I have been a part of this community for 44 years, teaching government and leadership at Atascadero High, running a small business, and volunteering with dozens of organizations. I am running for mayor because I believe that we need someone with deep roots in the community to bring people together and meet the challenges ahead.

As a small business owner, I appreciate the importance of local businesses in creating the community we enjoy. As a former board member of Big Brothers/Big Sisters and North County YMCA, and a founder of the Atascadero Optimist Club, I am passionate about supporting families and kids. Whether it’s chairing the Colony Days Committee, serving meals at ECHO Homeless Shelter, or inspecting election precincts, I know how to bring people together to get things done.

Reducing homelessness, ensuring public safety, strengthening our economy, and planning for our future are my top priorities. Many of you already know me as the voice of the Atascadero Greyhounds, now I want to be your voice for Atascadero. Make sure you register to vote, and when you get your ballot, vote Mr. T for Mayor!
