As a third generation Santa Cruz native, I have a unique perspective of life in Santa Cruz. However, I feel that our way of life is being threatened.
Santa Cruz has a crime problem, unemployment is on the rise, and our beaches rank among the most polluted in the state. As a father, and surfer I understand the environment is critically important to all of us and needs to be preserved.
I realize the importance of creating economic growth by the means of development and revitalization of outdated structures. By growing our local economy we will be able to provide the community with jobs, and the city the funds we need to thrive.
I feel that my business background and youthful exuberance make me a great candidate to get the job done.
Credentials: Graduate of Santa Cruz High School, Associate’s Degree from Cabrillo College, Bachelors of Science in Business Marketing from SJSU, Married father. Active Member of Native Sons, Marconi Club, and Santa Cruz Yacht Club. If elected I will do my best to rid Santa Cruz of its crime problem and revitalize our economy.
