About Me


I am running for mayor of El Cajon because I believe that my experience and my abilities will create and accomplish a comprehensive plan of action that will tackle the problems in our city. El Cajon residents deserve higher standards. Sadly, mostly in the past decade, the onset of issues such as homelessness, housing affordability, and school safety are threatening the quality of life in our once revived and reputable city.
I have been a licensed real-estate professional since 1986; I bought my very first home in El Cajon in 1992. I have a deep love and appreciation for the city of El Cajon and the people who make it such a very special place. It is for those reasons that I want to take my city in a different and more positive direction.

I have seen many positive changes especially downtown being built up. Everyone was full of optimism for a bright future in an up-and-coming community that would have a contemporary-retro style. Unfortunately, in the past decade there has been a slow degradation of our community. In the last 5 years the decline of housing affordability combined with an increase in the homeless population has become so pronounced that many El Cajon residents now are losing hope within this great city that once was.


The resources we need have been slowly stripped away. The solution is to go back to what works and restore programs that addressed and prevented these issues. These programs include:
• Outreach community programs for physical and mental health
• Job training programs and self-improvement education
• Mandatory drug rehab programs in lieu of jail sentences
• Enforcement of loitering laws with an increase of shelter support systems
• Security in our schools
Obviously, I will support the first responders in El Cajon regardless of the results of the campaign to accomplish the vision that will allow a turnaround of the issues affecting our city. We can do this without any additional city taxes.
Yes, that means I want to cut taxes and relieve the burden upon the people and families of El Cajon and on the businesses that should be thriving in our community. The funds we need are readily available from the State of California as well as the Federal Government.
My effective and dynamic leadership of the many city resources will achieve the goals of becoming a model city once again!
I am proud to be endorsed by the Democratic Party and East County Democratic Caucus. I will represent the interests of voters of all parties and most importantly, all citizens of the city of El Cajon, California. We can do this in a dignified manner, you are my people, all included, and there is a better way to serve you!
I am looking forward to meeting with you and I thank you for your support. Together we will start to return this city to success and prominence.
