I’m a father, a Camarillo Businessman, and an Accomplished Community Leader who wants to ensure Camarillo’s future for my children and generations of Camarillo residents to come. That’s why I’m running for Camarillo City Council.
Not only have I been a lifelong resident of Camarillo, I’ve been active serving and/or supporting our community in the following organizations:
I've always been a leader and a winner! As team captain, I led the 1996 Camarillo High school Football team to a CIF Championship and also a CIF Champion as a wrestler. I also led my Moorpark College wrestling team to a State Championship in 1997. I want to also help lead the City of Camarillo to its full potential. In 2008, I helped the Camarillo Area Transit expand and enhance their services for the City of Camarillo. In 2012, I helped save the Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC) Bus Service from being dissolved by providing a plan and leadership to continue the service for the Citizens of Ventura County. I believe Camarillo has better potential to thrive and enhance the services for our citizens under my proven leadership.
Camarillo City Council District 5 encompasses the following neighborhoods below:
Protecting Public Safety
Keeping our City safe must be our City's top priority!
Preserving Our Quality of Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness
Safeguard our beautiful environment, water, parks and open spaces that make our part
of the world such a great place to live.
It’s time for the City to take more active measures to move homeless individuals off the streets and into effective mental health and addiction treatment along with back to work programs.
Stopping Government Overreach
As Councilmember, I will work to create a supportive environment for our community and small businesses to recover and local workers to prosper while ensuring our schools and businesses always remain open and a priority for the City.
Affordable Housing for All Income Levels
Housing is considered affordable when it costs no more than 30% of a household's gross annual income.
There’s been a lot of talk about one project in particular, the Camarillo Springs development. I want to make it clear I won’t be voting (either way- yes or no) on this project as I live on the course and must recuse myself. In fact, I’m the only candidate who can definitively tell you now where I stand, because I won’t be able to vote. Others may make it a key point in their campaign- I’m focused on the bigger picture. I’m running for all of Camarillo with the intent to leave my children a safer, more sustainable, and economically resilient City than we have today, and that’s bigger than any one project.
