Randy Ryder, Vice President


I am a police detective with a police department in Southern California. I have been a police officer for more than 25 years. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. I graduated high school, went to college for a year and then enlisted in the Marine Corps.

Joe Avila, Secretary

I grew up in a Christian home and went to the church following some Jewish customs. My mother was the strong believer at the time. My father was a very good man, but during my childhood did have a relationship with the lord.

I grew up part of my childhood living in the City of Compton, California. I am the youngest of eight and needless to say, there was always something going on in my household.
