President's Message

During my property management career in Phoenix, AZ I managed a property called Madison Square.  Senator John McCain was a tenant at Madison Square for many years. I had the honor of being the property manager for this site while he was a Tenant from 2006 – 2009.  More important, I was the property manager when he was the Republican Party Presidential Nominee in 2008 against Barack Obama. He added an additional suite at Madison Square for his Southwest Regional Headquarters Campaign Office. 

They held a rally in the suite hosted by John McCain and his wife Cindy McCain. Prior to that rally I had to supply building drawings to the Secret Service and tour the entire project top to bottom of both buildings with Secret Service. They also had temporary metal detector at the entrance of the building for this event. A totally new experience for me. 

On election night, my team including my Chief Engineer was invited to their private election night event at The Arizona Biltmore Waldorf Astoria Resort. Even though it was a somber event due to the defeat, it was still a pretty cool experience.

Over the last year I have been following his fight with brain cancer. Being an Arizona resident for 10 years, Senator McCain became part of my ongoing interest in the political world. Cindy McCain is also a big staple of Arizona, as she is the Chair of Hensley Distribution which is based in Phoenix and is one of the largest Anheuser-Busch beer distributors in the United States. 

Due to my relationship with Senator McCain and all his staff over the years, his passing was pretty emotional for me.  I watched all the coverage of his lying in State, funerals and eulogies.  No matter your political views, I am pretty sure we can all agree he was passionate about the United States and proved that over and over throughout his life.  RIP Senator John McCain.

President, BOMA Silicon Valley
