Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Continue the positive momentum to build important projects that directly benefit the safety and enjoyment of our residents.
  • Continue to provide our residents with the safest city in San Diego County by supporting our Safety Services Department.
  • Use Common Sense and fiscal restraint when spending the taxpayers money. Encourage business growth to add tax dollars.



Profesión:Incumbent Councilmember, City of Poway
Councilmember, City of Poway — Cargo designado (2015–current)


University of Massachusetts, Amherst BBA, Business Administration, Marketing (1978)


I was co-founder of a successful high tech company in the Boston area. The sale of this business in 2000 allowed me to move my family to Poway where our daughter attended Poway schools and currently is finishing her MBA at Point Loma Nazarene Univ. I have always been an active volunteer in local schools and in our church to enhance the lives of those around me and to give back blessings to others. I currently serve as HOA President where I am responsible for 87 homes in my neighborhood. I was also Vice Chairman of the City Budget Review Committee where i worked closely with the City Manager and various department heads.

As current Councilmember, I serve as a member of the Economic Development Subcommittee, Delegate to the California League of Cities, Delegate to the Goodan Ranch Preserve and the Alternate to the San Dieguito Riverpark Trail Network. 

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

My political philosophy is very simple. I am a common sense guy. I believe in the rights of property owners and I believe in small government. In Poway we are able to accomplish much with few people and we take care of each other. We are blessed with large cash reserves as the result of careful fiscal management and we have the safest city in the county due to our relationship with each other and our Safety Services Department. We also have the best streets in San Diego County because we make a committment to an intelligent maintenance program. We are proud to provide balanced budgets and high service levels to our citizens.

My goal is to continue what we do best and to improve our ability to provide core services to our residents. I view my job as a Manager of an $83m business and I continue to set policy that benefits our City and its residents. I also view myself as a strategic visionary and builder of our city for future generations. I am committed to a better Poway and the needs of the citizens.
