Throughout my campaign and my time in office, if elected, I will be engaging with community and stakeholders around my values and priorities to identify timely issues of reform and public safety that matter to all of us – and that require a responsive policy pledge from me.


As these conversations occur, I will publish policy pledges regularly on this website and other channels for continuing public comment and review.


Please join me in these conversations in a daily, 6PM Zoom Town Hall at:  zoom.tomrvaca.com


Or please email my campaign to schedule a Zoom meeting with me:  meet@tomrvaca.com
