Common Sense, Christian, Conservative
Filing is now closed for 2020 and I will be on the ballot in November for your State Representative.
My wife, Sarah, and I both graduated from MU. Sarah earned a Bachelor of Music degree and I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education degree with a certificate in Chemistry Education. I went on to receive my Masters of Science in Analytical Chemistry from PSU in 1992.
I have taught Chemistry and Physics at Sweet Springs, MO, Vandalia, MO and for the last 15 years in Moberly High School, Moberly, MO. My four children (Caleb, Joshua, Naomi and Anna) all graduated from Moberly High School. I am an Elder at Timberlake Christian Church where we have attended for all of our years in Moberly.
Press Release (Story in Missouri Times)
Common Sense-Our legislators need to use mid-Missouri common sense to decide when and if to produce legislation.
Christian- my faith in Christ guides me in everything I do in life.
Conservative- smaller, limited government was the desire of our founding fathers.
This campaign is only going to be successful with the help of volunteers. I hope the students I have taught at high school and in college as well as my family and friends will help spread the word and get out the vote for me in the 2020 primary and general election.
District 6 is most of Randolph and Macon County and a slice of Linn County. If you live in Macon, Cairo, Huntsville, Marceline or Moberly (north of Urbandale) you are probably in Missouri House District 6. Click below and put in your address to see your district and representative.
All life is a blessing from God. Life at all stages is sacred. The unborn child is life and should be protected by our Government and all of its citizens. Life is sacred from the moment of conception to the natural ending of our life.
Our country was founded by people fleeing a country that didn't allow for the free exercise of their religion. It is a fundamental principle of our government to allow individuals to worship God without governmental interference.
The 2nd Amendment guarantees American citizens the right to "keep and bear arms". This right must be protected and should not be infringed upon.
The government is best which governs the least. Limited government which provides the background in which we live but doesn't invade every part of our lives. The government should not be looked at to solve all of our problems.
Local control of education has always been the way education in America has thrived. Every student in Missouri deserves a high quality education even if he or she finds him or herself in a district with a failing school. Missouri must provide a method for all students to acquire a quality education.
The Physics definition of energy is the ability to do work. Work will take place in Missouri and elsewhere only if we continue to have cheap, reliable energy sources. 75% of our electricity in Missouri comes from coal fired power plants, and it is one of the reasons Missouri's electric prices are among the lowest in the nation. Coal, natural gas, and gasoline are the lifeblood of our economy, and we need to recognize this fact even as we pursue alternative energy sources. 97% of the electricity used in Missouri is not generated by wind or solar energy.
