About Marvin


Coronado is a special place.

Communities like ours, with unique charm and character, don’t just happen on their own, they are shaped by dedicated leaders who devote their passion, energy and expertise to keeping them special.

I am one of those leaders. I spent the first 30 years of my career serving and defending our nation. It would now be a great honor to represent the residents of Coronado as a Councilman and put my experience and passion for local leadership to work for you.

There are many great people running yet I believe I am uniquely qualified and prepared to serve Coronado and keep it special.
