  1. 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.

 

  1. 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. 

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.
