 I Am

I am a husband, father and grandfather. I am a man of God. I am thankful to be an American. I am a lifelong resident of Canyon County. I have been a business owner since the early seventies. I am an employer, the chairman of a non profit and a pilot. I am a public servant.

My Family

I have been happily married to my best friend

Laura for 43 years and we have two children who are married. We have four grandchildren.

We also have a fun, furry, four legged family member, Irish Wolfhound!

I am an active member of a local congregation and also involved in the greater denominational organization in the Northwest.

I want to acknowledge that my country and the sacrifices made for it have allowed me to pursue my dreams. The rights afforded to us through our constitution make us a great nation.


I have enjoyed living in Canyon County in an agricultural area. For years I have taken time off and worked short term for local farmers. Staying connected to agriculture has been a joy in my life.


I am a business owner and employer, producing products that are sold around the world. I deal with cash flow, payroll and provide a flourishing environment for my employees.


I have the privilege of being the chairman of a non-profit Christian camping organization, working with a broad spectrum of talented individuals to provide a place of rest and rejuvenation for all ages and denominations.


I believe that being a good neighbor means giving back to the community and I find I do this best by being a public servant. I have held the office of Mayor for 23 years and would like the opportunity to serve the residents of Canyon County as County commissioner.
