As a Program Manager in the high-tech industry for over 30 years, I have had the privilege of managing complex multi-million dollar projects comprised of diverse teams from around the world. As an entrepreneur I have developed new products and negotiated investments and contracts with manufacturers, distributors and suppliers. Skills that I can bring to this position include: Project planning, Problem solving, Analytical skills, Requirements gathering & interpretation and excellent communication skills.
Also as a 30+ year resident of San Lorenzo Valley and father of 3, I have seen the evolution and growth of our valley community struggle with our existing infrastructure. Maintaining our Water system in a manner that is acceptable, safe and sufficient for our needs, will be a priority for myself, and us all given the economic times and limitations that will be forced on all our federal, state and local governments. As a Veteran and Staff Sergeant in the USAF during the Vietnam Era, I view this opportunity to serve as another chance to give back to my community in appreciation of its support over the past 40 years. If elected to this office I will serve with energy and purpose on behalf of our community.
