I have always been proud to call Southwest Chula Vista my home.  As a lifelong resident, educator, homeowner, and City Commissioner, my commitment to the community is undeniable.  I am running for City Council because I have the right combination of leadership experience and love for this community that will keep Chula Vista moving in the right direction.

As your Councilman, I will work to protect, promote, and improve our community and neighborhoods.  By investing in our parks, revitalizing our older neighborhoods, finding solutions for homelessness, and strengthening public safety, we can achieve a higher quality of life for all residents of Chula Vista and welcome new businesses, residents, and visitors.

I hope that I can win your trust and your vote for City Council
