My top goal is to be a candidate you can trust. My campaign is future focused, issue based with common sense holistic REAL solutions presented. I welcome your input on how to make the solutions even better.
The REAL approach to make California and our district better!
Restoring Public Safety, Restoring Trust in California State Government
Ensuring Excellence in Education, Ensuring Economic Vitality, Ensuring Environmental Stewardship
Accountability and Accessibility from our government agencies, bureaucrats, elected leaders and lobbyists
Lower Taxes and Fees, Less Intrusions into your life, less complicated laws
What you can expect from me when elected:
I am going to the State Assembly with the goal of preparing our government to provide you with best possible future. To do so I will focus on the three R’s:
REPAIR, REFORM and RESTRUCTURE our State Government
with the purpose of improving your life by lowering the costs of government and providing you more freedom, opportunities and respect.
I promise to do my best to communicate with you as we create the best possible California dream.
It won’t be easy but part of the solution is in my name – I will take the BRUNT of the rath of the defenders of the status Quo – I can handle a TON!

A note about my time as an Ohlone College Trustee...
I had the honor of serving as an elected member of the Ohlone College Board of Trustees for 12 years.
It was a learning experience. I took my position very seriously, and always attended each meeting with the best possible preparation.
During my tenure, I was able to interview and hire two outstanding College Presidents (essentially the CEOs of the District), develop two major growth projects (including the establishment of the Newark Center), greatly improve the district’s financial resources and strength, improve the college’s connection to the community, and most importantly, help to create and support an educational system that allowed for student learning and students’ successful preparation for the future.
As should be expected when pushing for improvement, accountability, and openness, some controversies arose and some egos got ruffled. During this campaign, you may even hear about these incidents. In the past, they were greatly exaggerated and distorted, and I remain at ease with my role in them. Reason being, I was laser-focused on one goal only: making Ohlone College the best it could possibly be. If you have any questions or concerns, you are always welcome to contact me directly.
Why is this important? Well, when elected as your next representative, I will have the same goal of being laser-focused on improvement, while having good attendance and being fully prepared. Along the way, I’ll be willing to make the tough decisions, while always letting you know why I voted the way I did.
