My Top 3 Priorities

  • To marshal local funding, media, GOP club members, and new volunteers in supporting our local candidates in every office election
  • Build a program to find, attract, mentor the next generation of Republican candidates for municipal, county, and state offices
  • Bring small government Constitutional thinking to the building block level of the Republican Party in California

I was raised in the 'American First' environment of late 1950's/early 1960's Southern California. I started life as a poor immigrants' son, blessed to attend the best prep schools, and then to move on and to graduate from Cal Berkeley with a B.A. in History. Along the way, my predominately conservative values were based on the upbringing by hard-nosed Catholic parents who stress God, Family, Country...I was sorely tested at the University but with lots of help from my friends, my Church, the NROTC program, and the various full time jobs that I had while attending, I graduated late but with honors. Unable to continue to teach English and History in high school due to my own false expectations, I started work in the Hollywood hometown industry of movie and TV productions. There I worked hard and I dealt with lots of people, diverse work environments, and many inebriated workers in 1970's Hollywood. I used the lessons I learned in growing up, in college, and in other work places to become a better studio worker. It changed me into the thoughtful foreman and set dresser that I am today. Dozens of people still respond to my informal work calls; and hundreds of workers in the past generation have listened and learned while I 'show and teach" the On The Job skills and lessons, in this work environment that I call the BEST SUMMER job that I have had for 40 years. In short I evolved from a solitary worker to a competent and confident team leader who will work on big money projects or small commercials with the same enthusiasm and expertise.

And my conservatism evolved into other areas, economic and political because I had seen firsthand what it takes to have an individual succeed or not. There is no amount of government training program/ or unemployment benefits that can rival the feeling of working full time based on your own merits. The government rules had only stiffed the companies I worked for. And the taxes were astronomical for a guys with some accounting classes. I had paid 10% in overall taxes when I worked part time at near minimum wage, now I am paying almost 50% in taxes of all kinds from income, excise, sales, gasoline, and property.

In short, I am a people oriented person, who promotes his personal conservative values and principles because they are the best for both his political party and the Nation.
