Biographical Info:
As a first-generation immigrant, successful businessman, father, and man of faith, I have served my community for the last 10 years as councilman and mayor. As mayor, I made Walnut one of the best places to raise a family. I supported our public schools by maintaining its ranking as the top 1% in the nation, was fiscally responsible to produce city reserves, and made Walnut one of the safest cities to live in: the national violent crime rate is 3x that of Walnut. As your congressman, I will improve the economy, secure our borders, protect the unborn, advocate for education, and defend our constitution. Because God and you come first. With the passing of my wife and loved ones, I determined to use my energy, talents, and efforts toward serving my community. Over the last decade, while raising my two beautiful daughters, I have dedicated my life to helping others through my volunteer work: I've distributed food, supplies, and other resources to thousands of people in need. While we may all have different political, religious, or social views, we all share a common interest to pursue a better future. My goal is to provide safe neighborhoods, good jobs, and a place to comfortably grow old and raise our kids. We need leaders with proven results. As your congressman, congressional district 38 will be a beachhead of freedom for the rest of the nation, and the world, to follow. I am asking for your vote because you come first, and I will work to better your future and our country.
When I came to America 40 years ago as a first-generation immigrant, I didn’t even speak English. I immediately began taking English lessons and working toward my American Dream. America is my country! How would I be able to look at myself in the mirror knowing I could have done more to serve my community? I have served the City of Walnut for over 10 years as both councilman and mayor, and in that time I have always considered my constituents my bosses. I would like to do for District 38 what I've done for my city. I've made Walnut one of the nicest cities to raise a family and do business. The violent crime rate in the U.S. is 3x that of Walnut, our schools are ranked top 1% in the nation, and we have 198% in reserves for the city.

N* This is against my religious beliefs and goes against women's rights.
