Biography

I’m extremely honored to serve as a member of the Covina City Council. As the current Mayor, I will continue to work with my City Council Colleagues and our professional city staff to ensure that our Covina residents and businesses continue to be provided with stellar city services. During the coming months, the Covina City Council and I will continue to work very hard implementing a detailed strategic plan to address the current and future needs of Covina. Our comprehensive Strategic Plan is comprised of the following critical goals:

Enhance financial well-being
Enhance safety and quality of life in Covina
Foster innovation and efficiency
Enhance customer service
These goals, along with detailed objectives, will continue to serve as a foundation for Covina’s continued success. With the partnership of Covina residents, the Covina Chamber of Commerce, our school districts and other critical stakeholders, Covina will continue to thrive.

Asides maintaining focus on our Strategic Plan Goals and Objectives, one of my other top priorities will be ensuring that adequate resources are available to continue providing top notch public safety services to Covina residents and businesses. After serving for over 32 years, as a sworn law enforcement professional, I believe the opportunities I’ve had providing law enforcement services to the people of California has prepared me to ensure that our stellar Police Department and Fire Services have the tools and resources they need to continue providing public safety services that are second to none.

In regards to my background, the last three years of my active law enforcement career consisted of serving as a Governor Schwarzenegger appointee; first as the Director of the California Youth Authority and then as the Chief of the law enforcement branch of California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). Prior to my appointment by the Governor, I served as the Assistant Chief of the California Department of Justice where I worked for more than 25 years. Before my employment with the California Department of Justice, I was a police officer and SWAT Team member with the Chino Police Department.

In addition to my city council duties, I currently serve as a Past President and Executive Board Member of the California Narcotic Officers’ Association, as a member of the National WeTip Executive Board; Member, Citrus Valley Health Partners Board of Directors, the Ettie Lee Youth and Family Services Executive Board, the Stillpoint Resources Advisory Board, the Bob Margett Foundation Board, the Saint Louise de Marillac Elementary School Board and as a member of the Saint Louise de Marillac Church Pastoral Council.

I’m a graduate of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona with a Degree in Urban Planning and a graduate of the California Department of Justice Special Agents Academy and the FBI National Academy.

In closing, my calling in life has always been serving others and I want to convey to the Citizens of Covina that I’m here to serve you to the best of my abilities. I dedicate this year of service to Covina as Mayor in memory of my loving wife Patricia. I want thank the Covina residents for providing me that opportunity. If I can ever be of service to you, please feel free to contact me at 626-384-5410 or email me via the council mailbox anytime.
