Mayor and City Commissioners City of Alamogordo

1376 E. 9"' Street

Alamogordo, NM 88310

"Dear Mayor and City Commissioners:

As a resident of Alamogordo in District 1, I submit this letter to express my interest in serving my hometown through the District 1 City Commissioner seat.

I am a proud resident of Alamogordo, having called this city home for the better part of my life. I grew up in Alamogordo, attending Buena Vista and Heights Elementary Schools, during which time I learned the importance of community involvement as a volunteer on the community build of "Kids Kingdom"-where I recall spending many hours soaping screws, and to this day I still cannot tell you why that was important, but it kept us busy, and it taught me being involved in one's community is how to make things happen. I was a 2001 graduate from Alamogordo High School, and a 4-year member of the Alamogordo Tiger Basketball team. Upon graduating high school, I attended and graduated college at California Lutheran University and resided in the greater Los Angeles, CA area for 10 years. It was in 2012 that I returned to Alamogordo, to enjoy all that this hidden gem of a city has to offer.

By trade I am an experienced real estate investor and licensed real estate broker. I've held a real estate broker's license in California since 2006 and in New Mexico since 2010. I also possess a GB98 General Building License in New Mexico. My current focus is the management, operations, and acquisitions for our portfolio of Self-Storage facilities in New Mexico, along with brokering commercial real estate transactions in Otero County.

Over the past 5 years I've had the pleasure of being involved in our local community, fostering a deep­ rooted desire to see it continue to thrive and flourish for residents and local businesses. I currently serve on the board of directors for the Otero County Association of Realtors and held the position of president in 2019. I am also an active board member with the Alamogordo Center of Commerce, serving on the executive board as the Vice Chair. In addition to these positions, I've also been active with MainGate United and presently serve on their executive committee. I was an active board member at Mountain View Church, having served in that capacity in 2018 and 2019. While taking an active approach to involvement in my community, my beautiful wife and I also thoroughly enjoy volunteering for the Sertoma Club of Alamogordo and her many school related ventures, where we experience and see first-hand what a blessing this community has been to ourselves and so many others.

It is through my experience and involvement with local community organizations, my business background, and my deep love for and desire to see our community continue the strong path it's currently on, that I believe the knowledge and experience I possess would be the ideal fit for the constituents of District 1 and the City of Alamogordo. The current City Commission has done a superb job of guiding our community in a positive direction, I applaud them for their dedication, and I would consider it an honor to be a part of that leadership.

Alamogordo is our home and I look forward to the opportunity to serve in the capacity of City Commissioner for District 1."
