Real work. Real progress.

Thank you for visiting my webpage and learning more about my campaign for Waterville Mayor.

My motto is to leave everyone better than I found them, its a principle that extends from my personal life to my two downtown businesses. I am running for Mayor of Waterville to create a better environment than the one that I grew up in. As the son of Portuguese immigrants, I grew up poor, in an unstable home. I know how it feels like to be treated like an outsider. My father was an alcoholic, and he and my mother separated before I was born. As a result my family moved around a lot.

I also know that it’s possible to improve our situations if we work hard. In 2010, I moved to Waterville to raise my family, I have since started two successful businesses, You Broke It and Grub. With hard work, a little bit of luck, and the support of the Waterville community, my businesses are succeeding. I wants to be your mayor because I wants to give back to the my community. I want to give back to the community that that helps me pay the bills and raise my family in a stable, loving home.

It takes real work to make real progress. I is ready to get down to the real work for Waterville.

I would love to earn your vote on November 3rd! Please reach out, or stop by Grub to introduce yourself, and share your hopes or concerns for Waterville’s future.

Real Work. Real Progress

Improving the Quality of Life

I believe that one way to focus on improving the quality of life in Waterville now and in the future is by investing in infrastructure upgrades that could save the city money in the long run. Read more about my infrastructure priorities as Waterville’s Next Mayor.

Committed to the Community

My adult life has been about service. Whether it is helping to provide meals during the COVID Pandemic or working with residents to deliver solutions to complex problems that impact the city. I pride myself in being a solution provider that works well with people from all walks of life. Read more about my work in the community.
