USAF, Vietnam era
Former Law enforcement

Education: Attended USC

Briefly describe the core duties of the position you are running for:
As a State Senator you represent the people of your district in all things related to state law.

A brief statement about your platform 
I entered the political arena after my retirement from business because I kept seeing career politicians say one thing on the campaign trail and do another once elected.
I have always held to the belief that your representatives should hold to the values and beliefs of their constituents and as your representative in our district for the last 10 years I have always held to those beliefs. I pledge to continue that representation.
I am a true conservative that has received numerous awards and certificates from conservative agencies. Including being rated the top conservative in N. Nevada by NPRI. I am endorsed by law enforcement agencies such as LVMPPA, The Washoe County Sheriffs Assoc., PORAN and even Sherriff Dan Coverley of Douglas County.
I have also been endorsed by true conservative champions such as:
House Freedom Caucus Chairman, Congressman Andy Biggs.
US Senator and conservative champion Ted Cruz.

What makes you the most qualified candidate for this position:
Your Senator Should be responsive to his constituents, as I have tried to be as you Assemblymen. I even publish my personal cell phone number so that you can reach me directly.
It is not enough to just vote correctly; anyone can do that. As an advocate for your constituents, you must also be willing to fight for their rights and beliefs. I have proven many times over how hard I fight for you and will bring this same fighting spirit to the Senate. What almost never gets publicized is how many bad bills got changed or even killed behind the scenes. This is something I have become quite adept at.
