My Top 3 Priorities

  • Balanced Budget
  • Neighborhood protection
  • Balanced Development



I served as a proud member of the Los Angeles Police Department for 29 years.  I worked in various assignments to include: Youth Services Officer and Community Liaison Officer (Office of the Chief). 

I have extensive experience in bringing the community and local agencies together to find solutions that address problems to make a difference.  I’ve worked with the Explorers as a Youth Services Program Coordinator for nine years and I was successful in building strong community ties with local businesses and residents to build support for the programs that I oversaw.  I know the value of investing in our youth through collaborative efforts with the school district and partnerships with local non-profit organizations.  

I have been serving the Burbank community for over 13 years.  In 2003, I served as a Police Commissioner and in 2013 elected to the Burbank City Council. I respectfully ask for your vote for re-election to City Council to continue to work hard on the ongoing challenges we face:
