Hi, I'm Randy
WHERE I COME FROM
My wife Lisa and I were born and raised in a small town, very much like Pleasanton, with charm and a strong local business community. We were high school sweethearts and have been married since 1982. I graduated from Turlock High School and shortly after graduating, I joined the United States Coast Guard. I was stationed at McClellan Air Force Base as an aircrewman on an HC-130 aircraft. I have three children: Russell who is married and lives in Wichita, Kansas; Christopher and I partner in our real estate business; and Danielle, who works in San Francisco as a Senior Marketing Manager in Media Strategy + Planning.

As your City Council member I look forward to supporting our community for many years to come continuing along the same path of living, working, giving back and thriving in the great community of Pleasanton.
A THRIVING CAREER
For much of our adult lives, Lisa and I have been business owners and self-employed, in construction and design. I started my real estate career in 2004 with PMZ Real Estate and have been with them ever since. PMZ Real Estate was established in 1957 and has more than 600 agents. I also have been a loyal supporter of giving back to the community where we live. I served five years on the Central Catholic School Board where our daughter attended high school, including a one-year term as the board chair. When my wife and I moved to the Pleasanton area in 2012, I immediately joined the Chamber and went through Leadership Pleasanton that same year. Shortly after, I got involved with the Chamber Ambassador committee and ended up chairing that group as well. I joined The Rotary Club of Pleasanton and was Club President in 2016-2017. Lisa sat on the Livermore Valley Wine Growers board for several years, and we were both a part of the American Cancer Society Relay for Life events. Lisa and I were asked to be on the Valley Care Charitable Foundation board to prepare for the acquisition by Stanford Health Care. I chaired Stanford-ValleyCare’s Foundation golf tournament and helped Lisa and others put on the Polynesian paradise event for the Foundation as well. Lisa and I were recognized and honored with the “Distinguished Individual Service Award” presented by the Chamber and the City in 2016. I am a family man with a sense of business and philanthropy. We have two beautiful granddaughters, Grace and Rilynn, that spent several weeks with us this past summer. I built a lemonade stand for them, and is a true teaching moment, they sold lemonade at several community events and chose to give the money to two local charities: Valley Humane Society and Pleasanton Military Families.
