Biographical Info:
I grew up in Arcadia and have resided in the city since 1967. I was a deputy sheriff at Temple Sheriff's Station for 18 years, serving a large portion of the 49th assembly district. I retired in 2017 as a sergeant with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. My wife is also a retired sergeant with Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. We have four sons, one of which followed in our footsteps and is a deputy sheriff. I am a proud member of a law enforcement family as well as a proud resident in the 49th Assembly District.
To bring back common sense in legislature, fight for the safety of my community/residents and keep Californians safe again. I want to bring God back into our lives and reduce overspending.
