Responsible change you can count on. New leadership delivering results for our community.
We choose to live in Morgan Hill because this is a special place. Ensuring it stays that way while building a community that is forward thinking, well run, a safe and inviting place to work live and play, and ultimately a place our kids can and will want to stay and raise their families is important to me. That means responsible growth that will make us economically strong. This campaign is about that balance, drawing on the successes of today while building a community for tomorrow.
Having served as your Council Member for more than 7 years, I have the experience and know-how to get things done. Morgan Hill is a great city, but there is still much to do. I am committed to building on efforts to retain current business and attracting new business to provide more jobs here; to addressing traffic and public safety issues; to working toward better public transportation; to fostering opportunities for a faster, more responsive internet that local businesses need to thrive and that our residents depend on.
I am about active leadership. I will work toward key goals that keep pace with community needs now and into the future. I will continue my collaborative approach of building productive partnerships at the local, regional, and state level that benefit the community.
I don't talk about myself often but I want you to know that community service is part of my DNA. I really care about our community and all our families. I am a firefighter and my wife, Andrea, is a first responder and paramedic. We have a beautiful two year old daughter who we want to grow up safe and one day live and work here.
Please let me fight for you and join me in my campaign. See you all soon.
