Becoming a candidate.

On June 4th, 2014, I decided to announce my candidacy for San Luis Obispo City Council. 

Asking the constituents of this wonderful community to choose me as their representative is not a decision that I take lightly. 

Serious internal dialogue dominated my thoughts throughout the last four months. Thankfully, my wife and closest colleagues, helped carefully evaluate every line of positive and negative reasoning behind the prospect of serving as a member of the council. At the end of the day, we found that the positive drastically outweigh the negative and that we should move forward. 

So here we are, standing strong for a valuable new perspective, for building consensus around a shared vision of San Luis Obispo's successful future.  

I ask you all to join me, VoteRivoire, learn, and speak out to the decision makers working to make our community incredible. 


It puts a smile on my face to get this campaign started, even if there are a lot of steps to climb.
