Councilman, Ward 4
In 2006 my wife of 30 years and I chose to live and raise our two daughters in Thornton. We proudly call Thornton our home. Serving my country and community is second nature to me. I believe that serving the people requires every bit of experience to fulfill the needs and wants of what is really important to a community. As a United States Marine, I have had the honor to serve my country in the Persian Gulf War. In addition to being a proud veteran, I have been a police officer for over 23 years, protecting and serving the people of New York City, Los Angeles, and Colorado where I currently have the privilege to serve as a Westminster police officer. Over the course of my career as a first responder, I have had the opportunity to serve local communities and learn firsthand how to respond to any given situation. My experiences have provided me with an acute understanding of the needs of a community and I am thankful that this has sharpened my leadership skills to put forth the effort to lead the great City of Thornton and represent its citizens by being their voice and seeing their vision.
I firmly believe I can uphold the responsibility to successfully work with and for the citizens of Thornton to achieve the goals we set for our city. I am dedicated to ensuring that we continue positive development in our city and we see forth the efforts to come that will test my true leadership abilities. I will remain a resounding advocate for safer and cleaner streets, thriving community land, smoother roads, education, and ensuring continued positive support of our veterans. This is my home and my efforts are for my hundred thousand plus neighbors. We all share a common vision, to live, work, and raise a family in a place we are proud of.
