My Top 3 Priorities

  • Lower utility rates,
  • traffic and safty issues
  • public safty




15 years ago I was elected to The Colton City Council District 5. I served for 7 years. I lead the charge to rebuild our infrastructure, our electric system, sewers system, streets and waterlines. I also started a speed hump program for our residential streets to help slow down traffic. I work to put our city on the right path. Unfortunately the city leaders have slipped back into their old way. I am running to get us back on the right path, again.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

We need to take care of the Colton we have today, but we need to look beyond; building a better Colton for tomorrow; a community that we and our future generations can be proud to call home.  To do this we need a strong city council that will not only have a handle on the present but an eye on the future; a council that will work together to bring stability and vitality to our city.

I will work hard to:

         Lower utility rates.

         Bring smart economic development and jobs to provide the revenue for generations to come.

·         Address Traffic and Safety issues.

·         Secure strong financial stability.

·         Address State and Federal mandates that could adversely affect our city.

·         Streamline city services as well as rebuild our infrastructure.


I believe with my past experience in public office and my strong work ethic, we can get this accomplished.  I am committed to making the residents of District 5 and the City of Colton a priority and will fight for what you deserve. We need to be proactive.


I would be honored to serve District 5 and with your vote we can build a better Colton.
