With 15 years of County and local government elected experience, I am an innovative, independent and dynamic leader. I bring a strong work ethic, a small business owner's perspective and a fundamental belief we should all play by the same set of rules regardless of access to money, power or political influence. I don't accept any corporate PAC or dark money.
I'm an Independent because I believe the politics of problem solving is increasingly being lost to the politics of rigid partisan ideology. The tax payers who pay our salaries expect us to focus on solving problems and creating opportunities, not playing rigid partisan political games.
As a practical small business owner, I understand the best ideas are not constrained to a single party or ideology. People are justifiably frustrated with dysfunctional partisan politics. I build alliances and support smart, strategic ideas - regardless of whether they come from a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or Independent. I support rigorous fiscal management and policies that strengthen families, small businesses and communities of northern Arizona.
