I was born and raised in Sacramento, attending local public schools, riding RT, and utilizing our local parks and rivers. I have seen the boom of certain neighborhoods, while others have struggled. Sadly, Sacramento’s richest and poorest census tracks are less than a mile apart in the Arden Arcade area. I’m running with a determined eye to closing these disparities, focused on equalizing opportunity.
As a combat wounded Veteran, father, and senior congressional aide, I believe I have the record of service, dedication to community, and passion to shake the status quo and deliver for our families. As a lifelong Sacramentan and dedicated public servant, I will fight for our vulnerable and help deliver the promise of Sacramento to every corner of our county. Plus, I have built and developed the relationships with stakeholders in the eastern portions of our county to foster an open conversation on how we can move forward together.
