My Top 3 Priorities

  • Fiscal Responsibility' and more-so Transparency in city government.
  • Orange-Cove will go an overhaul toward IT (technology) in all departments making Orange Cove issues and meetings open to the public.
  • Water quality, a major issue requires looking at new technological advancements and the right solutions for our city.



My family was business oriented on both sides.
I learned many skills early on.
As a young man I was a journeyman in the Burglar and Fire alarm trade.
I excelled in that industry for 19 years helping businesses and homeowners with security needs.
My experience in the restaurant business will help round-table discussions to develop more opportunities for our local entrepreneurs.
My inner-city, outreach volunteer work, as advisor and volunteer chaplain with Fresno gang-task force is a plus. My Grandfather was with the FBI, SFPD and ended a fifty year career with a Deputy Sherriff position, I like to think, we were raised right.
Privileged to be selected community leader on many steering committees  and advisor to Mayors.
Established  outreach to more the 300 children and developed a toy drive effort that existed 15 years.
 I was privileged as director of Interseed world outreach- to coordinate the largest independent food outreach in the SJ valley with 13,400 signing in and 57,000 receiving free -fresh -food over six weeks time with Gerawan farms donating 400,000lbs of fruit for the effort.
Built a small chain of thrift stores in two states which offered services to various agenciesas well as supplied paychecks to families.
Much more could be said.
I have a strong desire to see Orange Cove achieve its full potential.
