His construction industry knowledge stems from having been Principal of Southwest Civil Contracting and, before that, Director of Operations for Merritt Construction, both located in San Marcos. As an “A” licensed general contractor, he oversaw all aspects of workplace safety on projects, including highway and street improvements, site infrastructure, pipeline installation, sewer, water, storm drain and landfill construction.
