About Sam and his family:

Samuel and his children Aiden, and Yasmina have a vested interest in seeing the City of Duarte become one of the best cities to raise a family. This can be accomplished by being proactive with economic development to increase city revenue, supporting existing businesses, and developing both a biotech corridor and a 4-star hotel by the Metro Gold Line Station. We also need to attract jobs for the 21st century, increase public safety, beautify our city, plant more trees, increase architectural uniformity and cohesion, improve our public schools and provide classes that are relevant to future emerging fields.

Sam believes the constituents’ vision is Sam’s mission. He is much honored to have the voters' trust in him and he will be accountable to move Duarte forward.
