Serving Riverside County, First District residents, businesses, and area stakeholders is an honor and privilege. I take this appointed position seriously and will be actively present, representative, and relevant in my service.
I will be accountable, transparent, and committed in conducting thoughtful measured reviews. I will uphold the Planning Commission’s civic responsibility to implement Riverside County’s planning and development policies, plans and regulations. My actions will be grounded considering private property rights, land use compatibility, public amenities, effective infrastructure, along with sustainability of healthy human and natural environments for future generations.
My experience and values have been forged over the past thirty years of private and public service to local, regional and international organizations (i.e. Private Consulting Firms, Department of Interior, Department of Defense, National Conflict Resolution Center, Civilian Expeditionary Work Force Program, Ministry of Defense Advisor Program, as well as, volunteer appointments and or government agency ex-officio membership to a city design review board, a city airport commission, a regional airspace and land use council, and a district citizen advisor board).
These roles and experiences would not have been possible without the support and sacrifice of my wife, children, family and friends.
