Eastwood Elementary School.
Add pedestrian stoplight at Rosecrans and Stanton for children walking to/from Eastwood Elementary School.
Add pedestrian stoplight at Alondra and Dalmatian for children walking to/from Escalona Elementary School.
Support after-school and summer programs and activities for La Mirada’s youth and teens away from school and sports so they’re “too busy to get into trouble.”
Establish a first-time homebuyer program for people who rent or work in La Mirada to attract more families instead of more investors.
Improve relations between city and school district to ensure La Mirada is a community where “Children Come First.”
Create innovative new programs to attract this new post-pandemic generation of high-tech remote workers/telecommuters.
Build upon the "Vacant Commercial Property Ordinance" to continue to hold commercial property owners accountable to clean-up ailing buildings and community nuisances (specifically the old “Sizzler” building at Adelfa and Rosecrans which has become a recent magnet for vandalism and those homeless who refuse help from LA County and state programs).
Ensure responsible economic development along the I-5 corridor and Beach Blvd. support our community and reflect "La Mirada values."
Support fiscally sound and responsible spending without new taxes.
Ensure La Mirada maintains a balanced budget and elite standing as one of California’s most financially sound cities.
