Eagle Scout, Boy Scouts of America (1975–1980)


I was Born & raised in the 58th Assembly District. My great grandparents on my mom’s side came to Bellflower  in the 1930’s. On my dad’s side my Great Grandfather “Papa” lived & died in Bell Gardens until he was 99 years old.


I attended local schools in Bellflower & Downey. I have 3 college degrees from Cerritos College, CSULB, and a Masters in Educational Counseling from CSUDH. Also I have Teaching & Counseling Credentials. 

My dad was my little league coach, mom was my den mother, which helped me achieve my Eagle Scout Award in Cerritos.


Profession: Educator & Tennis Coach for over 30 years in LA & Orange County Schools, for the last 3 years since my father the former Mayor of Bellflower & Los Cerritos Superior Court Commissioner Ed Drayer died, I have be running our family businesses in Bellflower, Downey, & our Mexican Seafood Restaurant Building in Paramount.

Finally my community accomplishments: I helped reduced election costs for Downey School Board & Bellflower City Council by empowering neighborhoods & I was elected to the Cerritos College Board of trustees building new college buildings on time & under budget. However due to my father’s untimely death I retired from the board to complete my father’s probate, which I finished last June. Since I retired from the board I have worked actively with the Accreditation Commission & spoke up for the community & students in regards to the illegal leasing of student parking & the Strawberry patch in violation of the zoning laws of the city of Cerritos & Brown Act in not properly informing the public occurred.  The State Attorney General agreed with me that laws were broken by the college, but due to the limited budget of the DA’s Office could not take action at this time.
