I care about local issues, and I want to understand how they affect you. I understand people from all walks, because I've walked so many of them myself.
We all have struggles, and we all have dreams.
I know what it's like to lose a job, and I know what it's like to win a checkered flag.
I've labored in a truck factory and done research in a laboratory. Both are hard work, in different ways.
I've worked on a race car pit crew, been a house carpenter, a hunter, a hiker, coached skiing, rowing and football.
I know how sometimes you work hard, and it seems you still can't succeed.
I know how "alone" it feels when all the cards are stacked against you, and I also know how great it feels when folks work together and things start going your way.
I'm a husband, married thirty-plus years to the same wonderful woman, and the father of a girl and a boy. I've held my children close when they've fallen off their bikes or been bullied at school. I'm proud to see how they've grown up to adulthood and made good lives for themselves.
I may have retired as a teacher, but I'll always be a learner. You can talk to me - I'm sure we have something in common.
I want to learn your story, and I want to learn how I can help you as your Representative.
