In 2010 Paul sought the nomination for California’s 63rd Assembly District.

Paul had the privilege of interning for Congressman Jerry Lewis and was later selected for the Nation’s prestigious Presidential Management Fellowship Program working for the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. He was promoted to White House Senior Advisor for Law Enforcement, Justice and Drug Control Programs. During his nearly 6-years in the White House, he completed two rotational assignments, one with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles targeting methamphetamine production and one later with the U.S. State Department Office of Inspector General, assessing counter-terrorism and counter-narcotics programs.
Paul has founded several organizations dedicated to his passions to promote American values, youth guidance and the deterrence of substance abuse including; the Freestyle Foundation, Inc., the Inland Valley Drug Free Community Coalition, Drug Free RC and the Coalition for a Drug Free California a state-side collaborative organization of law enforcement, government and volunteers dedicated to preventing the sale and abuse of illegal drugs.
