I am a fourth generation Arizonan and a product of our public education system. I am the father of two daughters and the proud husband of a great school teacher. I am a hard-working, middle-class American. I support my family by working on the railroad, working cattle, as a substitute teacher, and running Holbrook's hardware store for the past 10 years.
I grew up on a family owned cow ranch in Show Low. It was my family's life and livelihood. We were heavily impacted by government regulations, which showed me early on how government can negatively impact rural Arizona. Because of the regulations, the ranch could no longer support my family, I had to go into construction right out of high school.
These experiences have taught me family values, the importance of hard work, and how regulations at all levels can directly impact everyday people. This is why I ran for office.
I am currently the Vice Mayor of Holbrook and have been on Holbrook city council for 13 years. In my time as city councilor I have seen what bad legislation can do to a city, and how to mend that legislation. I have continued to watch the Legislature let our education and transportation go to the wayside. The lack of funding that continues to come out of our legislature to pay for maintaining and improving our roads.
I promise to look out for rural Arizona in the legislature. I will continue vote my conscience as I have always done.
