My Top 3 Priorities

  • We have a very collaborative board & GM that get things done; I want to keep that positive momentum moving forward!
  • During my time with the CSD we have MORE THAN DOUBLED the amount of acreage owned; preserving more open space!
  • Actively pursuing more land acquisition, Bass Lake Park development, negotiating the old golf course property, cell signal at village green, community safety & more!



As the current CSD Board President, an El Dorado Hills businessman, and having two children actively involved in the CSD and local school facilities, I am able to take in the full spectrum of the community and its values.

During my time with the CSD, I’ve more than doubled CSD parkland through acquisition and dedications, which means more open space for our great community. I have put the district on an environmental sustainability path, solar array, car chargers, LED, automation, and more with extremely low fiscal impact. I have cultivated fiscal responsibility within the District by correcting public pension liability for the District. Through ad hoc committees and personal outreach, I have established extensive community collaboration efforts with stakeholders and other community groups. I have proven my commitment to EDH with 100% board meeting attendance, and I truly feel we have a cohesive Board that progressively works towards sustaining and enhancing our amazing community.

I ask for your vote to continue this positive path the Board and staff have put in place.
