I have recently assumed my position on the North Central Fire Protection Board of Directors. I am joining 4 other Directors that all represent you in the Bullard area. I have lived in the Fire District, near the Bullard fire station since 1994. I am a licensed insurance agent with my main focus on Property & Casualty insurance – Auto, Home, and Commercial insurance. I have been in the business for 35 years after attending Fresno City College and Fresno State University.
On a personal note, I am 57 years of age, born and raised in Fresno as the youngest of 9 children and have always been involved in our local and church community. I’m an active member of the Knights of Columbus, an Adult Leader in our Boy Scout program and proud father of an Eagle Scout. My wife Catherine and I have 4 children between us, a son living in Santa Rosa who is an emergency room RN, a daughter in San Diego who is a Vet Tech, a daughter in her last year of grad school at CSU Fullerton with degrees in Psychology and Human Services, and a son finishing his undergrad at Cal Berkeley’s College of Chemistry program.
I am excited about the District staffing the Bullard and West fire station in my neighborhood, as it was first opened shortly after the Fire District was formed 74 years ago, in 1947.
