I am truly humbled and honored to represent and serve all of you the past 8 years as a PORAC Region II E-Committee Member. I am asking for your continued support as I seek the office of PORAC President.
I have 31 years experience as a sworn peace officer in California, with the last 21 years at the Fresno Police Department. I served 12 consecutive years as the Fresno POA President and did not seek re-election in November of 2016. I served as a Trustee on the PORAC I&B Trust, and I currently serve as a trustee on the City of Fresno Health and Welfare Trust, and Fresno POA Legal Defense Plan.
As a PORAC E-Committee Member and past President of the FPOA, I am/was very active regarding pension reform, LE legislation, P.O.S.T. issues, LDF issues, PAC, and lobbying state and federal leaders. I presented on concession bargaining and pension reform at the CA League of Cities. I attended and presented at the Harvard Law School Labor and Worklife Program.
I established positive relationships with state/federal elected, and other law enforcement labor organization leaders. Most importantly, I have positive working relationships with the PORAC E-Committee and BOD. I believe these relationships are vital to being a successful PORAC President. I will work collectively with PORAC leaders to address law enforcement legislation, pension reform, and most importantly the negative perception toward law enforcement established by the media and social media.
I would be honored to have your vote for PORAC President!
