My Top 3 Priorities

  • Enact policies and laws to stimulate economic growth and protect American jobs.
  • Return government, as much as possible, to local control and reduce the size and scope of the Federal Government as prescribe in the Constitution.
  • Balance the budget and insist on fiscal responsibility with tax monies and the public trust.

I am a member of a 5 generation farming family.  My family has farmed in Yolo County since the 1880’s and currently farms 3,500 acres.  Additionally, as retired Lieutenant Colonel, I served 28 years with the Marines including combat operations in the Battle of Fallujah-2004 and Operation Desert Storm-1991.  I also received commendations for support the Bosnia Peacekeeping effort in 1997 and from the Armed Forces of Japan for helping to prepare them for their first combat deployment since WWII in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom-2003.




I am a graduate of Chico State University majoring in Agronomy-Soil and Water Science and Yuba College majoring in Agricultural Business.




As your new congressman I pledge to reinstate confidence and accountability in Washington.  Let’s ‘Restore Congress’    Restore ethics, pride, leadership, fiscal responsibility, and work to get both Democrats and Republicans to stop the infighting and get things done! 


I will not promise you a new deal, a better deal, or a deal of any kind.   Rather, what I promise is fair honest leadership and I will work tirelessly to clean up our government’s fiscal mess.  


We need action in Congress, not words.   The recent fires and lack of care of our forests and open areas have destroyed so many homes, lives, and communities.  For decades our government has stifled proper care of these areas.   Now we see the result-mass devastation and loss of life!   It’s the same with water and flood control.  Our dams are failing but billions of dollars will be spent for unneeded Delta tunnels.   We need to change this and we need to do it immediately!

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy


I lean conservative but realize that in order to get things done in Washington I need to listen to and work with others of differing views.
