I was born and raised in the Outer Mission in San Francisco. I graduated from St. Ignatius High School, the University of San Francisco and UC Berkeley Law School. I have been a business and tax lawyer in San Francisco and Silicon Valley for over 35 years. I want to bring this real world experience to Sacramento to fix serious, real world problems like overtaxation, education, infrastructure.

The two most important jobs of state government are education and public safety, and we are failing at both. Our K-12 schools have fallen to 38th in the country, and several low-income high schools suffer drop-out rates of 50% or more. This is a disaster that we must address. We have pretty much legalized thefts of up to $950 in goods. This has led to an explosion of car break- ins, and a new wave of shoplifting that threatens many small retailers. We raise taxes, repeatedly, but the problems just get bigger.

Our streets are now crowded with people we call “homeless.” But most of these people suffer from alcoholism, drug addiction and mental health problems. They are not “homeless,” they are “helpless.” They live, suffer and die on the street like animals. We need policies that move these broken people into medical treatment that can deal with their real problems.

I am not a career politician, and I would bring a fresh, outsider’s perspective to government. I would work to bring common sense solutions and efficiency to government. There is a better way.
