As a Trustee of the Anaheim Public Library Board, he has been a vocal proponent for increased literacy rates for young children in Anaheim and is proud of the Board’s work in expanding summer reading programs. He has also served as the lead advocate on the Board for legislation that would provide funding for the construction and renovation for Anaheim’s public libraries and ease the ability of local communities to pass library construction bonds.

He understands that when children receive a high quality education our neighborhoods are strengthened, healthier, and more vibrant.
