Personal Goal Statement

As a Councilman my goal in serving the great City of Murrieta is to provide strong and effective leadership. I will make decisions that positively impact our residents and businesses. I promise to always make your local government transparent, accessible, and maintain careful budgeting. In achieving my goals as Councilman I will always work to enhance our way of life. Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts and ideas with me.


Jonathan and his wife Melody of thirty years moved to Murrieta so that they could live in a beautiful and safe community. They also had their daughters in mind when they began to settle down and have children of their own. Jonathan wanted his grandchildren to be raised in a safe and friendly community. The remarkable residents of Murrieta embraced their family and today Jonathan is proud that his entire family lives and works in Murrieta.

Jonathan has over thirty years of experience in the construction industry and is a master electrician and property construction specialist by trade. In the past he has worked with the PILOT programs across Southern California in the aftermath of the Northridge earthquake, was a subcontractor for major retail chains, biotechnical companies, with medical providers as a tenant improvement specialist, in the home inspection industry, and currently is a property management consultant who works closely with leasing brokers, storage facilities, contractors, stakeholders, small businesses, and business marketing professionals.
