A candidate for State Representative Pos. 1, Legislative District 19 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election
On this race:
Elected Experience: I am a first-time candidate. I have never run for or held public office before.
Other Professional Experience: I worked in the computer hardware for 12 years, telemarketing 3 ½ years, truck driving and currently food processing.
Education: I attended high school in Fridley, MN and I am a graduate of Northwestern Electronics Institute with a 2-year Associate of Electronics Technology degree.
Community Service: I have been on 2 short-term missions trips through my church, going to Mexico for 2 months in 1985 and France for 3 weeks in 1990.
Statement: I would describe myself as a God-fearing, patriotic, hard-working conservative average Joe, who lives from paycheck-to-paycheck, struggling to pay bills.
I have always had a strong desire to make a significant, positive difference in the world and carefully consider the best way to take action. I saw an opportunity to make a difference and that is why I'm running. I will do my best to lower taxes, reduce out-of-control spending and fight for sensible government.
