As the current Chair of the Moraga Planning Commission, I have tackled head-on the challenges placed on us by “one-size-fits-all” housing legislation handed down by the state. Through my leadership and my votes, I have supported and advocated for policies that help us fulfill our community’s desire to protect our beautiful hillsides and ridgelines from overdevelopment, while also creating opportunities for safe and vibrant downtown commercial districts in Moraga’s core. While serving as a vice president of the Moraga Community Foundation, I additionally worked to improve Moraga’s recreational facilities by raising over $100,000 for projects to revitalize the Commons Park. Professionally, I am a transportation policy administrator – currently a government relations manager at BART. I have spent the last two decades confronting complex governmental challenges at the federal, state, and local levels. I am also co-owner and Chief Strategy Officer of an E-commerce business.
When my family decided to move to Moraga nearly six years ago, we did so because of the excellence of its public schools, the beauty of its open spaces, and the charm of its semirural character. Now, as the father of three under five, I am unwavering in my commitment to ensure that my children grow up in a community that retains these characteristics.
I am passionate about public service and am determined to continue working towards making our wonderful community even better. I would be honored to represent you on the Town Council. I respectfully ask for your vote.
