Tim avoids partisan extremes, and just does his job.

Education: B.A., Notre Dame.
Community Service: Board Member: Clark County Skills Center Foundation, Chamber of Commerce Public Affairs Committee.
Statement: A father of four and former budget analyst, my moral compass is service to others. I've fought against debt and spending for years, voted against all taxes, and against overturning I-960.
The only reason I do this job is to get real results for real people. 9,600 people in new jobs, training, and student internships. New training benefits for soldiers returning from overseas. 2 new laws cutting red tape for small businesses. I cut my office budget in half, and refused pay during special session. Far more unites us than divides us. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, I ask for your vote.
