I began serving as a State Representative in the Colorado State Capitol after winning election in 2010. It has been an honor. I will now serve as your State Senator for District 7.

I grew up in Rifle, Colorado and have been married to my wife for thirty-six years, with two grown daughters. An avid fly fisherman and outdoor enthusiast, I enjoy spending time with my family in beautiful Mesa County.

An advocate of thriving family and community life, I promote the values of faith, liberty, and personal responsibility. I also support the understanding of and reverence for our Founding Fathers and exceptional history as a nation.

I believe citizen-legislators who understand the needs of their community run the best government. Government is responsible to uphold the Constitution, protect individual liberty, and allow Americans to pursue prosperity and peace.

Please take a moment to connect with me and tell me how I can best stay in touch about the issues that matter most to you. I have a profile on most of the popular social sites and blogs. I can also communicate with you via email or direct mail.
