Why I'm Running for City Council

I’m running for Whittier City Council because public service is an important part of who I am – and it always has been. I organized a trip to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina in college. I helped organize Grads Give Back Day as a law student. My experience as a Marine Judge Advocate, and later representing homeless and disabled veterans, cemented my belief that service is not something you do, but a way of life. My wife and I chose to raise our family in Whittier, and I’m running for the City Council to serve the extended Whittier family I’ve been fortunate to join.

I love Whittier and all it offers: Uptown, Hellman Park, Central Park, the historic homes, and our community spirit. I believe we need to do everything we can to protect and strengthen our city and the opportunities it provides our families to live, work, and play. Let’s work together to make our city safer, our businesses more prosperous, and our neighborhoods more livable. This will be a campaign centered on honest conversation and the issues that matter most.

I look forward to meeting you and your family over the next few months as we approach Election Day in April 2018. Thank you for your support.
