The status quo won't change. It's time to vote the parties out.

Universal Healthcare

Nobody should ever lose their home because they get cancer, or be forced to choose between paying for their child’s college and living long enough to see them graduate. This is a moral issue, but it will also be cheaper this way. Healthcare cannot be a "free market." It's a captive market. To understand why, please click below.

 
Percentage of political contributions by the top .01% (top) and share of income by the top 1% (bottom) over time. This is not a coincidence.

Get Money Out Of Politics

Billionaires pay to elect candidates from both corrupt parties every election in order to get what they want: More for them, and less for everybody else. I'm not taking their money, because I'm only interested in working for you.

Take Care Of Our Veterans. Now!

Not only should war veterans get the care and support they need, when they need it, but their income taxes should be considered “paid in full” forever. They've already paid enough. And a loss of future government tax revenue would be a great disincentive to go to war in the first place.

 
Top: It used to be that government workers got security and benefits while sacrificing the higher pay they could get in the private sector. This is no longer true. Bottom: Congress has no idea what it's like to live in the real world with us.

Base Congressional Pay On Ours

I want to bring congress back to the real world by basing congressional pay on the median wage in the districts they represent. And I'm no hypocrite, so I'll be donating all of my pay above the median wage in our district - close to $100,000 per year - back to our district.

 
 
 

I am you.

I've lived in (or very near) District 39 my entire life. My parents moved to Chino Hills in 1977 when I was 3 months old, and I graduated from Ayala High School in Chino Hills in 1995. I've worked most of my life since then in the motorcycle industry as a journalist and photographer.

I've been fortunate to travel the world for my job, and it's amazing how similar people are everywhere. They might look a little different, or believe in different things, but in the end, people are people.

I am you. You are me. We are the same. We all want the same basic things:

To feel like we matter; that our opinions and beliefs are important, and that we have the power to make the changes we want in our little part of the world.

To feel safe; that we, and our family and friends, are safe, and if there's danger, that we have the means and ability to protect ourselves and each other.

To feel that we belong; that we are part of something bigger and more important than ourselves, and that our community accepts us just as we are.

All of us are the same. People are people.

we're In this together

I can't do this without your help.

There is honor in public service, and it would be my honor to serve you and the rest of the people in our district. But as an independent, I don't have a party to help me, and I don't have access to the party donors and infrastructure. This is a true grassroots campaign. I am not a "protest vote." I can win this race.

So please, read my policy positions, come see me when I'm in your area, and if you believe, as I do, that I have what it takes to start to bring accountability to our government, please consider volunteering with my campaign, or donating to it.

I'm up against two behemoth parties with massive corporate backing, so I'm going to need all the help I can get.

 
 
I plan to win this race, and when the day comes that I exit my role as a public servant, I plan to do so as the same, middle-class guy I was when I entered. I believe the reward of public service is the service itself.
