I grew up in Orange County and have lived here in the 39th District my entire life. Today, I am honored to serve on the Orange County Board of Supervisors.
During my career I built a successful litigation firm with offices in Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside and Los Angeles counties to help families and small business owners, and had the honor of being elected to three terms as Councilman and Mayor of Fullerton before serving on the Orange County Board of Supervisors with multiple terms as acting Chairman.
As an outsider entering the Board of Supervisors, I used my legal background and common sense Conservative approach to move Orange County forward by investing in modern infrastructure to create jobs, revolutionizing the county’s pension system and fighting to save millions of local dollars by securing a massive federal loan towards the 405 freeway expansion project as Chairman of the Orange County Transportation Authority. I also served as Chairman of Southern California Regional Rail Authority (Metrolink) reinvigorating the rail system to increase ridership, building new stations and bringing Orange County the cleanest, most powerful locomotives in the United States.
During such a critical time in our nation’s history the people of the 39th District need a proven fighter and winner in Washington. In Congress I’ll tackle the toughest challenges and I won’t back down. I’ll fight to reduce traffic, fix our aging infrastructure, and keep our taxes low, while keeping our streets safe.
My wife, Sharon, and I have lived for 19 years in the same home in the 39th District and have three beautiful children: Kathryn, Shane, and Amanda. I’m proud to be running to serve you in Congress.
I will use all my energy to fight for Orange County
