My wife, Joy, and I have been married for 25 years and have lived in Peoria for the past 16 years raising three children. We are immersed in our community, schools and recreational programs. We take great pride in working in our community to make our community which will provide a wholesome life for all families.
As former Chief Financial Officer for the Peoria Unified School District, I was responsible for the direction of the sound fiscal policies that contributed to PUSD’s stellar reputation. I successfully managed a staff of over 400 people and an annual budget over $200 million. In addition, I also bring over 20 years of leadership experience with United Parcel Service and US Airways.
As a seasoned leader, I know how to work through layers of government to get things accomplished quickly and efficiently. My experience has taught me the value of building consensus to address important issues with logical outcomes.
I pledge to put my principles of honor and integrity to work for the citizens of Peoria by:
Advocating for common sense solutions to the issues that affect our day-to-day lives; Listening to the residents and re-connecting City Council to the people of the Palo Verde District; Addressing citizen concerns immediately, with reason, truth and fairness.
