“I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!”

I am often asked, why did you move your family to the Texas Hill Country?  


Although I was born and raised in Los Angeles, it turns out I have always had Texas values!  


When it was time for me to retire from the LAPD, my wife of 33 years and I knew that we needed to leave because our Judeo-Christian values and mind set was not very common, nor welcome, in California anymore.  


We wanted to find a place where we could live out our values to the fullest, and raise our children around like-minded people who actually care about others. 


The beautiful Texas Hill Country, Kerr County in particular, turned out to be a place where we felt “at home.”  


I want to be a Sheriff who does his part to maintain these values, I do not want to change them!  Those values are why I’m here!  


As YOUR Sheriff, I can give back to the community some of what I receive on a daily basis, and do my part to ensure it continues for a long time.
