I am a third generation Eastern Oregonian. I have built fence, irrigated fields, stacked hay, fed cattle, and worked, as the lawyer, for dozens of ranches, farms and small business owners across Eastern Oregon. As a life-long Republican, I know the value of hard work, small communities, and family.
As your State Representative, I will act to protect property rights, individual second amendment rights, access to grazing and timber lands, small businesses, and Eastern Oregon communities.
My candidacy is endorsed by:
Oregon Farm Bureau
Oregon Business Association
Oregon Right to Life PAC
Associated Oregon Industries
Oregon Nurses Association
I know how Eastern Oregon works. Together we can make it work betters.
