Biography

I have lived and grown up in Manteca my entire life. I've attended elementary and high school in Manteca, and graduated from California State University, Stanislaus, with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. My parents and grandparents owned and operated a small business in Manteca for many years, and I had the privilege of spending my childhood growing up in this environment around family and friends in the community. Manteca has been my home for my whole life, and I want to make Manteca my home for the rest of my life as I want to raise my future family here. I know what our city needs and I know what the next generation of residents in Manteca needs, and I will do everything I can to secure a bright future for our community.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I am a conservative. I am a strong believer in individual freedom, fiscal responsibilty, and support for our small businesses. I believe our city can be free and prosperous when our government gets out of the way and lets our citizens be free to pursue their own destiny. As a Councilman, I will get government off the backs of our people and our businesses so they can thrive and prosper.
