General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
I entered the election as a civic duty. Civic obligation led me to serve almost four years in Latin America with the Peace Corps and led my father and both grandfathers to full careers in the U.S. military. The principles of democracy are based on people making informed choices. Unfortunately, our district has recently failed to provide an elective choice for the positions of State Representative and State Senator.
I am not a politician. I am a scientist with a Master's of Science degree specializing in wildlife management.

The biggest issue to be addressed is the failure of the two parties to work collaboratively and provide effective government. Government should work proactively to develop long-term solutions and not act reactively to score political points. The two parties are collectively responsible for failing to prepare for the inevitable economic downturn now occurring.

Neutral mediators help resolve serious conflicts. Good mediators facilitate discussion and push people to actively engage in identifying common objectives. As an independent and open-minded problem solver, I will work as a mediator to pull the parties together on issues that require effective partnership. Where collaborative partnership fails, I will serve as referee to call foul on both parties when they use spin and misinformation to obfuscate reality. My education and profession is founded on the ability to conduct detailed research, analyze data objectively, and question underlying assumptions.

I have a long-term vision shared by many in the district. The vision is for my two-year old son Leopold to bring his grandchildren across the three-county area and still find a landscape that integrates working farms and ranches with the outdoor recreationist's playground. The state will engage in sound practices for managing our limited water and natural resources. Families will feel secure and have superior quality schools for their children.

Peace Corps Volunteer, Honduras - 1995 to 1999 The Peace Corps provided a perfect opportunity for service to my country and to the world at large. My knowledge and education was in scarce supply outside of the U.S. and Europe. Believing I could make a difference by working in a third world nation rather than at home, I finished the long application process and headed off with high ideals, aspirations, and a backpack full of books.
I served in Honduras for three and a half years where most serve for only two. During that time I, implemented and administered a mammal inventory within a national park, developed and facilitated a hunter education course, trained my counterparts in wildlife management and participatory community analysis, organized and directed a community in the construction of an aqueduct system with water coming from within the confines of the national park. My final three months, I supervised and supported 15 Peace Corps volunteers in the natural resources sector.
