I have a strong desire to represent District 2 on the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors. I consider myself a public servant—modeling the servant-leadership philosophy, focusing on the needs of the community. I’m a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, who believes in small government and managed growth. I want to improve the efficiency and transparency of county government. If elected, I will continue promoting the rural, small-town atmosphere that most Yavapai County residents enjoy. Thirty years of public service, a strong work ethic, and proven leadership skills make me an ideal candidate for the position of District 2 Supervisor. I will work for you and in the best interest of our community.
