I am proud to call the Antelope Valley my home and I look forward to having the opportunity to serve our district in the State Assembly. I am fully committed and ready to fight for the poor and middle class in ensuring a livable job wage while fighting for access to quality education.
Like all of you, I have faced challenges and unfortunate circumstances but that’s not a reason to accept the status quo of high unemployment and raising our children in poverty.
I believe the people of the 36th Assembly District are more important than the politics and their citizenship more pivotal than partisanship. That’s why I believe in people over politics and citizenship over partisanship.
My passion in serving our country as a U.S. Marine and serving in the State Assembly as a staffer for the 36th Assembly District makes this a natural progression for me.
As the Vice Chair of Organizational Development for the State Veterans Caucus, I have formed relationships in the state legislature in the lower house, upper house and in the third house.
I look forward to serving as your Assembly member and appreciate your support. Thank you.
