"Making Life Simple Again"
Government at all levels has gotten too involved in our lives.
Those who seek to pass many of these laws think they are doing
us a favor, from their point of view. My basic thought on
passing a laws is: " It is Governments job to us protect us
from others, not from ourselves.
It is not the function of Government to keep the citizens from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the Government from falling into error. - Robert H. Jackson, US Supreme Court

Born: Baltimore, MD
Most of my early years were spent in the foster care system as my mother was deemed unfit to be a parent. Although I grew up with "other" families I was able to take some very valuable lessons from each of these people to formulate the morals of which I live by and have raised my family with.
I graduated high school in 1981 and had already signed an intention letter for a delayed enlistment in the U.S. Air Force. During my time in the military I served in Korea and Florida. I received an honorable discharge and moved to California.
Although I have never attained a graduate degree from any recognised university, I have been astute at apply principles to the manner in which I live. I don't live beyond my means and I would never ask anyone else to do something I wouldn't do. I have always believed that we need some sort of government but not one that has so much power and authority that it controls our daily lives. Through it all I have learned much which can and will benefit me as your next city councilman.
