Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am a San Jacinto resident and father of three children preparing to attend SJUSD. I have successfully worked in a cohesive military environment for 15 years and currently serve as a Master Sergeant(E-7) in the Air Force Reserves. I am a proud graduate of San Jacinto Unified School District and Mt. San Jacinto College.

I am an experienced Aircraft Quality Control Inspector willing to bring the San Jacinto School Board a broad perspective which includes a foundation of service before self; an ability to be objective and fair; and an appreciation of the diverse needs of SJUSD including the community.

I will bring to SJUSD an open mind and the objectivity essential in performing all of the responsibilities of a school board member. I am eager to devote the time and energy that this community deserves in fulfilling the duties of a board member. I am a strong proponent of class size reduction and accessibility to advanced technological devices for all students.
