Over the last year, I’ve confided with you my life story, how I experienced homelessness and poverty growing up, but through hard work and perseverance I became a paramedic/first responder and worked in underserved communities. I’ve listened as you shared with me what matters most to you, and I have devoted my campaign to working on these issues.
I told you how I continued to pursue further education while working full time, and how I obtained both a Master’s degree in History and a law degree.
I talked about how my wife and I started a small business educating Emergency Medical Technicians and grew it into the largest online school of its kind, now employing people across several states.
I shared about my three wonderful children attending local schools, and our work as a family to foster and rehabilitate small animals from our area and near the border.
I’ve shown you examples of my community involvement, in opposing corruption, the North River Farms development and unchecked urban sprawl in Oceanside.
I’ve connected with you on the campaign trail and out in the community and listened to you tell me what matters most to you.
I’ve shared my experience as an Incident Commander and public health educator during COVID-19, and I’ve kept you informed with the latest science and information to help you and your family stay safe.
And finally, I provided to you my plans for addressing the biggest issues facing our city:
- homelessness and the housing crisis
- public safety and COVID-19 health policy, navigating public health crises using common sense
- providing economic support for small businesses and the public during the pandemic
- ending corruption plaguing our city and increasing transparency
Getting rid of corruption also means that we need to elect new leaders, particularly those who are not accepting corporate or special interest money, who are not career politicians, and who represent WE THE PEOPLE.
I raised my hand to run for Mayor of Oceanside because I want to bring a new era of accountability, transparency, and solutions-oriented thinking to our city. We need to elect someone who will listen to all sides, bring together all stakeholders, and make decisions based on what is right for our city–not just what is right for their donors or their careers.
I would be honored to have your vote!
