Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Return integrity to Mayor's seat, under corruption investigation for 2 years following arrest, search warrants
  • Public Safety; supported by Deputy Sheriffs, DA Investigators, Firefighters & Paramedics
  • Improve the Jobs/Housing Balance, Bring our fair share of taxes back to the AV; Supported by Business & Labor



Steve has honorably served the residents of Palmdale as Couincilman since 2003, following 13 years as planning commissioner, earning him the Larry Chimbole Lifetime Public Service Award

Steve had a distringuished 32 year carreer with LAFD before recently retiring. He received the Valor Award for heroism by the LACoFD.

As Audit Committee Chairman, Steve has identified millions of dollars in hidden reserves from your Landscape Maintenence funds, and called for detailed audits of those accounts.

He represents the community on many agencies. He is our representative to AVTA Bus, where he spearheaded improved local and commuter services to EAFB, Mojave and Valencia, as well as the AV Campus Express, and to the VA with reduced fares for seniors, military, veterans and students.

At the AQMD he's worked to improve air quality, bring rebates to AV residents, and grants saving local businesses millions of dollars. At the Sanitation Board, he won the fight to return bond refinance savings to the residents!

Steve is the North Patrol Division rep to the Sheriff Liability Oversight Board, where he works to improve policies for better community relations and reduced liability costs.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

I believe most of us want the same things; safe neighborhoods and improved quality of life for our families, good local jobs, quality community programs and servicesm, and lower taxes. We do that, and can always do better with your input. 

We are better able to accomplish these things through collaboratiove governance - working with the community, neighbors, and other agencies in a positive manner. There's a difference between cooaperation vs capitulation. We can disagree without being disagreeable. But the current administration's attitude of antagonism is counter-productive. Since his replacement from most boards, we are making amazing prgress for our community.

Government should seek better input from the community. I believe we need a Parks, Recs and Arts Commission; a citizens committee to regularly review the elements of our city General Plan, such as Public Safety, Recreation, Transportaion and such.
