Age (as of Election Day)
I was born in 1982, the same year Agoura Hills was founded. We are both 40!
I am registered as No Party Preference, and I have always voted across party lines. The election for Agoura Hills City Council is non-partisan, and the position itself is to serve the community, not political parties. I believe that party politics marginalizes and divides us, and like most of the voters I have spoken to, I am tired of being judged by my political party affiliation.
I have four young kids and love being a father, and one of my favorite times of the week together is our Shabbat dinners. I also love being involved in other ways, as an AYSO soccer coach for both my older kids and a parent volunteer at their LVUSD school.
Does anyone in your family work in politics or government?
No, my mother was a lawyer and my father was a truck driver.
