Keen on the Issues. Delivering Results.


Sullivan County has nearly 2000 jobs available NOW, I know how to reduce barriers and make our community as attractive as possible for businesses to locate, expand and hire.


As a small business owner, councilman, and family man I have had to live within budgets. I will work vigorously to make government more efficient and effective so that it works better for you, the tax payer to lessen your tax burden.


Bristol students are some of the best in the state. Our teachers and students deserve most of the credit. We, from a policy standpoint, must continue to hold high standards and expectations while giving our school systems and parents the tools they need.


It's simple. I believe, that medical decisions about your health and well being should be made by doctors and other medical providers, not a government agency.

Life-2nd Amendment-Religious Liberty

I will wholeheartedly protect and defend your rights.
