Office Sought: Member of the City Council - District 4
Occupation: Newport Beach Councilman/Businessman
It has been an honor to serve as the Newport Beach City Council District 4 representative and your 2017 Mayor.
I was elected four years ago to rein in excessive spending.
I was able to help restore the private property rights of Newport Harbor homeowners, and led the audit of the excessive city hall project, recovering additional money for taxpayers that exceeded the cost of the audit.
We have been paying down the city’s unfunded pension liabilities faster than any other city in the county, while maintaining healthy reserves and avoiding tax increases.
I introduced and support charter amendment T giving voters a voice in future debt for large city projects.
As a former Orange County prosecutor, I will work aggressively to fight crime in our community.
I am currently an executive and corporate counsel for a technology company headquartered in Newport Beach.
If re-elected, I plan to continue paying down the city’s unfunded pension liabilities, control spending, and work with community groups to mitigate the impacts of John Wayne Airport.
I greatly appreciate the opportunity to serve our community. I ask for your continued support. Thank you.
