Experienced Leadership Working For
Mayor of Pleasanton
It is my great honor to ask you for your support of my candidacy for Mayor of Pleasanton in the 2020 election.
I've worked hard over the past 25 years as your representative on the city council, commissions, task forces and committees taking on the challenges, facing the tough decisions and working towards supporting what is best for Pleasanton, today and for our future generations.
I believe I have served this city the best I can. I've done my homework, studied the issues, met with both sides on many issues before the council and then voted for what is best for all residents of Pleasanton.
I'm often asked why I serve: it started when I joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1976, and to this day, serving our country and now our city is ingrained in who I am.
Thank you for your trust, your support and your guidance. I will be honored to have your vote and to be your Mayor.
I'm a 30 year resident of Pleasanton, living here with my wife of 36 years, Josine. We have a daughter, Joi, who was born and raised in Pleasanton, a Cal Berkeley Grad and is now a successful executive in the tech world, living in San Francisco.
I am a former Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, having served in the Marine Air Wing from 1975 to 1980. I have a degree in Radio and Television Broadcasting and have worked as a Media Producer for 38 years, running my own production company, Spring Street Studios HD, located in Pleasanton.
My hobbies include bicycling, hiking, SCUBA diving, backpacking, photography and when the opportunity arises (seldom since I was elected to the Council eight years ago...) reading a good book.
