My Top 3 Priorities

  • Attract and support economic opportunities for Ridgecrest, including the new casino.
  • Repair and improve city infrastructure, especially our streets in disrepair.
  • Bring better, more reliable, broadband Internet service to Ridgecrest.



I have resided in Ridgecrest, CA for nearly 30 years. My wife and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary this summer. We have two adult children, both with families of their own, and 4 grandchildren. All live here in Ridgecrest. This is my first run for elective office, however I do have experience as an appointed director of my old EMS district in Illinois. I led the local effort to support the partnership between the city and the Timbisha Shoshone tribe and see it as a first step in broadening our economic base here in the valley, as well as garnering new visitors to our city. Please join me in this effort!

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

My political philosophy is that good government is essential to liberty. It must be open, responsive, transparent. Governmental decisions should always be made based upon evidence, not personal or religious bias.
