Iowa House of Representatives District 1
Why I am Running
The Citizens of District 1 need an EXPERIENCED LEADER with a common sense approach to represent them in Des Moines. I grew up on a family farm in Northwest Iowa. After college, I transitioned into the banking industry, working with ag and commercial lending. My LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE includes Branch Manager of First Bank and Trust in Spirit Lake, president of the Spirit Lake Chamber of Commerce, president of Spirit Lake Noon Kiwanis, chair of the University of Okoboji Winter Games, member of the Spirit Lake Planning and Zoning Commission.

While serving in Des Moines as a State Representative I have always focused on a conservative, common sense approach to government. I work in a bi-partisan manner when I can, but I will always stand firm on the principles of the constitution and a limited government. I have worked hard to reduce government regulations on Iowa business both large and small.

Our State Government’s spending must stay within our ongoing revenue and I have consistently voted for budget reforms and lowering the tax burden on Iowans. We need to pass responsible and sustainable budgets to allow the economy to grow and its citizens to prosper.

Northwest Iowa is a great place to live, work, and raise a family and I want to make sure that it will remain that way for my children.
