The 62nd session of the Montana Legislature was an exciting and eventful session. It presented many challenges and difficult issues; however, I worked hard to represent the people of Billings and HD 52 every day. I am currently serving on Business and Labor; Fish, Wildlife and Parks, and Natural Resources Committees. Each committee saw very high-profile bills and I paid close attention to each of them.

I have and will continue to support and push for legislation that supports a sound economy, a good education system, and clean water and air. I believe small businesses serve as the backbone of our state’s economy by creating and providing jobs. I started and operated a successful small business in Montana for 25 years. I know firsthand what it takes to keep this vital segment of our economy strong and growing. My business experience is needed at the state legislature to make the tough decisions to get our Montana economy moving again.

I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve the citizens of Billings and Montana.
