Biography

 a first-generation As a first-generation immigrant, successful businessman, father, and man of faith, I have served my community for the last 10 years as councilman and mayor. As mayor, I made The City of Walnut one of the best places to raise a family; supported our public schools in maintaining its ranking as the top 1% in the nation, been fiscally responsible to produce city reserves, and reduced violent crime to 3x lower than the national rate. As your congressman, I will improve the economy, secure the border, protect our unborn, advocate for education, and defend our constitution. Because God and you come first.

 

 

With the passing of my wife and loved ones, I determined to utilize my energy, talents, and efforts toward serving my community. Over the last decade, while raising my two beautiful daughters, I have dedicated my life to helping others through volunteer work: distributing food, supplies, and other resources to thousands of people in need.

 

While we may all have different political, religious, or social views, we all share a common interest to pursue a better future. My goal is to provide safe neighborhoods, good jobs, and a place to comfortably grow old and raise our kids. We need leaders with proven results.
