Honest | Trustworthy | Proven Leadership
Just over three years ago I returned to Salem to represent our community in the State Capitol. I’ve been working hard each day since then to advocate for the priorities of our district – but it has not always been easy. Our rural values are often overlooked by Portland politicians. I’ve stood up against major tax increases on hardworking Oregonians and small businesses and sought to protect our values and way of life. I will never stop fighting for our community.
While much of my career has been focused on my radio business, service to my community has always been one of the great passions of my life. This passion took me to the U.S Navy after I graduated from Grants Pass High School, and ultimately brought me back home where I started a family with my wife Malinda and ran for office.
My time as your State Representative has been guided by the same principles that have guided my entire life: Service, self-sacrifice, honor and integrity. Those are the traits that continue to motivate me as your State Representative in Salem.
Thank you for your continued support.
