Biographical
General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

My priorities are: positioning the state for continued economic growth, encouraging water storage for our communities, and continuing what we started with crucial public safety laws.

We also need more health care options, so that important medical decisions are made between you and your doctor. One of these options is allowing you to take your insurance with you from one job to another. More choices create more competition and lower prices for you.

Your input is important as we work to restore economic vitality in our state.
