Platform

One of the greatest threats to America is the fact that our educational system is not thoroughly teaching the next generation morals, American exceptionalism, free enterprise, the Constitution, the dangers of communism and the value of hard work.

Why I am running

Because I believe education is a key to success in every area of our lives and because it is important to have a conservative voice at the table. Rock Valley College is a gem in our community and I want to play a role in helping it grow and reach every segment of the diverse communities and counties it serves (Boone, DeKalb, McHenry, Ogle, Stephenson, Winnebago).

I want to use my business and community service involvement and experience to contribute to the growth of Rock Valley College (RVC).
