Small businesses are the foundation of the Kentucky economy.
My wife Lisa and I have owned and operated a small flooring retailer in Somerset for the last fifteen years. I understand the sacrifices and decisions that business owners have to make every day.
My mission as your Representative will be to work with my fellow legislators to create an environment that fosters growth and opportunity for work. The people of the 83rd district deserve a voice in Frankfort ready to represent their values of honesty, hard work, and determination.
I believe life begins at conception.
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee.” (Jeremiah 1:5)
Roe v. Wade must be overturned. I will support all efforts on the state legislative level to restrict access to and the availability of abortion on demand.
I will make every effort to protect the unborn. Currently over 2500 abortions are performed in the United States every day. Along with other conservative legislators I will continue the effort to make Kentucky an abortion free state.

Schools and teachers have a tremendous calling and responsibility. Teachers are asked to do more today with less. They should never have to take money out of their own pockets to meet the needs of their students. I will support efforts to fully fund public education. Textbook, instructional material, and transportation cost funding must be addressed.
Our public schools must be strong, thriving citadels of learning. As State Representative, I will work to assure that the school systems in the 83rd District have the resources they need to fulfill their immense task.
Recently, a grassroots movement to protect our Second Amendment rights has swept across Kentucky. All four counties in the 83rd district have passed Second Amendment Sanctuary County resolutions. These resolutions put state and federal officials on notice that these counties, their citizens, and local officials believe strongly in the United States Constitution, and will not allow the protection guaranteed in the Second Amendment to be infringed.
As your next State Representative, I will uphold the Second Amendment and oppose any proposed law that would infringe on your right to keep and bear arms.
