“A man’s word is his bond” and “a handshake seals the deal!” were not just sayings in my home as a child. They were guidelines on how we should live our lives.

Growing up, my parents instilled in me two things: (1) a deep and abiding faith in God and (2) to respect another person’s opinion, even if you do not agree with it. These are the values I have tried to apply in Pierre during the eight years serving as your representative.

Thank you for your support in the past. I’m asking for your vote on June 2nd in order to continue taking our western values to the legislature.
