Why Me?

I can win.  I can beat incumbent, Brad Sherman (D).

I am a business man and not a politician. I have lived here for most of my life, and I have seen a lot.  I now want, with your support, to use my many experiences to help improve some of the things that I am now seeing. I want to help YOU.  

I always vote the issues and the person not the political party. I encourage you to do the same. I ask you for your vote.
