Leadership For Oviedo's Future

Why is Abe running for Mayor?

During our current mayors first term, Oviedo has been plagued by reckless development, increasing traffic, strained budgets, and frustrated city staff. To make matters worse, the mayor has aligned herself with supporters of high-rise apartment buildings, defunding local police and fire, hostility toward local business, and unconstitutional ordinances to suppress religious liberty. Abe’s vision for the future of our city: Delivering Better Government, Promoting Vibrant Neighborhoods, Ensuring Public Safety, Facilitating Civic Engagement, Growing Oviedo’s Economy, Enhancing Green Spaces and Recreation, and Building Partnerships with Federal, State, and County leaders in both parties.

Governor of NJ; Former Executive Director, Center for Hispanic Policy, Research and Development; Former Director, Hispanic and Faith-Based Affairs; Former Deputy Mayor & Committeeman, Westampton Township

Better Government
Your Concerns Matter

Being Mayor is more than just a title and a vote on city council.  It’s a responsibility to make yourself available to the residents and listen to their concerns and needs. That means inclusive government that represents the concerns important to the people, not the politicians.

Through the diversity of Abe’s professional experiences, he will cultivate a culture of collaboration, and not one of conflict. Abe is focused on responsible spending and will improve efficiency and eliminate waste.  He’ll work with our City’s dedicated staff members to investigate shared service opportunities with surrounding communities, consider money-saving solutions proven successful in other towns, and will leverage all the federal and state money we can for open space, transit and infrastructure.

Abe shares the community’s concerns with respect to controlling growth, alleviating traffic, and investing in essential services.  Oviedans should insist on a government that is responsive, transparent, and competent. As your mayor, Abe will be hands-on, accessible, and will give city employees the authority and support to effectively and efficiently do their jobs.

Community Development
Community Focused

There are no great cities without great neighborhoods.  That is why building strong, healthy, and vibrant neighborhoods is the cornerstone of Abe’s plan for Community Focused Development.

Successful community focused development starts by honoring Oviedo’s history and empowering residents, neighborhood advocates and associations to co-create the future for what their specific neighborhood needs.

Abe will seek guidance from residents that will help the city ensure all community development efforts are equitable and serve to improve the quality of life for all Oviedans, while still ensuring we are a forward-looking, aspirational city whose best days are ahead.

Ensure Public Safety
Keeping You Safe

Abe will have the back of the police officers and firefighters of this city – the men and women who keep us safe every day.  On his watch, these heroes will have strong public support and the proper tools to do their jobs.

Abe applauds our police department’s community policing efforts and will work collectively and collaboratively with the leadership of the police department and community leaders to continue fostering communication in an atmosphere of mutual trust and commonality.

Regular communication is key, and as mayor, Abe will engage the full community, meet regularly with neighborhood leaders and fire and police employee groups to review existing measures, consider new opportunities, and to create a safe Oviedo for all, together.
