As a native of Massachusetts, I was born and raised with the drive to serve the public and become a police officer. After graduating from Westfield State College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, Michael worked for a local district attorney’s office for several years before finally applying to the storied LAPD. In 2008, his dream came true. Moving across country and leaving everything and everyone I knew back east, I graduated the Los Angeles Police Department’s academy and hit the streets running. An “Officer of the Year,” and five (5) time recipient of the “Mother’s Against Drunk Driving Award,” I was realizing my lifelong dream. A commended peer officer, whose advice was quite often sought after in matters of Collision Investigation, Drunk Driving, Arrests, Mental Health Intervention Techniques, and Report Writing , I am always striving to be better and assist newer officers… even in personal matters as just a voice of experience, and careful thought I am the proud father of two children, with whom I co-parent with my best friend, Tawnya. Being a dad is my life’s greatest accomplishment. After 14 years of service to the citizens of Los Angeles, I was faced with the most difficult decision of my life. The covid pandemic and subsequent civil unrest that followed, had me working the “front lines” for nearly two-years. Undeterred, I, and the thousands, upon thousands, of First Responders, and front line work ers, continued our jobs throughout the months of uncertainty. Once hailed as a hero, officers, firefighters, doctors, and nurses, were being demonized for choosing, and standing up for, our own medical sovereignty. At great sacrifice to my own career, family, and financial future, I stood fast against the ordinance of the City of Los Angeles and orders of the department, that I love so deeply. As co-founder of the anti-mandate coalition, “RollCall4freedom,” I took on the daunting task of speaking out against the draconian and totalitarian measures the local and federal governments were taking to silence dissenters. I was relieved of duty on November 3rd, 2021, had my police powers suspended, and am now facing termination for standing up for our Constitutional Rights. Our constitutional rights, our medical sovereignty, our choice, is what has driven me to jump into politics. Leaving a country, a state, where standing up now; fighting back, ensures that our children will still have a country where they, themselves, can still stand. The new democrat, and their liberal, progressive ideologies, have decimated the once, great Republic of California. For too long, they have held onto power by any means necessary, and it is time to take this state back. Are you any better off now, then you were, two years ago? Humbly, I ask for your help, your vote, in doing so.
Home is where your heart is. For too long, the state and federal government has fostered an atmosphere that incentivizes, you giving up control over what you have. Whether it is your children, money, vaccinations, school choice, critical race theory, or financial assistance; WE DO NOT CONSENT, and we DO NOT CO-PARENT with the government. Decisions involving what is best for you, should stay with you. As your elected representative in the State Assembly, I will stand up to, and challenge the members, of BOTH houses, who strive to strip you of your power over your family, and children’s future. The government was put into place to PROTECT your rights, not to limit them. I pledge to fight for the sanctity and liberties of families across this state.
I wholeheartedly oppose the overreaching and unconstitutional medical policies of this administration, both at a state and federal level. I believe in science, and in saying that, I believe that science changes. If we cannot argue that, then it is not science but, propaganda. I object to Vaccine Passports, Mandates, Digital ID, and anything else that restricts your free movement in society, and forces unwanted, experimental medical procedures, upon you. Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness, were ideals, enshrined into the United States Constitution. Our own California Constitution echoes that also. As a police officer, I swore an oath to uphold the constitution against enemies, both foreign and domestic. I will never let that oath be tarnished. The ideals, and core values that I’ve lived by for most of my life, and the values of the LAPD, guide me not only in uniform but, in my personal life, too. My goal is to restore, and secure, our God given rights as Americans.
We are put on this earth to explore our souls, not to sell them. For too long, politicians in California have fed the pockets of special interest groups, wasted our tax dollars on failed projects, and restricted water for much needed industries, like farming. The administration and democrat lawmakers have cast aside YOUR interests for those of globalists and pharmaceutical giants, never answering for their abuse of power. Today, we are looking at a tidal wave of bills being shoveled through the assembly, hoping to be passed into law before the mid-term elections, that have a direct impact on all of our futures. Who will hold those in “power” accountable? I challenge you all to send me. I am not afraid of the task. We have an oppressive tax system here in this state. Businesses are leaving in droves, and with that, thousands of jobs. At 7.25%, California has the highest, minimum statewide sales tax in the United States, to go along with a crushing personal income tax . However, somehow Sacramento still finds a way to get blood from a stone. Even democrat voters are fleeing the state, in record numbers. Unfortunately, they are taking their ridiculous ideals to other states to ruin. Those of us who have chosen to stay, see the beauty of this state and recognize that it is worth saving. As Assemblyman, I would immediately sponsor a measure to suspend the gas tax to help the already struggling California family. Crime is another skyrocketing topic. Our police departments, statewide, are facing defunding, dwindling quality applicants, and media scrutiny. They are handcuffed by feckless leadership and unions who do not stand alongside them. They are undercut from all sides, yet they continue to adjust and provide services to you. Our police are no longer proactive but, reactive due to a small minority of activist groups which have permitted all levels of government. The rank and file officers of this state should not be utilized as the army for the elite, but instead, as the protectors of the people. The good, hardworking, tax paying businesses and citizens. They should not be preyed upon by the criminals nor the compromised, progressive, District Attorneys. I pledge to fund our police departments, I pledge to stand with them to help them do the jobs that they swore to do. I pledge to work arm in arm, educating them of the importance of their oaths.
Extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. It’s common men and women, like myself, like the framers of the constitution intended, who are forced to take up the mantle, to don the Armor of God, and fight off the evil in this world for the betterment of all. As stated before, I have a personal stake in this game. I want to be a man that my children can look up to, and when they reflect back to these unprecedented times and say, “he did everything he could for us.
On June 7th, I respectfully ask for your WRITE-IN vote at the ballot. Help me to move through the primary election and onto the November ballot.
