I was born and raised in Santa Ana. It is the city I have called home my entire life. I graduated from Saddleback High School and I got my Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering from Cal State Fullerton in Spring 2020 . I am a husband, father, and a God fearing man.
I have lived in three different neighborhoods in Santa Ana. I grew up around Bristol and Warner. I bought my first home near Memorial Park. About 5 years later, I sold it and moved a beautiful community north of 17th street. I have a beautiful home, 2 functioning cars, a great career in the field of technology, and a beautiful healthy family.
A few years ago I started the Facebook page, Neighbors of Santa Ana. The page was created to spread Santa Ana news and to build a community bond with the sole intention to advance Santa Ana forward. That page has now reached nearly 8k members and is followed by the City of Santa Ana Facebook page, most of the City Council, as well as many local businesses. So why in the world would I decide to go into local politics?
In the process of managing the page, I have come to realize that there are dirty dealings in city hall. We have a mayor who has been in power for too long who is finally being termed out. We have unions in control of our council. We have a city council that doesn't listen to their constituents. It is time for REAL change. We need regular residents taking control of THEIR city, not career politicians, not people who are beholden to special interest groups, and not people who are trying to advance their political party.
I am here to serve all the forgotten voices of Santa Ana. The law abiding residents who are tired of their city looking like the way it is, who are tired of the homeless situation, and who are tired of the high crime rate. We need to bring pride back into this city. I dream big. I want to be one of the top cities in Orange County. Trust me, it can happen...
