Reason for Seeking Public Office:

I am running for office because, to paraphrase the late President Ronald Reagan, I want to represent the real unsung heroes of our state - the men and women who go to work each and every day, pay taxes, stretch their hard-earned dollars to make ends meet, pay for their children's education, coach their children's athletic teams, contribute to their church and their favorite charities, understand there is no such thing as a free lunch, and ask nothing from their goverment other than to not make life more difficult for them.

Spouse's Occupation:

Second Grade Teacher at Clarkson Elementary School
