Our top priority must be residents first...
not the interests of out of town developers. During my four years in office I have helped stop over-development and traffic gridlock from ruining our quality of life. I voted for smart development projects like Target, Courtney's Sandcastle and the new Ralph's.
I will continue to work against allowing the Toll Road to end at Avenida Pico as is shown on many maps for the new developments near Talega. The Toll Road's "segmented approach" will be a disaster for Talega homes near its terminus.
I have always voted to keep our fiscal house in order. The city currently has the highest bond rating possible. Let's keep it.
Special interests and PACS will try to influence this election by throwing money at candidates. I didn't accept campaign contributions of more than $99 in 2008 and I won't in 2012.
My wife Pam and I are 20+ year residents of San Clemente. Our children graduated from San Clemente High. I support the Boys and Girls Club, Little League, Triton sports, the San Clemente Educational Foundation and Casa Romantica.
I retired as a commercial airline captain in 2008 flying transpacific routes. I graduated from the US Naval Academy at Annapolis. I served in the US Navy and flew the F-4 Phantom jet fighter from the USS Roosevelt making 170 carrier landings.
Vote for me and you'll get a voice of reason & continued fiscal responsibility.
