As a military veteran, husband, and father of five; I have spent my entire professional and adult life caring for and serving others. For years now, our Constitution, with the liberties it protects and limitations it places on government, has been degraded and tossed aside to benefit politicians and the corporations who pay them. The very essence of our nation’s roots has been challenged as the politicians use legislation and media to control the citizens of the United States. Restoring our liberties can only be found in those individuals whose allegiance remains with the people, not the party. So now is the time for me to serve all citizens of our country again and restore the freedoms this land once offered.

My goal in office will be to put the Valley’s issues back in our hands. I want to restore power to the people by addressing frivolous laws that inhibit our district and I give you my word to propose sensible legislation to protect our country!

How Am I Different

This morning, I was asked how do I differ from Devin Nunes. Here was my reply:

"The basis of my campaign is "Less Taxes, Less Spending, and More Freedom."

Congressman Nunes has done several positive things for our valley, but here are just a few of the areas in which I differ:
1. I will not support spending increases, regardless of who is president.
2. I will not sacrifice constitutional rights, such as our right to bear arms.
3. I will engage with the people I represent, and not allow money to dictate who I listen to. I will be out at Big Hat Days in Clovis, I have participated in forums where I was ideologically outnumbered, and will continue to be out in the public.
4. I believe there are more financially responsible ways to handle the immigration issue than a wall, such as ending the drug war, addressing our laws that encourage black markets, and significantly modifying our welfare system."

Clovis Big Hat Days

I am just $287.33 away from having a booth in Clovis' Big Hat Days on April 7th and 8th.

If we receive enough by Monday, we can potentially reach up to 140,000 people within the area.

With your help, we can get a veteran into office to represent freedom for us all!

With the donations received this morning, we broke past the 10% Mark on the way of reaching our goal of $5,000.

THANK YOU to you who have put your faith in this campaign, and in me, to restore our voice in congress.

It is the job of our representatives to speak and vote on our behalf, and to remember the oath to the constitution and the preservation of our individual liberties.

I will be that voice, I will be representative, I take my oath seriously, and I will always respect individual liberty.

We are on the ballot, but that is just the beginning!

On February 28, 2018, I became the FIRST to formalize my candidacy for California's 22nd Congressional District. To date, I am still the ONLY candidate to satisfy ballot requirements as a challenger for this congressional seat.

Taking the oath of candidacy marks my third time taking an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, against all enemies, foreign and domestic." The first two times were for military service; upon my enlistment into the United States Navy in 2003, and again at reenlistment in 2007. 

I am excited to take this oath again and understand the battles I will face to preserve the sanctity of our Constitution and protect our inalienable rights defined in the Bill of Rights.

To succeed in this district, we must band together to show we share the common cause of protecting our rights, the rights of our neighbors, and the rights of future generations.

Show your support today by donating to this campaign or message to learn about volunteer opportunities.

It takes just 5 minutes to donate $3, $10, $25, $50, or $100.

Send this Veteran to Washington, DC to put Principle Over Party, to place People Over Party where it matters most.

Our 2nd Amendment is Under Attack

With every tragedy that happens, representatives try to use it as political leverage to take away our rights. The arguments they use include "no one should have the right to do that much damage" or "the right to life of the fallen is more important than the right to bear arms." The problem with these arguments is they are supported by misinterpreted facts, and conveyed to voters as the whole truth. They say that gun violence and gun related murders in Australia have fallen since they implemented strong restrictions. What they fail to share with voters is the overall violent crime and murder rates in Australia only fell by a marginal amount, which is also the case globally; although there was not a global gun restriction implemented. While gun violence decreased, violence using other weapons spiked. Taking away the firearm did not take away the motivation, it only encouraged criminals to select a different weapon. Furthermore, Canada has a higher number of guns per capita than the United States, but has fewer gun related deaths. The problem is not the gun, it is the person holding the gun.

Until we address the motivation behind these atrocities, we will not see a decline in violent crimes.

If you support the 2nd Amendment as I do, I need your help. Please donate $17.91 in support of the Bill of Rights that was ratified by the U.S. Congress in December, 1791.

We know the goal, now we need your help to meet it!

To be listed on the ballot in California as a candidate for U.S. House of Representatives, we need $1,740, 2000 signatures, or a combination of the two.

Tomorrow, volunteers from Clovis, Tulare, Visalia, and as far away as Oakland will be gathering signatures in an all day event.

Going into tomorrow, we are already at 8% of the goal with a mix of cash and CrowdPac donations and signatures, giving a great starting point.

What can you do to help?

Every $17.40 donation received equals 20 signatures, $43.50 equals 50 signatures, and $87 equals 100 signatures.

Each donation amplifies our efforts in gathering signatures.

Campaign created!
