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.
These experiences have taught me family values, the importance of hard work, and the devastating impact the underfunding of public schools has had on our communities. 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 is unacceptable and we need someone who will fight for rural Arizona in Phoenix.
I promise to look out for rural Arizona in the legislature.
Please email me with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org and I look forward to earning your support.
