Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. Free markets are only effective if the parties have something to exchange - without money, one cannot participate in healthcare markets.
  • Income and wealth inequality. Government determines the extent of inequality in our society through redistribution 1. to upper income (eminent domain, sanctioned monopolies, etc.) or 2. lower income (progressive taxation, food stamps, etc.).
  • Electing candidates who can legislate effectively. As can be seen from the current congress, ideologues cannot govern effectively. We need candidates who understand multiple perspectives.



Michigan State University B.S., M.S., Ph.D., Physics (1981)


Although born in the Chicago area, I went to primary and secondary school in rural Michigan.  In 1968, half way through my undergraduate education, I entered the military.  I married my wife, Linda, and returned to Michigan after the military to finish my B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. at Michigan State University in Physics.  Most of my career was spent in the aerospace industry developing means to exploit data and develop information.  In 1994, I started a small company to develop technology to control irrigation, conserving more than 30% of water usage.  However, the economics of agriculture at that time led me back into aerospace in 1998.  My wife has been a registered nurse for 40 plus years, the last 26 at Pomerado Hospital.  Our oldest daughter is a cancer researcher at the Curie Institute.  Our younger daughter is a clinical social worker specializing in mental health at Mental Health America in Long Beach.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Despite having a bent towards the sciences, growing up in rural michigan without access to medical or dental healthcare, or other services, made me appreciate the implicit advantages of  higher socio-economic strata – reading the definition of an engineer or lawyer doesn't mean you understand the implications of a career in those fields.  I was lucky.  In 1968, I found myself working as a night auditor/clerk in the hotel politicians frequented across the street from Michigan's capitol building.  I met all the presidential candidates as they visited that year, but I was fortunate to have many conversations with a lobbyist, Dale Kildee, who went on to become a state legislator and congressman.  Because the national convention of the SDS was held at Michigan State University in June of 1968, I was introduced to the power of activism.  Although focused on a career, I found time to do some work for Tom Sawyer, a congressman from Akron, Ohio, in the 80s.  I have been more active the past 10 years, driven by my background to focus on healthcare policy, income and wealth inequality, and finding candidates who start in the trenches and appreciate the requirement to get things done.  Being on the Central Committee of the Democratic Party is an important leadership role.  Continuing my membership will enable me to advocate for these important issues.
