My Top 3 Priorities

  • Public Safety: We are safer statistically now than we were when we were considered the #1 safest city in America. In my time on the City Council we have had two of the safest years in our history and we will continue the trend.
  • Business Friendly: I will continue to work toward streamlining the entry process and reducing the obstacles confronting new businesses, making it more inviting and easier to come and set up shop and stay here in Simi Valley.
  • Transparency: I Pledge to work for ALL of the citizens of Simi Valley, always in an ethical and open manner.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I've lived in Simi Valley all of my life.  I wish to continue to serve the city that has given me so much.


Still on the job as a 28-year Police Officer with the LAPD and an US Army/California National Guard Veteran, I believe in hands on public service not lip service.

            My wife and I love raising our family in Simi Valley. All of our children attended our public schools.


I am a fiscally conservative, law and order, pro-business and pro-family candidate. You will never wonder which side of an issue I am on. If it improves our city’s safety, if it’s good for Simi Valley’s businesses or if it improves our quality of life then I am all in!
