The United States of America is a great nation that I am proud to be a part of.   It's Democracy and Core Values is what makes our nation great.

As a police officer (retired), I am proud to have enforced all laws in the "spirit" as opposed to the letter. The beauty of which is that regardless of your color, creed, race, sex, natural origin, or sexual preference, all people enjoy these freedoms under the constitution.   I performed my duties on a daily basis with this in mind. Most often victims would be afraid to speak up in fear of deportation, yet, if they are victims, I treated them the same as if they were Citizens.

I strongly believe in supporting the oppressed and listen to thier concerns.  I don't support violence of any type.

I believe that our young children are our future and we must protect our environment so that they can thrive as I did.

In this political arena, I have learned a valuable lesson and that is "one becomes guilty by association".  In other words if someone supports you and another person(s) do not like that person, subsequently they don't like you.  I respect all affiliations and individual supportors, that is the democratic way.   Please consider the candidate and thier values.

I am confident that my service within the community for the past 40 years, is indicative as to the person I am and the respect I give to all. This coupled with Sincerity, Integrity, Active Listener and Experience, which are the qualities of a great candidate.   There are no skeletons in my closet, and no self serving interests. 

I humbly request your vote!
