Hello, friends.

It is with mixed feelings that I make the following announcement:

I will not run for re-election in the March City Council election.


After a long career, I have decided it is time to retire and give someone else a chance to serve the City in this capacity. I plan to devote more time to my wife and family, and I have a few other things that will keep me busy. I will also stay involved in city issues.

I will post a lengthier statement in the coming days, but for now, thank you for your encouragement and support over the years.  And let me make it clear:  I don't plan to slow down in my remaining time on the City Council. As they say in the track world, you have to run through the tape!


More than ever, I remain committed to you, the people of San Dimas.

After all, It's YOUR Town!

San Dimas It's Your Town!

(Written for the 2020 campaign.  Still true in 2023.)

San Dimas is a wonderful community, and it’s an honor to serve as your Councilmember.


My commitment remains unchanged:  We must foster strong neighborhoods, create a vibrant downtown, support small businesses, promote parks, trails, trees, and open space, provide programs for everyone from toddlers to seniors, and preserve our small-town feel – all built on a foundation of solid finances, top-notch public safety, and good infrastructure.


Over the past four years, we accomplished park renovations, major roadwork, and a downtown facelift.  We saved a historic wall, allowed microbreweries, planned for the Gold Line, put on great community events, and responded to residents’ concerns.


If reelected, I will continue to offer fresh ideas and innovative solutions.  I will insist that projects fit our community, and that government is accountable, fair, and friendly.  I will redouble my efforts to make our downtown vibrant, warm, and inviting, with more restaurants and shops, and a westward expansion along Bonita Avenue.  I will fight to protect the outstanding history, stability, and diversity that San Dimas is known for.


It’s all about Quality of Life – A town where Families grow up, Businesses thrive, and Visitors are amazed – A place you want to call home.


This is San Dimas.  Your town.  Together, let’s make it the best it can be!
