Thank you for your interest and consideration in my candidacy for State Representative of the Southern Klamath County area. I have been a part of the community, both city and county, for most of my life. This Basin was a wonderful place to grow as a child, and after college, as a place to live and conduct business. My business is farming and I am proud of being part of a multigenerational occupation. My parents instilled in me a much appreciated common sense about maneuvering through life. That common sense, along with a good education, challenging business experiences, and leadership in natural resource issues since 1998, has made me the person I am, ready to tackle tough issues.
Klamath County deserves:
- A proactive leader in the State Capital.
- A person who is comfortable working Salem and Washington, DC.
- A person who educates himself on the issues.
- A person who actively seeks out potential issues before they become crisis.
- A person who appreciates living in Klamath County.
- A person committed to the 56th District in these challenging times.
