Elected Experience: First elected in 2004, I serve on three standing committees including Agriculture and Natural Resources and Rules and serve as Deputy Minority Leader.
Other Professional Experience: Thirty-year timber and ranching small business owner.
Education: Studied at Green River and Olympic College.
Community Service: Active in the Okanogan Farm Bureau and Coalition for Property Rights and longtime member of the NRA.
Statement: My top priorities include restoring a healthy economic climate and jobs, reducing tax and regulatory burdens while protecting our schools and essential services. While families and small business prioritize spending, government continues to grow and spend beyond it's means, I'm working to reverse that trend. I've worked hard to build strong working relationships on both sides of the aisle and educate urban legislators on Eastern Washington issues which I believe is essential to getting things done for the people of the 7th District. I'd like to continue providing common sense in Olympia, and I ask for your vote.
