Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth
As a longtime Washingtonian, I have lived or worked in every corner of the 2nd Congressional District since being stationed at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island where I met my wife of twenty years and mother of my three beautiful daughters. After proudly serving and completing my enlistment, I used the GI Bill beginning at Skagit Valley College, to earn a degree as a Civil Engineer and then became licensed as a Professional Engineer who now owns a successful Engineering firm in Skagit County. I truly am living the American dream!
I am blessed to live in the most beautiful place in the world and while I have seen a lot of good changes for our region and country, I have become deeply concerned that many of the problems that effect my family and fellow citizens are not being adequately addressed. I believe that affordable housing, the homeless epidemic, environmental mismanagement, inadequate transportation system, and the excessive taxes we all pay need to be a higher priority with better solutions for the 2nd Congressional District.
In 2020, I decided it was time to do more and officially announced my candidacy as U.S. Representative for Washington States 2nd Congressional District. Unfortunately, even with impressive support from my district, when the votes were finalized, it became clear this was not the right time for me.
After significant reflection on what I learned during my 2020 campaign, I realized that I am not done serving my fellow Washingtonians and have decided to expand on holding government accountable, exposing corruption, and advocating for those who share my values.
I am excited about what is ahead and I am grateful to all those who have been and continue to support me.
I am someone who actually is an infrastructure expert, understands how broken the system is, and I will not tolerate our government incompetency that is leading to its collapse.
As a whistle blower, I have already identified hundreds of millions of dollars of waste, fraud, and abuse in Washington state. Watch what I do when you send me to D.C.!
Religious beliefs must be respected and not dismissed or trampled on. This was a founding reason our Country exists and this right must be protected and I will do just that.
As a Navy Veteran who served overseas, I support a strong military and will not tolerate discrimination against my fellow Veterans and have shown I know what to look for.
Our school system is failing students. From misguided social programs that don't belong in school to dishonest sales tactics used by colleges. The solutions are clear and I will get it done.
As a lifetime steward of the environment, my family and I live a sustainable lifestyle to help protect the Puget Sound. I encourage everyone to use sustainable alternatives whenever possible. Learn More
While I believe there are unique medical situations that abortion may be necessary, I am an absolute supporter of the right of unborn children to live and will protect their lives as I would every life.
As a father of three I believe the childcare crisis goes hand in hand with our nations recovery from the COVID epidemic. As an advocate for all families in my regions, I will fight for this issue.
The government has through ignorance and incompetence allowed this problem for far too long and its time to fix it. Stopping unnecessary regulations and crony capitalism are critical.
As a gun owner, I am an advocate for gun rights, support responsible gun ownership and will oppose any legislation, such as HR5717 that infringes upon the 2nd Amendment.
I support strong control of our nations borders, knowing who is entering our country, and enforcement of our nations immigration laws and not rewarding those who violate them.
The petty bickering in D.C. needs to stop. I believe in putting my country and states needs above partisan politics and California's attempt to take over Washington State politics. Learn More
You need a representative who understands the complex issues our region and nation are facing, someone who is willing to fight for you, and someone who believes government is here to serve the people above all else.
