Arcadia, my hometown, is a special place, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Arcadia City Council. I love this city.

I was born and raised here, and my wife and I chose to stay and raise our family here.  Arcadia is our home, and I’m committed to doing everything I can to keep Arcadia a great place to raise a family, build a business, and enjoy life.

I don’t support negative politics and nasty campaigns.  I do not have to.  I have served the Arcadia Community for over 40 years.  I have a reputation of being fair and honest – telling it like it is and standing on my principles. I strive to bring all of us together because I firmly believe together we can do great things for our city.

Please take some time to look through the website. If you have any questions, click the contact button above to get in touch with me, or send a message through my Facebook page.

I look forward to earning your vote this April.  It would be a tremendous honor to continue serving you on the city council in my quests to Keep Arcadia Great and Keep Arcadia Safe. Thank you!

Public Safety

This is and always has been my first priority. The number one responsibility of the City Councilmembers is to keep our residents safe.

Protecting Taxpayers

It’s Your Money: Government has a responsibility to use taxpayers’ hard-earned money wisely.

Property Values

I understand and appreciates that a person’s home is their “American Dream.”

One Arcadia

When I served as Mayor, I brought our diverse community, the City Council and School District Board together.

Hometown Values

My values are Arcadia’s values – respect for family, local control, fiscal responsibility, and quality education.

Our Families

Arcadia has a motto: “A Community of Homes.”  To me Arcadia is a “Community of Families.”
