My Top 3 Priorities

  • Protect Prop-13
  • Preserve our incredible Ocean and Beach Resources.
  • Improve our Transportation systems and Infrastructure, but oppose further funding the crazy train to nowhere (high speed rail project)



Let’s be clear.  California is a beautiful land of opportunity, but it is broken.  


Sacramento is filled with politicians who have lost sight of what’s important to working families and our neighborhoods.  I’m running for Assembly to represent YOU.

Every day we learn about some fresh horror coming out of Sacramento. Violent felons get early releases. The mentally ill homeless fill our streets. Gas taxes and car registration costs go up, as everything we loved about California slips away. It’s a long list.


All we get from Sacramento are fairy tales about how this is the “New Normal”. We cannot let that be true.


As a former mayor of Encinitas and Chair of North County Transit District I was awarded the “Grand Golden Watchdog Award” by the San Diego County Taxpayers Association.  I’ve made government work from the inside. Where lower taxes, less regulation, are the means to solutions, not just buzzwords.


That’s why I’m proud to have the support of so many current and former elected officials such as Congressman Brian Bilbray, Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall, Del Mar Mayor Carl Hilliard, Encinitas Mayor Christy Guerin, Escondido Councilman Ed Gallo, Oceanside Councilmembers Jerry Kern and Jack Feller, San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond, San Marcos Vice Mayor Rebecca Jones, and Vista Councilman Bob Campbell, partial list.


My wife Lisa and I and our three children have lived in Encinitas for over 30 years. 


Visit our website at or better still call me at 

760-815-7787. I’ll pick up.

If you want to fix California as badly as I do, join us. 


I would be honored to have your vote.
