Candidates' Statement

My wife and I are proud parents of two children who have attended San Marcos Unified School District from Kindergarten through High School. Later they graduated Palomar, UCSD, USC and Cornell. My wife earned her Master of Education degree from the University of Oregon and I hold a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I was a successful product marketing manager with Hewlett-Packard and I am the owner of a small business in San Marcos. I also served on the San Marcos Budget Review Committee, the San Marcos Economic Development Corporation, and the Oversite Committee of the Palomar Medical Center.

I would like to use my many years of work and child-rearing experience to provide a better education for every student in the district. I want to see more education decisions being made at the local level, closer to the problem, rather than at the state and federal level. I want to give a greater voice to students and parents who desire the best education possible for their children. I also want to represent the district residents who may not have children in school, but look for the best value for their tax dollars. I humbly ask for your vote. Thank you.
