I have respect for the past: As a native Oregonian with timber and agriculture as my heritage; I honor our rural Crook County lifestyles.

I have knowledge of the present: Having listened to our county officials and participated in the Oregon Rural Congress, I want to quit "polishing our problems". Our citizens need jobs. Poverty doesn't pay taxes. We need diverse employment opportunities. Attracting employers requires leadership. I will work to secure sustainable jobs for Crook County. I have listened to our county's employees and I will listen to you.

I have hope for the future: Our glory days are ahead of us not behind us. With management and inclusion of all stakeholders, we can create the community we want for ourselves and the generations to come. I will lead by example and open the doors of our county government. I will be the voice for government that is responsive to the will of the people. I will be the voice that makes sure our land use ordinances are fairly implemented. I will be the voice that demands our rights and share be justly apportioned from Salem and Washington, D.C.
