Statement: Service, Integrity and Leadership are critical in my family and professional life. These attributes have guided me in the military, as a small business owner, community servant, and family man. As our state increases our tax burden and piles debt on our children, I am concerned for our future. With my experience, I will work to create transparency in government, alleviate the burdens on small business and provide support for our families, our veterans, and our public servants.
This community deserves a representative who listens and gets things done. I will be that representative. Doug Richards: Service, Integrity, Leadership
