I was born in 1957. The most significant event in my life was when I was born-again on December 5, 2010. Lorie and I were married in 1977 and have been married for 30 years. We have 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren. Before moving to Hayden Lake 3 1/2 years ago, Lorie and I lived in Palmer, Alaska. Currently, I’m a Field Service Engineer on Diagnostic Ultrasound and Echocardiography Systems. Though I haven’t held elected office yet, I have been involved intensely as a constituent/citizen for eight years. I have talked to legislators and governors, testified in legislative committee hearings, spoken at Legislative townhalls often, lobbied legislators, and talked to candidates. I have done this in Idaho and Alaska and Oklahoma. I am concerned about the attacks on man as created in God’s image, God’s design for marriage and family, and the proper role of government including state sovereignty and defying tyrants. If the people in my district give me the opportunity, I fully intend to stand with the legislators who stand for life liberty and property, work as though my life depended on it to abolish human abortion in Idaho, and join with other who fight for liberty.
