I hope to be of value to the citizens of this great state through my financial leadership and the knowledge I have gained in my many years of civic and political service to this county.  I am a Laramie native graduating from the University of Wyoming with a B.S. in Finance and my M.B.A.  I was elected to two terms as trustee of the Ivinson Memorial Hospital and was elected to the Laramie City Council.  I was co-founder with Senator Nicholas in creating the Laramie Beautification Committee and have continued to Chair that organization for many years.  I am actively involved with the University of Wyoming serving on the Board of the American Heritage Center and past Chair of that Board.  My wife and I are life-time members of the UW Alumni Association.
