My Top 3 Priorities

  • Fair and equal learning opportunity for "all" students => COVID19: counseling support for physical and mental health and IT/computer support to remote students.
  • No bullying - Fair and equal treatment for all students, including sports and extracurricular activities. Hold students and teachers involved accountable for their actions and reward/acknowledge those who support anti-bullying program.
  • Start and advance the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programs and reward teachers for their contribution. These are the fastest growing fields with very high pay.

Biography

I came to the United States in 1971 and started in the 5th grade.  I grew up working on my dad's and other farms throughout my college years. I wanted to be a police office so studied criminal justice in junior college, but changed to engineering when I went to university.  After graduating with Engineering degree I joined USAF as an engineer (civilian) and served five years with the F-22 Fighter program leading the development of the system support plan.

Due to Closure of McClellan AFB, I joined the private industry with a Startup company that developed the Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and Voice Over IP (VOIP) technologies in 1999.  After the 9-11 and the Tech Boom bust, I went into mortgage lending the tax prepartion and started a partnership and openen Jackson Hewitt Tax Service franchise which I ran for few years.  As it was mostly a seasonal business, I went back into technology / engineering and went into the SAP Security and Compliance field and current am a cybersecurity engineer with a large health company.

I enjoy learning and teaching enigeering and technology which provide some of the best and high paying careers in both the public and private sectors.

 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe the role of any leader, be it religious, technical, athletics, or political is to advise/guide and support the public to achieve a successful and rewarding life, for men and women equally.

As Sikhism's first Guru (Teacher/Messiah/Avtar), Guru Nanak (born 1469), responded to Hindu Pundits of his time "How can a 'woman' be lower than a man, when woman is the one who gives birth to the messiahs and to the kings?".  A woman was considered man's property which Guru Nanak did not agree with and He gave women equal status as men.
