My desire to serve on the Clovis City Council was motivated by our City’s promising future – and our rich past. My family’s roots in Clovis go back four generations, when my great-grandparents moved here to farm peaches and raise chickens. They worked hard, respected the land, and expected much from their children. So when talk turns to growth and the future of Clovis, I want to make certain we don’t lose sight of the traditions that have helped make Clovis such a great place. I firmly believe that change is not progress if you lose your core.
That’s one of the reasons I’m excited about Loma Vista, a new neighborhood village we have planned and are now building in Clovis. With our great weather, wide-open spaces and bright opportunities, growth here is inevitable. The Loma Vista Village concept allows for growth, while preserving farmland. In addition, with pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly pathways, shared open spaces, and activity-filled core areas, the design will encourage community interaction, which, in turn, will foster safe neighborhoods. Such a plan guarantees our growth will be smart and well thought out. Furthermore, as a Deputy District Attorney for Fresno County, the Clovis I envision for the future puts a high priority on public safety, despite lean budgets.
As parents, my wife Nancy and I care about Clovis’ past – and its future.
