Why I'm Running for Mayor


As a businessman, elected El Camino College trustee, and a former Torrance Councilman, I'm running for Mayor to tackle Torrance’s toughest problems. Here's why I believe I can move us forward.

Proven Leadership. In 14 years in elected office, I have a track record of improving public safety, helping students save $1 million in textbook costs, warning seniors about fraud and financial abuse, protecting the environment, supporting business and embracing our diversity and international character. In 24 years of professional management, I tripled revenues in 18 months as a CEO, led 2,000 team members and drove $1.5 billion in revenues. View my track record >

Financial Stewardship. As a Councilman, I helped the City get through the Great Recession with $50 million in reserves. As an El Camino College trustee, I helped the College achieve its best financial condition in a decade. In the private sector, I’ve improved performance by hundreds of millions of dollars. I have a plan to solve the City's financial crisis, which is the fourth worst financial condition of any city in California, according to the State Auditor. View my plan >

Commitment to Community ServiceMy life is about community service. I started serving the City in 1999 as a Commissioner, and went on to serve on two additional commissions. Through two decades, I’ve served on a dozen nonprofit organizations in a board leadership capacity, including the Torrance Historical Society, Torrance Symphony, Sharefest, Go for Broke National Education Center, and a Cub Scout Den Leader.  Professionally, I led the national Red Cross blood donation program, helping save more than two million lives each year. More than 80 community leaders across the political spectrum have endorsed my candidacy. View the endorsements list >

Election day is June 7, 2022. I respectfully ask for your vote — and that you make your mark for Numark!
