Biography

 

It is said that “There is no greater calling than to serve your fellow men.” I believe that we must use our talents to serve and now I want to serve my Community as Auditor-Controller.

 

I’ve lived in the Imperial County most of my life. I graduated from Brawley Union High School, I am a Navy veteran, I graduated from Imperial Valley College with two A.A. degrees, and went on to get a Bachelor’s degree. For the past ten years, as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), I’ve been conducting audits for various governmental entities. I have also enjoyed serving my community as a board member of several local organizations.

 

I will make the role of Auditor-Controller relevant and raise awareness of its importance in protecting how our tax dollars are spent. I will inform you and listen to your thoughts, concerns and ideas. I will assist County leadership and be a part of the financial decision process. I will protect our County assets with the help of a properly equipped, trained and motivated workforce.

 

In short, I ask for the opportunity to work for you. I look forward to serving you as Auditor-Controller and thank you for you trust and support on June 5th.
