Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Fire safety for District 5 is a high priority along with a balanced and fiscally responsible budget and allow no fracking
  • Public Safety and relations with all related departments to keep experienced staff and minimize turn over.
  • Fair wages for all Butte County employees and respect. Listen to concerns of large local groups like cannabis growers, etc and come up w/solutions that work for all.

Biografía

I was born in Frankfurt in 1960 on a U.S. Army base while my father was stationed in Germany. My family and I moved to Indiana when I was one year old. When I was seven we returned to Germany and lived in Heidelberg, my mother’s home town. After graduating from the German school system in 1980, I worked as a computer tech for U.S. military facilities in Germany until 1989. I also worked as a S.C.U.B.A. instructor and Master Diver for U.S. Armed Forces stationed in Europe. I also had a working band touring Europe and performing for U.S. soldiers all over Europe.

In 1989 I moved back to the U.S. and landed in Butte County. I worked in sales, and as a musician, until I started my company Swiss-Link, Inc. in 1996. My company imports and distributes military surplus from Europe. We also manufacture gas cans and storm bags. I manage and employ 12 people at my business in Paradise. I have great people working for me, some for over 15 years, and I understand what it takes to have a great working relationship with my employees, and with my customers. I play in a 10 piece band called, “Big Mo & The Full Moon Band” which has successfully entertained in Northern California for 15 years now. I have always been able to handle budget issues with my company and band, and while running other companies before starting my own.

I believe that Butte County Supervisors must have respect for the people and budget of Butte County, while also having a high respect for the land in Butte County. I am very concerned about fire safety in District 5, and will work to help prevent possible fire disasters. I will collaborate closely with Police, Fire, and other emergency agencies concerning the general safety of all Butte County citizens. I will oppose Fracking.

Agriculture, land, and water issues are important topics in Butte County, and I am looking forward to learning more about those issues, and working with all involved. I also am concerned with addressing mental health issues and homelessness. The job of a County Supervisor is an important one, and I am asking for your vote.
