I spent most of my life in Southern California where I eventually met my wife, Michele, and we have one daughter Jennifer, and two wonderful grandchildren, ages 2 and 4. I spent 36 years on the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, retiring in 2008. I worked various assignments with my final role as a Sergeant in Detectives supervising Detectives investigating violent crimes.
We decided to move to Peoria two years ago for a variety of reasons. Blackstone Country Club has everything we have dreamed of; an amazing golf course, gym, variety of activities, and very importantly a group of engaging and superb people. The fact that our daughter, son-in-law, and grandkids live five minutes away makes our move perfect. I am running for the Blackstone HOA Board because I want to get involved in the decision-making process and to bring forth the general members thoughts and concerns.
I have a vast amount of experience in this area as I served on the Lake Havasu Refuge Community HOA for four years from 2010 to 2014. My responsibilities on the Board included holding the Secretary position, supervising the private security that ensured our safety in the gated community, and being the chairman of the Design Review Committee (DRC).
On a personal note, I am an avid golfer, enjoy the gym, pickleball, hiking, and traveling. If you elect me to the Blackstone HOA Board, I assure you that I will listen to your concerns, use common sense when making decisions, and promise to do the “right thing.”
