It is with honor that I have chosen to run for San Bruno City Council in 2020.

After much thought and consideration, I am running for San Bruno City Council 2020. This is a very important election for our city as we are on the brink of financial challenges, the likes of which we have not seen in many years. There is a growing feeling of community division that threatens our ability to function and thrive. I am very proud of the campaign I ran last year, but I also heard loud and clear how I can better serve you and this city.

I’m a proud San Bruno native and 45-year resident of our beautiful city. I live in Crestmoor Park with my three daughters: Elissia, a recent graduate of Capuchino HS, Paulina, now in the 7th grade at St. Robert’s School, and Valentina, a 1st grader at St. Roberts School. As a young man I attended St Robert’s School as well. I moved on to St Ignatius College Prep and attended Sonoma State, Golden Gate University and UCLA in preparation for my Real Estate career.

San Bruno is not just my home, it is my lifelong community. A growing business hub, and a great place to raise a family, the city has helped shape who I am today. And I am so grateful to have this opportunity to continue to serve.

I have served several years on the San Bruno Parks and Recreation Commission and currently serve as a Board member and two-term President of StarVista, one of San Mateo County’s largest non-profits, offering counseling, crisis prevention and youth housing where I paid close attention to budgets and effective policy decisions. As the past President and current President elect of the Rotary Club of San Bruno, I worked closely with the community to serve their needs. In my two terms as St. Robert’s School Board President, and as an active participant with the school’s Men’s Club, I saw, first-hand, how leadership is formed through service. Volunteering for the school and parish has allowed me to witness some of the most selfless individuals in our community.

Like many of you, I know that we have much to be proud of in our city and we face many challenges ahead as well. I am determined and ready to face these challenges for all of us. I believe I am well suited to serve you and our city and collaborate with the Council and community to lead San Bruno forward.

If elected to our City Council, I will put my vast experience, accumulated knowledge and business experience to work for you. As a father, businessman, homeowner, volunteer, and active community organizer over many years, I have the skills and commitment needed to strengthen and enliven San Bruno. This election, I am asking for your vote, as we work together to honor our city’s legacy while forging its bright future.
