Having always been involved on local, regional, and state boards and committees, he has seen the importance of citizen input and involvement on critical issues. Water rights, Federal and State grazing leases, access issues, landowner rights, timber harvest, and wildlife concerns are all issues he has dealt with publicly and privately.

Education and the deteriorating public roads and bridges are another critical area of concern that will need to be addressed as an investment in our future, as well as resource jobs and responsible resource management.
