I want all citizens of the 51st District to feel certain their homes, neighborhoods, schools, and churches are safe… and there’s nothing more important than the safety and well-being of our children.
Recently, we’ve sadly seen the need to act more decisively on issues of public safety. This is especially true because the 51st District includes the entire southern border of California, the U.S. border with Mexico.
To stay safe, we must be strong in …
I devoted my 31-1/2 year career in the United States Marine Corps to the defense of our nation, our Constitution, and our people, in times of war and peace.
I served four “combat deployments” out of a total ten deployments.
I earned the highest enlisted rank possible – Sergeant Major. (Only 2% of enlisted Marines achieve this rank.)
I served for two years at Joint Task Force, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GTMO).
GTMO houses the most dangerous terrorists on the planet. I’ve looked them in the eye and I’m not afraid to do everything needed to keep you, your family, and all the citizens of our District safe.
National Defense is at the core of my being.
I’ll fight for it.
Border security is critically important to the security of the United States.
I have toured the border with Senior Border Patrol Agent Chris Harris, who has 24 years of service with the U.S. Border Patrol.
We spent five hours viewing and discussing the dangers and solutions for securing our Border.
Here’s what I saw and heard…
I recently encountered an older woman who asked me to stop and pray with her a moment. She was deeply concerned, especially considering recent criminal acts which have led to the unexpected loss of innocent American lives. We prayed. Then she went on to tell me she did not feel safe in her own home after dark.
Children are afraid to go to school, and parents are hesitant to let their children go to the park.
That’s no way for Americans to live!
Our local law enforcement officers are putting their lives on the line every day to keep us safe…
We must support them in every way.
I’ll work to keep you safe!
