Host and Political Analyst, News From The EDGEmont / The Hot Seat (video and Radio show) (2014current)

I previous ran in 2014 in the recall election of Victoria Baca.  Since that time I have continued to stay active in the community by advocating for $280,00 in street repairs, Pvt Adrian Mitchell Park improvements (crosswalks, city cameras, plaque), I recently put on the EDGEmont debate and started News From The Edgemont and The Hot Seat video and radio show to hold elected officials accountable in the actions that they do while in office.  My education and background as a former Operations Officer in the USAf would make me equivilent to a City Manager as airports operate like small cities.  I have lived here since 1977 and I'm not going anywhere.  My deeds are more powerful than others words.
