Who I am:
I attended Southern Illinois University fulltime at its satellite location on F.E. Warren AFB, studying Industrial Technology. I earned my
Associates Degree in Criminal Justice. I have been a Resource Protection Program Manager. I've worked, managed and delegated key responsibilities throughout my careers. I have developed the understanding of "follow-up" which means stay the course and check your work until completion. I attended an FBI course on Crisis Intervention. I have instructed courses at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy. All of my life experiences give me a unique perspective. I have worked with people on all levels. I believe I have the courage to listen to ideas I don't agree with and find common ground within those ideas. Twenty-one years in the United States Air Force and eighteen years as a Wyoming State Trooper have taught me focus. I've attended leadership schools, was an Air Force Recruiter, the Chief of Police on Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field in Arizona and a Wyoming State Trooper. Each position helped me understand the difference between leadership and management.
I want to show your trust in me is warranted by being an accountable Representative in the State Legislature. I can work behind the scenes but prefer to be up front when and where important issues are evolved. I will be fully prepared on day one.
I have found that "fight" is a word used loosely when a person is at a loss for words. Additionally, a fight begins once the lines of communications have been broken. In a fight during government processes the loser is more times than not the voter. I prefer strong directed debate for our issues where reasonable minds usually prevail.
I believe in fiscal responsibility. The government has no stand in our personal lives unless a law has been broken, or there is a warrant. The government works for the people and therefore the people must hold the government accountable with their voices and their votes. Elected officials are hired hands and they should not have to be reminded of that. Family is most important. The decisions and votes I make will be in their best interest.
There is nothing to complicated if you are willing and have the desire to learn. I am that person and will serve you faithfully. My service as your Representative will be with Honor.
