My business career and military duties span advising Marine commanders, defending & prosecuting war crimes, complex civil & criminal trials and a combat tour in Ramadi, Baghdad & Fallujah, retiring after 32 years active and reserve in 2006. I have lived and worked in this District since stationed at Camp Pendleton in 1981, with my family raising our three children.
I chose to volunteer to serve my country, the greatest on earth. We need new, positive leadership committed to integrity, accountability and transparency in a Congress that is willing to take big-money’s influence out of our Government. I will fight to bring back American jobs that provide living wages & equal pay for equal work. I have the experience to ask the right questions to get us the Strongest National Defense, the best Veterans Administration, and to stop endless wars. I will demand comprehensive immigration reform that makes American employers part of the solution.
