My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public Safety
  • Partnership with the educational community to mentor children for both academic and technical careers
  • Smart economic growth



One of the biggest reasons that families move to the City of Alhambra is because of the quality of life the residents receive.  As resident of Alhambra for 12 years, I have invested in our community by serving in city commissions and boards, volunteered as a coach and referee in youth sports programs, and have been a mentor to children in the Alhambra Unified School District by being a parent volunteer at my son’s school.   

I am more than qualified to lead Alhambra because of my leadership experience, strong people skills, and drive to make Alhambra even better.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

The reason I chose to run for the Alhambra City Council District Seat No. 4 is because if you want to make your community great, you have to be willing to invest back into your community.  I have over 20 years of public service and I believe that if I am elected I have the passion to make our community great.
