As a lifelong resident of Southern California I am aware of the changes that have happened in our state and feel that we can make improvements. listed are a few issues I would like to see changed or improved for the benefit of the taxpayers.
1) Lower Health Insurance Premiums for those families and individuals who do not qualify for premium assistance which became available to families in need of premium assistance. The ACA increased Insurance Health Insurance Premiums for the middle class which made Health Insurance Premiums unaffordbale for the middle class blue collar workers who are not eligible for governments assistance.
2) Lower Business Taxes and offer business Incentive programs to keep small businesses in California.
3) Better equip and reform our Mental Health Facilities to serve those in need in our district.
4) Serve the homeless in our district with adequate living facilities, vocational training and work programs.
5) Help solve our Traffic Congestion problems in Orange county and beyond.
6) Help make the immigration process accessible for those seeking to become legal citizens, taxpayers
7) Explore solutions to lower Gas Prices .
8) Promote School and Public Safety Programs though Security Clearances and Gun Control measures

As a lifetime resident of Southern California I am excited to be a candidate for nomination/election to the office of US Representative, 48th District in California.
Personal Mission statements – To serve the 48th District as a member of the Republican Party and represent our district through roll up the sleeves hard work, honesty and integrity.
What members of Congress do.
Members of Congress represent the people of their district in the United States Congress by holding hearings, as well as developing and voting on legislation. All bills must pass Congress before they can go to the President to be signed into law.
In order to provide the best representation for California's 48th District it wil be my intention and duty to spend many hours each week meeting with people in the 48th District to discuss current activities in Congress and listen to their concerns and ideas regarding a variety of issues.
My job is to serve and would be available to help those in the 48th District who may be experiencing difficulties with a local or federal agency and any other issues that would fall into my domain as your elected representative to improve our District .
What are the qualifications to a member of House of Representatives
25 years of age
A citizen of the United States for at least 7 years
At the time of election, be a resident of the state
How many members of Congress are there?
There are a total of 535 Members of Congress. 100 serve in the U.S. Senate and 435 serve in the U.S. House of Representatives.
How long do members of Congress’ terms last?
Members of the House of Representatives serve two-year terms and are considered for reelection every even year.
How many members of Congress come from each state?
in the House of Representatives, a state’s representation is based on its population. For example, smaller states like Vermont and Delaware have one representative while large states like California have 53 representatives.
How many people do congressmen and senators represent?
Members of the U.S. House of Representatives each represent a portion of their state known as a Congressional District, which averages 700,000 people. Senators however, represent the entire state.
How do the House and Senate chambers differ?
In the House of Representatives, the majority party holds significant power to draft chamber rules and schedule bills to reach the floor for debate and voting. In most cases, House rules will limit debate so that important legislation can be passed during one legislative business day.
In the Senate however, the majority has the power to schedule when various bills come to the floor for voting but a single Senator can slow legislation from coming to the floor for a vote. Since debate in the Senate is not concluded until 60 senators vote for a cloture motion to approve a bill for consideration, the majority must also coordinate with the minority part to set the rules for debate on legislation. Under this system, legislation can be debated for one or two weeks on the Senate floor alone.
Why does Congress use the committee system?
Congress deals with a broad variety of different policy issues and it is more efficient to have work done at the committee level than on the House or Senate floor. In addition, this system allows members to gain expertise in specific issue areas they are interested in. Throughout history, committees have been created to address particular issues before Congress. The House has 23 committees while the Senate has a total of 20 committees.
How does a bill become a law?
Passing legislation into law is a complicated and lengthy process between the House and Senate before the bill is presented before the President to be signed into law.

As a baby boomer born in the 50's and growing up in Southern California, I have witnessed many changes to the area. As the famous movie title "some good, some bad and some ugly. One of my favorite experiences after I graduated from College at Cal State Los Angeles was to join the LA Junior Chamber of Commerce and later the Pasadena Jaycees a leadership training organization. I was encouraged to get involved in the community from my Father (who was a successful business owner). The Jaycees taught me to always push myself out of my comfort zone and take action to better yourself, others and your communities. In addition to being on the Board of Directors for the Pasadena Jaycees in the late 1970s I also served as President of South Pasadena San Marino Jaycees in the early 80s' . Most my working career which was documented in my book ( 57 Jobs and counting " a career path less traveled and guide to finding your passion" was spent traveling around Southern California and beyond as a Sales Executive for printing and packaging companies for most of my career. After the devastating 9/11 which changed America forever I felt a need to make a change in my career. From 2001 - 2004, I become a Substitute Teacher and later a District Intern Public School teacher for Long Beach Unified School District workring with students with developmental disabilites and emotional disturbances, That experience changed my life and gave me a new perspective on many things. I also became a Licensed Real Estate Agent in prior to 9/11 and became a Real Estate Broker Licensed in insurance in P & C and Life and Health in addition to owning my own small business JBGmg marketing & More!
The biggest changes and those that concern me and many others in So Cal today are the high cost of living, affordable housing, traffic congestion, higher taxes, homelessness, border security, Illegal immigrants taking advantage of our system and avoiding paying taxes etc, mental health facilities closures, education and public safety.
Having visited Washington DC this past summer and making visits to Gettysburg, Arlington National Cemetary, the Pentagon, the Nations Capital and the White House I felt a calling to run for the office for the US Representative, 48th District in Orange County to make a difference where I am homeowner in Sunset Beach with my wife Coby. I learned many years ago in the Jaycees that Government should be of laws rather than of men and that the Government was designed in our Constitution to serve the people. I would be honored to serve the people of the 48th District in the US House of Representatives if elected and would strive to take an an active role in working with the people , community leaders, businesses, schools and elected officials for improvements in District 48 that will best serve the 48th District and beyond...
Thank you for supporting me in my campaign in the upcoming Primary Election. God Bless America!

As a representative of Orange county I would describe myself as a conservative Republican candidate running House of Representative on District 48
I like to receive my news about politics, government and campaigns through interaction with people, Radio, TV , Campaign Party Websites. I always look at both sides of issues regarding proposed laws and political viewpoints.
I respect the opinions of all in their beliefs about politics or government whether they agree with mine or not. As a lifetime Republican I support our President and elected officials regardless of party. I am in favor of pro-jobs, pro-border security and pro-America policies which our current President stands for.
I believe cutting taxes should always be a priority and that government should be of laws for the people and not of men. I feel our affordbale care act needs reform to lower health insurance premiums for the middle class and above who say their premiums go up significantly as high as 300% when Obama Care came into law.
I do not believe in forced unionism and I feel every worker should have free choice in deciding whether to be part of a union or not.
I do believe we have too many layers of Government waste and think that many federal programs should be shifted to the Cities, States or even eliminated to save taxpayers hard earned dollars.
I support President Trump's conservative budget outline which includes eliminating wasteful programs, redundant Federal programs.
I support a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
I am in favor of renegotiating international trade deals to make sure we are leveraging our power in favor of American Workers and U.S. Based companies.
I am all in favor of “Made in the USA” and believe every state should empower and offer tax incentives to small businesses.
I do believe their is too much Government involvement in our free enterprise system.
As a former President of the South Pasadena San Marino Jaycees and as the the US Jaycees state in their creed which I full endorse I believe
That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather than of men;
That earth's great treasure lies in human personality;
And that service to humanity is the best work of life.
A few more areas I am in favor of:
Increased energy exploration for oil, natural gas and coal to be less dependent on imports to lower our fuel prices.
Affordable Housing and AB 1482 Statewide Rent Control in California and just cause evictions
Continue to secure our borders and deport illegal aliens who have been convicted of crimes in the USA.
Streamline the immigration process to encourage foreigners who wish to become legal citizens.
Continue to support or Veterans with programs that serve their needs for healthcare, housing and jobs.
Keep our Military Strong and equipped to Protect America.
Lets work together always!
