Biography

I am a single father to my ten year old daughter, Monica. I was born in Hayward and raised in Union City’s Decoto District by my grandparents who taught me their respected values learned during the Depression and WWII. Work values they learned laboring in the fields, canneries and manufacturing plants.

I graduated from James Logan High in 1989 and was on the inaugural Forensics team led by Tommie Lindsey.  I am a product of our state college system. I attended Chabot College and CSU Hayward, eventually earning my MBA.

I serve as the Chairperson of the Union City Human Relations Commission and a proud member of the Board of Directors for Tiburcio Vazquez Health Center.

I believe in creating more quality jobs for Californians that want them. I want businesses to start and expand in California without leaving the state. Our jobs need to start in CA and stay in CA!

I want our educational system to be first rate again. Not fall behind Alabama and Mississippi. We owe our children and their children a better future. Together we can make the change.

We should help those less fortunate, and give them the skills and resources needed to help themselves.

Political Beliefs

I believe in small, limited government. I believe that we should help our fellow man to become self-sufficient. We should not make them dependent on the government.
