"Our lives have changed in these last few months. I want to thank all North Dakotans who have stepped up to help their communities, neighbors and family. We will get through this.

We will have to make some tough decisions in the next legislative session. When the time comes to make difficult decisions concerning education, working families, healthcare, family farms, small businesses and others, rest assured, I will stand up and fight to make sure your voice is heard. I am passionate about moving North Dakota forward and you can count on me. 


I can't do it without your support and any amount you can give - $10, $15, $25, $50, $100 $200 - to help is appreciated. Please click on the donate button to make an ActBlue & You contribution.

Thank you, I am honored to represent you!"

With a great sense of duty and with a grateful heart, I look forward to serving you. As we move forward, your continued support will be greatly appreciated. There is much to do and WE will cross the finish line in victory. 


  • COVID 19. How do we ensure our citizens of North Dakota are safe and how do we keep our economy strong?

  • I will stand up for all North Dakotans, not those of special interests.

  • Being a veteran, I will stand with them.

  • Education funding will be a top priority for me as your representative.

  • Rural development needs more attention.

  • The cost of healthcare and medications need to be affordable for all.

  • We must maintain a strong Human Services Department and keep our ND State Hospital maintained as well.

  • I support working family issues and union labor.
