Always remembering what a special place Palos Verdes is, he located his family first in Rancho Palos Verdes, then 38 years ago moved back to PVE and has been here ever since. Steve realizes that what sets PVE apart as such an exceptional and unique city, is in good part due to the careful citywide planning set in place at its founding almost 100 years age. It is this attention and deliberate city planning that Steve hopes to help maintain as a PVHA Director.
