About Steve

A bit about my background.

I was elected as your Councilman in November 2016. The Orange County Register called me the Anaheim Kid. I was born and raised here, my wife Susan and I have lived in the same home, next to Anaheim Coves, since 1975. In August we will be married 48 years!

I’m retired from the Hardware Industry, but I’m also a credentialed continuing education instructor and I’ve taught Electrical Wiring and Codes for the North Orange County Continuing Education for 45 years. Some of my students have gone on to have successful careers in our own Anaheim Public Utility.

I have also been a local historian for most of my adult life. I’ve written 4 books about Anaheim.

I was Chairman of the Board of our resident owned Anaheim Public Utilities during the California energy crisis of 2000.

The General Plan is the blueprint of our City or, the outline for future development. I served as part of the City’s General Plan Advisory Committee from 2000 to 2004 where we worked to update the General Plan, creating strategies to enhance the livability of our neighborhoods, revitalize blighted areas and preventing gridlock.

Twenty years later, I see things like the renaissance of our downtown and historic neighborhood, the under-grounding of our electric utilities and synchronizing our traffic signals as proof that we were successful in keeping Anaheim ahead of the challenges that confront modern living. We must keep Anaheim a great place to live, work, play and raise our families.

I also served on the Planning Commission for seven years, where we helped implement many of the parts of the updated General Plan.

I then went on to Chair the City’s Budget Commission where we worked to make certain the City maintained a Balanced Budget, with NO TAX INCREASES!

I’ve also spent the last five years, serving as your representative on the Metropolitan Water District (MWD). Along with Anaheim, the MWD provides clean, safe, reliable water to 19-million Southern Californians.

Family, faith, and a commitment to a better life for all of our residents…that has been my mission from the start.

The weather is getting a bit cooler and it's finally nice to sit outside again!

With ongoing restrictions for restaurants amid the coronavirus crisis, being outdoors is the best option to keep everyone safe and slow the spread.

So we're here to help!

This week we launched the Restaurant Relief Grant Program to help Anaheim restaurants "Take it Outdoors."

You can get up to $2,000 to help expand your outdoor dining space, or get reimbursed for spending you've already done.

Apply now: Anaheim.net/5747/Outdoor-Dining-Grants

It's all part of Anaheim's Community and Economic Recovery Plan, helping the community get through these tough times together.

“There is no individual more dedicated to Anaheim and our neighborhoods than the Anaheim Kid. Since he was first elected in 2016, we have seen Steve’s dedication to improving Anaheim firsthand through his actions on the council and in the community.
