"Thanks to everyone who supported me and voted for me on June 7th, 2016."
My beautiful wife and I have lived in the community of Redwood Shores for 20+ years. Like so many of you, we enjoy the good people in our neighborhood, the convenient setting and easy access within the Bay Area, and all the natural beauty our Shores offer. We both work in High-Tech and have made the daily commute to either Silicon Valley or to San Francisco for many years.
Why get involved now?
The continued success of our community depends on the overall success of our Nation, State, and County. While the Bay Area has enjoyed growth in the tech sector for some years, we are not immune to the outcomes of political decisions made in Washington, Sacramento, or City Hall. Below are some examples of how politics and policies can adversely effect our future:
The standard of living, opportunities and freedoms for our next generation greatly depend on the direction we set today. The officials we elect, the ideas they stand for, and the laws and policies they put forward on our behalf will directly impact the well-being of our and the next generation.
Why I chose the Central Committee?
I sought to be elected to the San Mateo Republican County Central Committee in District 4. As a member of the Central Committee, I'll be able to help our party to recruit and elect qualified candidates to local, State and Federal offices. Candidates that support our values, keep our community safe, improve our education opportunities, keep taxes low, and work to grow our economy across all income brackets -- while balancing and addressing the sustainability of our environment, infrastructure, and budgets.
As an immigrant from Switzerland, I have first hand experience of what bipartisanship politics can achieve. During my time in Switzerland, I've served as Officer in the Swiss Military, and have not missed any opportunity to lead (from soccer team captain to class speaker) to make voices heard. I continue this philosophy in the U.S. by serving on various Advisory Boards to technology companies and professional organizations, political committees, and as the president of the Golden Gate Swiss Club for the Bay Area Swiss community.
Thank you again for your support and vote during the 2016 Primary Election. I welcome any questions and dialogue.
