Other facts

I have been a 49 year resident of San Clemente. With my wife Alice we have raised two children. Jim is a Special Officer with the Orange County Sheriff's Department and daughter Ingrid who works for a mortgage company and we have 5 grandchildren living in San Clemente.

I retired as a Fire Captain with OCFA after 36 years of service in 2009. 15 years ago, you elected me to City Council. In the ensuing years I have championed your causes with responsible, determined leadership.

I share your concern for the issues that are shaping the future of San Clemente. I have worked to enhance Fire/ Paramedic Service and Police Protection, Rail Safety Quiet Zone, Gang Enforcement, Parks, Traffic Circulation, Code Enforcement, Historic and Coastal Preservation, Ocean Water Quality, Business opportunities and affordable Senior Housing.

The Centennial General Plan, restoration of the Ole Hanson Beach Club, Beach Restrooms and the completion of Courtney’ s Sand Castle with a balanced budget are high on my list of priorities.

I have placed a high priority on requiring high quality, sustainable development in our community. These issues will continue to guide us in the future and with your vote I will continue to "Move San Clemente Forward"

Jim is the anti-resident but pro-outside business candidate. He has unethical endorsements by the chamber of commerce which is city funded. Notice that Jim has premium sign placements on businesses....he's driven by special interest groups not the needs of residents.
