Biography

I have lived, worked and attended school in the San Fernando Valley for nearly 40 years. I know and understand the intersts and concerns of the residents and business owners of the district and feel prepared to represent them in the legislature. I left school at the age of 16 and spent the next 20 years working at a variety of jobs to support myself as I earned my GED and worked toward my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees.

Political Beliefs

I have a passion for social and economic justice, equality and support for working people. I grew up in what would be described as a lower middle class family. My first "job" was answering phones at my father's auto repare shop at the age of 10. My life experience will inform my work in the legislature.  

School Safety

Summary

I have proposed a 5-Part Plan for School Safety
