"I have lived in the Inland Empire most of my adult life.  I was born in Riverside and raised in Moreno Valley and Hemet.  I have seen a lot of development and change.  We all know that change is coming to Calimesa, but the real question is what is that change going to look like.  I served as a member of the Calimesa Parks, Trails and Community Services Commission and was appointed in 2019 as a member of the City Council with the desire to help lead our city into the future by thinking carefully about our city's growth and development.  As a family man with three school aged children, I am personally invested in Calimesa.  We all want our city to flourish as we move forward.  To do this, I believe that we need a fresh perspective, some new ideas and some healthy communication between our officials and our community.  My experience as a local education and leader has always been centered on working with others to solve problems in a respectful, collaborative way, with character and with a good dose of common sense."
