I have been active in politics and have held elective offices. I loved managing campaigns both local and national. The elective offices I have held are:

Now that I am retired, my greatest hobby is my 8 1/2 year old grandson. He is a great Pitcher and first baseman in the Little League Minors. I promised him I will write a book for him, and this is my start.

I live in California, but Melrose is my home.

I became a member of the Melrose Silver Stringers, July 8, 1999.
