Biography

I am a first generation American living the dream, and I am proud to call Benicia my home. 

My wife, Jennifer, and I are raising our daughters, Graciela and Viviana, in Benicia because the quality of life here is unmatched in California.  In addition to raising my family, Benicia is where I work, volunteer and proudly serve our community as Vice Chair of the Economic Development Board.

I am running for Benicia City Council because I believe we have an obligation to pass along an even better Benicia to the next generation.  

The priorities for Benicia are:

  • Public Safety
  • City Financial Stability
  • Attract & Retain Businesses
  • Better Roads
  • Infrastructure Improvements
  • Youth & Seniors Advocacy

It’s time for new leaders who will inject new ideas into city policies.  Benicia needs leaders who understand the importance of thriving businesses in our community, and how they affect our overall economy, schools and property values.  We need leaders who will work with city staff and community organizations to shape a better future for Benicia.

I am proud to be endorsed by:

  • Benicia Police Officers Association
  • IAFF Local 1186 (Benicia Firefighters Association)
  • Benicia Teachers Association
  • Benicia Chamber of Commerce
  • Napa/Solano Central Labor Council

I would be honored to serve you on the City Council.  I will fight every day to protect what you work for and to preserve all that’s great about Benicia.
