My Top 3 Priorities

  • Healthcare for Citizens in our District. We have all tried to avoid these issues for a long time the cost of Health Care is the root causes of other issues in our communities. People hold on for a long time until we end up in Emergency Room
  • Housing, we are building homes that are affordable for people that are on the street. We need to rethink the word "Affordable Housing"
  • Transportation We are completely Landlocked in our District, Housing , Healthcare without the means of getting the People from point A to B in a reasonably time takes the fun out of quality of life of the citizens. Two hours in Traffic is not fun.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

My Political Philosophy is rooted in our constituition. By the People and for the people. And it has broaden over the years to include "If We The People can Keep it" An atmosphere that welcomes people from all walks of lives without regard to their Color. creed , religion or sexual orientation or gender and age. The above has been my guiding principle since I became a citizen and able to participate in our political system. The United state has been good to me and I promise to give back to our Country by serving in any capacity that i have the opportunity serve in. This is my eight years as a council Member and I have served as a vice Mayor in the City of Lathrop where we have transformed our sleeping City to a thriving Community and we are still growing. The transformation is accomplished without excessive Debts on the citizens we actually have close to $10 Million Dollars in reserve. It takes strong leadership and sincerety and committment to strong Values and integrity to get enviable results like we have in the City Lathrop. We can do this in Sacaramento also. Let's Do This
