“My pledge to the citizens of Elmore County is to provide honest, ethical, proficient and fiscally responsible representation in every regard and to protect property rights from unnecessary and over-reaching government regulations. While I very much appreciate the offers of campaign contributions, I have decided to accept no campaign contributions and to self-fund my own campaign. I only ask for one thing, and that is the opportunity to once again serve the good people of Elmore County.
I firmly believe that people who hold public office are indeed servants of the people and that every decision should be made with aspect at the forefront. My dad was a Baptist preacher, and he and my mom instilled in me and my siblings the virtue of always having a servant’s heart. I firmly believe that as children of God, while on this earth, that one of our “callings” is to serve our fellow man by any means that would be beneficial to them. During my lifetime I have tried to live out that principle, whether serving my country in the military, serving the citizens as a law enforcement officer, serving in the ministry of the church or serving the needs of seriously ill children and their families. I will be humbled and most appreciative of your vote and support, but most importantly your prayers. May God continue to bless our country, our state and the wonderful place that we call home, Elmore County!”
