STATEMENT:

Having lived and worked all over Alaska, I understand its people and their concerns. As a teacher, a soldier, and a working man, I gained practical experience I want to put to work for you in Juneau. I believe that Alaskans deserve a legislature that works with them and represents their needs. Working together we can accomplish this goal. I welcome the chance to work with you!

There are many issues facing Alaskans today. I believe that the people of this state need freedom from too much governmental interference and will work to ensure those freedoms. It is also important we have our basic needs met, including education for our children, responsible development, and fiscally responsible government.

Together, you and I can work to ensure we are:

Creating Open and Fiscally Responsible Government

Making Alaska's Schools Work for Our Children
Promoting Neighborhood-Friendly Development
I will always have an open door to you and will listen to your concerns and needs. I have served our state in disasters and am still serving as a Sergeant in the Traditional National Guard. I look forward to serving you in Juneau. I would appreciate your vote on November 3rd.
