- NUMBER-ONE CAMPAIGN FOCUS:
To ensure the Northeast is properly represented at City Council, my number-one campaign focus is to provide a strong voice for the Northeast constituents.
- WHAT SETS YOU APART FROM YOUR OPPONENTS?
What sets me apart from my opponents is my proven leadership ability in both the military sector as well as civilian sector. I have commanded military units as well as trained future military leaders. I have led and directed academic, personnel and budgetary issues as a University Director of Webster University. Not only do I research, study and implement leadership skills, I am the author of the book “Cracking the Nut on Leadership ‘A Way’”. In addition, I am an entrepreneur starting, running, managing and leading small businesses in the El Paso Community.
- RELEVANT EXPERIENCE THAT QUALIFIES YOU FOR THE POSITION YOU SEEK:
I have 21 years of military experience leading, planning and organizing complex operations of multi-million dollar organizations. I have vast experience working with diverse groups of people as well as managing multi-million dollar budgets.
- IF YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO REVOKE ONE ORDINANCE IN EL PASO IMMEDIATELY UPON TAKING OFFICE, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE?
If given the opportunity, I would request to amend Ordinance No. 16015 and Amendment 016736 where the City Manager is given the authority to sign contracts on behalf of the City of El Paso. I believe City Council should be involved in any decision to sign and/or negotiate contracts or agreements between the City of El Paso and any third-party entity.
