I am running to be a delegate to the California Democratic State Central Committee representing Assembly District 1.
I am currently a Delegate for this district and am running for re-election. I was fortunate to have been appointed to the Voter Services standing committee of the California Democratic Party (CDP) where I contributed to CDP efforts to ensure that every eligible voter is able to cast a ballot. I have been able to participate in the Conventions and Executive Board meetings where I have been able to establish friendships and alliances with other delegates and CDP Party Leaders. This participation has allowed me to advocate for various issues affecting our North State.
During the 2018 election cycle, I also contributed in a more boots-on-the-ground manner to congressional campaigns in CD1 and CD4. I am proud to say that I knocked on over 800 doors in support of our Congressional and Assembly candidates. I also participated in phone-banks and text-banks emphasizing outreach to Latinos as well as other Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts on election day itself.
Lastly, I am the Chair of the Placer County Democratic Central Committee (DCC). I represent Placer County’s 5th Supervisory district which encompasses the Eastern part of Placer County.
I’m a life-long California resident, born and raised in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. I graduated from Sonoma State University as a physicist. I am married to a wonderful woman and we have been blessed with three loving children. As you may have seen on this site, I am a veteran of the United States Navy and currently work as a computer professional.
My goals for our party include:
- Advocating for policies that address our lack of affordable housing across our state and especially in our region
- Ensuring that quality, affordable healthcare is available to every one of our residents now with a goal of a single-payer health care system in the near future
- Providing education and training to our young people so that they can pursue a career with the potential for growth and success locally
I humbly ask for your vote on January 13, 2019 at the ADEM elections taking place on that date.
I am honored to have received ENDORSEMENTS from people whom I respect deeply.
