My Top 3 Priorities

  • Begin the process of realigning the revenue stream and budgeting process to bring many missing community amenities to fruition and to perform timely infrastructure maintenance.
  • Develop employment centers with fully installed infrastructure systems.
  • Improve public service, level of service standards, and the community's quality of life.



I have been a resident of Manteca for over 60 years, was employed by the City of Manteca as the city planner for over 34 years, a member or board member of several community organizations, and currently in business as a land use planning and building design consultant.
