I will continue to use my Skills and Experience to improve the Quality of Life for our senior citizens, youth, families, and veterans. It is written the ideal county commissioner should have experience in Finance, Budgeting, Communications, and Personnel. I am the only candidate that has the education and Extensive Financial and Business Experience needed to help ensure that your taxpayer money is being used in the best possible way, and taxes are NOT increased unnecessarily. I have a proven record of saving taxpayer’s 1000’s of dollars in taxes annually. I support our Police and Fire Fighters making sure they have the proper tools to ensure Exceptional Public Safety. I am heavily supported by both law enforcement and firefighters. I have fostered strong relationships with the local business community and support Smart Economic Development. I will continue to listen to the needs and concerns of our citizens. My pledge to you is to be Present, Accountable, and Transparent to all citizens of Benton County. I have been married 32 years to my wife Gina, have two children, both graduates of Richland High and WSU! We have called Benton County home for 30 years. Endorsed by the Benton County Republican Party.
