     During my father's career in the
Navy we moved to Washington state in 1975 and my family fell in love with the area.  My father decided to serve out his last three tours of duty in the Washington state area so that his kids could grow up here.  I have been a resident of this state and have called it my home for the last 35 years.

   In 1987 I entered the Marine Corps and served honorably for four years. I was extended beyond my four year enlistment to serve in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf war.  When I returned from the Persian Gulf, I left the Marine Corps and started my career with Snohomish County where I have worked for the last 19 years.

   I served as the President of our Union, Snohomish County Corrections Guild, for three years from 2005-2008.  I am a Field Training Officer and Defensive Tactics instructor for the Sheriffs Office. 

   I have been married to my wife for almost 17 years and we have three wonderful children. 

   Here is my candidate statement from the online voters pamphlet since I don't believe there is a voters pamphlet for the primary election:

I am Past Committee Chair for Boy Scouts of America Whatcom County chapter. For years I helped instruct Tae Kwon Do and self-defense classes for children and adults.

I believe we can provide our essential governmental functions more efficiently than we currently are by eliminating redundancy in government. As your state representative, I will devote my time and energy to reviewing our governmental processes and systems to determine where we can consolidate programs and spend less. I will focus on the development of more efficient government without raising taxes. My goal is to ease the tax burden of private citizens and businesses in order to strengthen our economy.
