Blake, after earning his BA in Political Science from UC Berkeley, has dedicated his career to finding good public policy that improves the lives of others. Currently he works at a law firm that specializes in providing rehabilitated people with a second chance at a fulfilling career and life. He analyzes criminal justice policy to determine how it can be improved to better provide an equitable access to justice. It is these skills and this mindset that Blake will bring to the position of city councilman: finding good public policy solutions that actually improve the lives of people.
Blake is a homegrown product of Brea. He was raised through the Brea public school system and graduated from Brea-Olinda High School in 2009. During this time, he also achieved his Eagle Scout rank with Brea Troop 801. It is through this hometown development that Blake will bring an approach to decision making that is in line with Brea values and the community’s vision.
Like many of his peers, Blake still lives at home with his parents, but rather than leave the community he grew up in, he wants to stay and fight for housing policy that works. He wants to preserve the great Brea tradition of being able to grow up here and then raise your own family here. He wants to improve our budget practices so we see a future that is sustainable into the future and a government that is more responsive to its community. Blake believes that only together as a community can we solve the challenges that Brea faces and build a stronger tomorrow, today.
