Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Financial – Clearly the unfunded pension liabilities and Civic Center debt, that previous councils encumbered us with, are hanging over our heads and have the potential to keep the city from upgrading its facilities like fire stations.
  • Harbor – The harbor is the jewel of the city and has been neglected for decades, with only half of the necessary dredging performed, along with other deferred maintenance. We need to improve our harbor to the world class amenity that it is.
  • Taxpayer Protection Act – This is a charter amendment that is on the ballot this November that will require future city councils to get voter approval before taking on massive debt (greater than $50 Million) without voter approval.

I was elected in 2014 to cut spending and to preserve Newport Beach’s quality of life. 

 I have worked for four years to clean up the financial excesses of prior city councils. 

 I am a strong supporter of the proposed charter amendment giving you the right to vote on debt for large city projects. 

 The previous city council used a loophole in Proposition 13 to finance the $142 million Taj-Ma-City-Hall project without a vote of the people.  It’s time to close the loophole.

 As a councilman I have used my background as a licensed architect, former Planning Commissioner, and businessman to tackle our growth and traffic issues, and protect your private property rights.

 Since my election we have paid down our pension debt, incurred by the previous city council, by nearly $80,000,000, using surplus budget funds while maintaining our high-quality public services. 

 As an Eagle Scout and father of an Eagle Scout, I led the charge to repeal the wood burning beach fire ban passed by the prior city council.

 I believe government's role should be to keep us safe, be invisible until you need it, and then provide services as efficiently as possible.
