Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Proteger la limitación al impuesto sobre la propiedad de la Propuesta 13
  • Derogar los aumentos recientemente promulgados a los impuestos a las gasolinas y vehículos
  • Devolver las apelaciones de impuestos al BOE para que sean justos y transparentes.

Taxpayer's Advocate. I am the Chief Financial Officer for the California Taxpayers Action Network (CalTAN). We are a state-wide, all-volunteer non-profit group that promotes fiscal responsibility and transparency in local government.  Our efforts have resulted in more transparency in public school construction ontracts and the bonds that finance them. We most recently opposed Proposition 51 (along with Governor Brown) as a give-away to well-connected developers at the expense of taxpayers.

I am a recognized taxpayer advocate by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and a strong supporter of Proposition 13. I support the repeal of the recent gas tax and vehicle fee hike.

Tech Guy for Tax Board. My day job is in the information technology department at major Southern California Academic Medical Center. I help maintain the electronic health record software that is the basis for the healthcare provided by the Center. 

Tax Industry Experience. For eight years, I worked for CCH Computax, the largest tax return preparation company at the time serving CPAs, modifying computer programs to calculate tax returns for both Federal and State income tax returns, including California with special emphasis on corporate and partnership tax returns. 

Former Business Owner. For 20 years, I ran my own computer consulting firm specializing in custom desktop database applications and Microsoft Office customization. My small business clients represented diverse industries such as banking, automotive repair, bindery and postal mail preparation, water filtration and distressed real estate.

I am a recognized as a taxpayer advocate and have been endorsed by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association for this office before. 

Public Service. I currently serve on the City of Torrance Planning Commission. I have also served on the City of Torrance Water Commission. I understand how boards and commissions work, their limits and how to make them productive. Hint: It's not by missing meetings or coming to meetings unprepared. In my five and half years of service on these two commissions, I have not missed a meeting. I read the briefing material and come prepared to ask questions and make decisions.

Personal. My wife Janice and I are Los Angeles County homeowners. Janice teaches ninth grade with Classical Conversations. We have two college-age daughters — Kirsten and Victoria. Kirsten is of a Porland, Oregon ballet company. Victoria will be a junior at Hillsdale College this fall.

I have raised money for Muscular Dystrophy, delivered presents to children of prisoners at Christmas through Project Angel Tree and mentored young men and women through Junior Achievement. 

History. Four years ago, I ran for this office, first as a write-in candidate and then in the top two runoff in November 2014. I lost to the incumbent by 300,000 votes out of 1.2 million cast. It was because of the excesses of that incumbent who is termed out that the Board of Equalization was gutted and its important taxpayer protection transfered to the executive branch. 

Mission. I love this great country and our great state. I'm running now to restore the taxpayer protections of transparency and fairness to taxpayers that was taken from the Board of Equalization. You can read more about it here in the Orange County Register.

I'm ready to serve for the benefit of my fellow citizens.

Filosofía política

My Seven Governing Principles


1.  The Free Enterprise System, not Government, is the most productive supplier of human needs. It is the individual with minimal government burdens who raises the standard of living off all by supplying the needs of others while providing for himself.

2.  All individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, opportunity and the fruits of their labor.

3.  The poor escape poverty by work—not Government spending. Handouts breed dependence.

4.  Individual liberty is preserved when constitutional limitations are respected and observed. Individual responsibility nurtures a healthy culture of family, community and work.

5.  Every dollar Government spends is taken from a hardworking taxpayer.  Taxes paid by business are passed along in higher prices.

6.  Rewarding the powerful and well connected at the expense of the ordinary, or favoring the impoverished or minority over the wealthy or majority is equally wrong.

7.  Our Nation’s moral character depends on faith in, and freedom to serve, our Creator, Almighty God.
