Community Activities

Past President , Member, Galt Sunrise Rotary (2013–current)
Board Member, Micke Grove Zoological Society (2017–current)


I've lived in the Galt for 16 years with my wife and family. I retired after 32 years as Longshoreman/Clerk at the Port of Stockton. As a member of Galt Sunrise Rotary and a current Board Member for Micke Grove Zoological Society. I've been involved in community projects and organizations as a volunteer.

  I was a member of The Galt Planning Commission during the General Plan update in 2009, and I've been a champion for smart growth for our city. I'm looking foward to being an active participant on our City Council as we continue to grow as a city. I feel it's important that we consider expanding the business footprint for our existing businesses that might need to expand, and those that might be considering Galt as a new partner,

 If elected, I will donate back 50% of any and all compensation I receive as a member of the Galt City Council to the Non-Profits in our community, as I believe they've been an important partner in how we have developed as a community. I  want the Non-Profits to feel they're a part of everthing that is great about Galt, just like you and our family do. If you have questions or concerns call me (209) 329-2253.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

To be open and assessable to the tax payers you repersent, to often after an election elected officals often forget the promises they make. As an elected City Council Representative you must make decisions that will take into account the effects it will have on everyone and work with the people involved and be open to change to make successful decisions for the city.
