Keep San Mateo County Safe.


"I have called San Mateo County home for nearly 30 years. It is where my wife and I chose to raise our kids and now where my grandkids are growing up. There is nothing more important to me than keeping our County safe." 


AN EFFECTIVE, decisive leader with a proven track record 

I'm not afraid to take on San Mateo County's toughest challenges. Whether it's Covid-19, policies that reinforce transparency and accountability, officer wellness, or changing the public's perception of law enforcement, I find solutions that make a real impact. 


I have built a reputation of taking action and achieving results.  Since taking office in 2016, I have focused on programs and policies that increase public safety, promote transparency, and address the specific needs of our community. 


My Priorities:

Keeping our Great County Safe.

Implement programs that not only provide our inmate population with the tools, resources, and
opportunities they need to successfully reenter the community, but instill hope and dignity as well.

Build excellent relationships with the communities we serve.

Leverage modern technology to enhance public safety and better serve our communities.

Be leaders in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

I am proud of the great work we have done together, but  I know there is more work to do. It has been amazing to see the growth and progress our County has made in recent years and I am personally committed to continuing that progress and ensuring that our County is a safe and welcoming place for everyone. 

Over the past three decades,  I have proudly served the residents of San Mateo County.  Public Safety is my number one priority and I hope to have the honor of being re-elected so I can continue to work everyday to keep our County safe.

I humbly ask for your vote this June.
