Dear Friends,

I grew up in Santa Cruz and I am proud to call it my home. I am passionate about my community and being a councilmember the past four years has been an absolute privilege. With your support, I would appreciate the opportunity to continue serving the city I love.  

I believe strongly that our quality of life is rooted not just within our households, but also within our neighborhoods and community. As Santa Cruzans, we love the outdoors, our public events and connecting with each other as we go about our day. It is important that the foundations of the community are healthy and strong.

With your support, I will continue to be a champion for Santa Cruz and responsive to neighborhood concerns and needs. Let’s work together in improving our wonderful city.

About Richelle

I grew up here and I’m proud to call Santa Cruz my home. My parents owned small businesses and instilled in me a strong work ethic. My first job was delivering the Santa Cruz Sentinel to my neighbors.

After graduating from college, I worked in Los Angeles and San Francisco briefly, but returned to my hometown in my mid-20s to live in and serve the community I love.

Encourage job growth in Santa Cruz, more must be done to ensure roadblocks at city hall do not stand in the way of success.

Public Safety

Our streets are not as safe as they should be, supporting our police with more resources to combat crime is essential.


Real solutions that are meant to address both community concerns and provide better options for people who seek to no longer be homeless.


We need smaller affordable rental units for young people just starting out in a career or seniors looking to downsize from a single-family home.
