I am committed to peace and justice.

At a time when the public's trust in law enforcement has been shaken, I pledge to put our community’s needs first. I will protect the vulnerable, reduce crime, and improve quality of life for all San Mateo County residents.  

I'm committed to accountability, integrity, honesty, progressive policing, unconscious bias training, and a proactive approach to problem solving.  

I was born and raised in the Bay Area and I've worked in law enforcement for the past 40 years. I'm fortunate to have a wonderful family with two loving children and four beautiful grandchildren.  

With your vote you can help bring strong leadership to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Department.  

Please call (650) 730-3187 with any questions.   

Thank you,  


Based on my extensive experience serving the public in law enforcement, being an elected city leader, and currently serving you as a Deputy Sheriff for San Mateo County, I am seeking your vote for Sheriff in June of 2018.
I have committed 40 years to protecting and serving the public and, like you, can see that change is needed.  Law enforcement must be transparent and work with the community, to ensure that public safety is not a commodity available only to certain groups of people.
As your Sheriff, I give you my pledge to implement the values of integrity, accountability, and honesty.  I believe it is imperative to examine where we've  been, so that we can enact bold new strategies for progressive policing, which will lead us to a more stable future.
If elected, I will provide leadership skills with confidence, flexibility, and a proactive approach to problem-solving. I am on YOUR side.  I will lead by  example, and foster an atmosphere of trust and an open door to best enable all  who serve alongside me.  

I am proud to be part of what makes our community strong and consider it a privilege to serve you
