After Putin won elections in 2000, my wife and I decided to immigrate from Russia. Our families suffered a lot from KGB agents like him. At first, we headed to Canada. In 2003, we won Green Card Lottery and moved to New Jersey with our youngest son. After his entrance to Pace University in NY, we relocated to Miami, Sunny Isles, Hollywood and finally bought a house in Surfside in 2012.  

We adore Surfside. It’s paradise. We intend to spend the rest of our lives here.

In 2016, I ran for the Mayor of Surfside. It was tough to compete with the present Mayor who is running for the 5th term now. 

I was the Chair in my community in Russia and have experience to implement complex problems. For example, we laid plastic water pipes into the ground 7ft deep because of frost in 1998. There haven’t been any incidents since.

For the last two years, I tried to contribute to the community, a Pesonnel Appeal Board Member, fighting against unfair excessive code compliance fines exceeding $400,000 with unlimited $15k fines a day and liens on property. I managed to convince commissioners to terminate the Red Light Control Contract because it was mostly in favor of a vendor and spoiled the town’s reputation.

I can be more useful to the town because I am retired, 56 years old, mostly free and have enough time to devote myself to Surfside. Foreign rental income. We have successful 2 sons, 2 daughters and 3 grandsons. 

I have the best education in politics and business. I graduated from the most prestigious Moscow State University of International Relations, like Yale, Harvard or Princeton Universities with two foreign languages Sinhalese and English, a professional Diplomat. I passed training and internship in Finland as a Risk Manager under European Common Wealth Program. I am fluent in web mastering and utilize state-of-the-art technologies. 

I served 3 years in the Navy on a big warship as a helmsman. I will never leave the town in danger. 

Surfside has many potentials to be an excellent town with the warm ocean, mild climate, the best beach, beautiful parks. We must be proud of heritage from founders. But everything is aging, unfortunately… 70year old posts, harm waves emitting wires, unnecessary phone landlines, cables, abandoning houses, out of pace business area. 

My platform is based on three main priorities 1). Transparency 2). Security 3). Office reform 

in favor of residents of Surfside, businesses, not developers and lobbyists, to create project managers for gated community, wire undergrounding, the beach, solar grid system. As well as to lower costs, taxes, new better services and jobs. To pay special attention to elder people needs, perspectives for kids in order to save them from drugs, computer games, inbreathe confidence, hope and willingness to succeed.  

The goals are to build a friendly community, to be transparent in finances, expenses and bills, to upgrade town property, to invest into the beach, solar system, electric underground grid, high school, social events with minimal burden for residents, and more cooperation with neighbors.
