"Societal Change and How to Handle Gun Violence"
Arik’s daughter, Alaina, was murdered in a mass shooting at the Borderline in Thousand Oaks, California, on November 7, 2018. Arik and his wife, Hannah, have now started Alaina’s Voice Foundation to help raise awareness of mental health issues in our society.
Arik was born and raised in Napa. After high school, he attended Pepperdine University and received Bachelor’s Degrees in Political Science and Telecommunications. Arik owns the local businesses Ranch Market and Il Posto Trattoria and is the Vice President of Housley’s Century Oak Winery.
Arik helped start the first soon to be professional soccer team Napa Valley 1839, and he has helped run the Napa United youth soccer league for 10 years with nearly 2,000 kids.
That the right of the individual to achieve the best that is within him, as long as he respects the rights of others, is the source of our nation’s strength.
That government exists to protect the freedom of opportunity in which each individual’s creative ability can flourish.
That government activity should be limited to those things that people cannot do at all, or cannot do so well for themselves.
That the most effective government is government closest to the people.
That those who cannot provide for themselves should be assisted by both government and society, but that every effort should be made to help them become self-supporting, productive citizens with pride in their independence.
