My Top 3 Priorities

  • Make Whittier Business Friendly! Cut regulations, cut red tape, make user friendly website to expedite business licenses & requests, work with business minded organizations to find out what they need to succeed
  • Parking. Fix issue with under-utilized parking garage, build other parking options, better traffic flow
  • Safety. Our citizens need to feel safe. Bring back Uptown Police bike patrol, patrol for park and trails, work with organizations to help with vagrancy problem



My career background is in Business & Business Development with a degree in Political Science. I work with businesses to grow their revenue, while helping them to expand and be profitable. I was tired of sitting on the sidelines, wishing for changes to my city. I wanted to play an active role in my cities growth and change, and to utilize my skills and fresh approach to the City Council.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

A former Republican, turned Libertarian. 

I beleive in freeing businesses from the stranglehold of excesive regulations and red tape.

I believe in smart government spending, cutting in needless areas and spending more in key areas.

I beleive in a new voice for Whittier, same group of people have been running the city for decades, so term limits are important.

I beleive that most of the time the government does a poor job when it tries to do everything, so it is at its most optimal when only focusing on key areas only; Business Growth, Saftey of Citzens, Infastructure, City Identity/Growth
