I’ve named my campaign “Think Different” for that is how I live my life. I try to view things from different angles, through broad experiences, by rising above the fray and looking down. Nonpartisanship gives me better clarity of my world—of Santa Cruz—of its challenges and solutions. Our number one problem here isn’t housing, crime, health, drugs, poverty, cost-of-living, jobs, education, traffic, water, energy, or others. It’s a lack of pluralism. Too many voices are being left out of the dialogue. It’s one-sided and static. There is no free market of ideas, so problems fester. Individualism is losing out to Groupthink. Our participation ends at the ballot box where we relinquish our choices to politicians and special interests.
I want to re-empower individuals by transforming local government to give each resident: (1) an equal voice in our district's vision, (2) greater freedom of choice and (3) greater access to the levers of power to shape our district. To do so, I will leverage my strengths in software development, business development, marketing, management, startups, fundraising, education, free speech rights and political history.

The Nonpartisan Movement is a small, Santa Cruz-based watchdog group and think tank with a mission to save Liberalism, an ideology founded on Individualism that has been under siege and distorted for decades. We believe that the Santa Cruz Liberal community has lost its compass in regards to the ultimate purpose of Liberalism: to protect individual rights and freedom of choice from government incursions. Each day, we hand over more power of choice to an over-reaching government to make our choices for us in the name of the Public Good (Collectivism). Individualism (Liberalism) and Collectivism (Government) are the antitheses of one another and in constant tug-of-war over the power of choice. Political parties (Government) are NOT the protectors of Liberalism, by definition (and despite the illusion), but her antagonists. Our movement will propose a solution to these growing encroachments into our individual freedoms of choice in pursuit of restoring greater "power to the people"—a paradigm shift in local government that re-balances the power equation that has long been tilting in government’s favor since the 1960’s. Cast your district in your image, not theirs. Push back against city hall through Nonpartisanship and Direct Democracy. Learn more about how we will rapidly spread Direct Democracy "nodes" across the United States and worldwide by leveraging advanced technology solutions to decentralize decision-making power and to redistribute it back into the hands of the individual to advance individual rights and freedom of choice to all people .
