Contact information

On this race:

Elected Experience: I am running for office to represent the Will of the People-not as a “career politician.”

Other Professional Experience: I have served my community as a Christian Pastor, Police Officer, Teacher, Coach, and come from a family of Small Business Owners.

Education: B.A., Puget Sound Christian College; Law Enforcement Academy

Community Service: I was born in Iran and moved to America at age 7 to escape an oppressive government. I became a citizen of this great country to seek freedom and opportunity for a better life. My wife Michelle and I have two boys, and are privileged to be active members of our community.

Statement: My priorities are safer communities, job creation, and prioritizing education. I will fight to cut taxes, slash government waste, protect our Police Officers, and put more teachers in the classroom, not the district headquarters. Endorsements: Rep. Mike Hope, Councilman John Koster, and many more.  Strong Leadership- "For Such A Time As This."

My Democratic opponent, a 16 year career politician, has repeatedly defied the Will of the People by voting for more taxes and reckless spending. I seek to restore integrity and accountability to this position in the 44th.  Isn't it time for new leadership in Olympia?
