I have a B.S. from Marian University, a M.S. from Butler University, and a law degree from Indiana University. I retired from Rolls-Royce after 37 years of service, 22 on the manufacturing floor, and 15 in management. I was a practicing attorney for 10 years after I left Rolls-Royce, focusing on consumer bankruptcy.
I have canoed whitewater throughout the Midwest, from the Embarrass in Missouri to the Youghiogheny in Pennsylvania. I have toured the U.S. by motorcycle from Georgia to Washington State, from Texas to Canada. I was Snipe sailboat fleet champion three consecutive years. I was one of the best bankruptcy attorneys in the area.
When I acquired my first horse, he had not been ridden in three years, and was convinced he was still a stallion. With a lot of patience and persistence I earned his trust and confidence, and he has become my second best friend, after my wife.
As a Democrat running in a county that is 70 percent Republican, my chances of winning election are remote, but we cannot have a democracy without an election, and we cannot have an election without candidates. If I am elected, I will apply the same principles to my office as I applied to earning the trust and confidence of my horse. I am not hidebound by ideology, and I like to think outside the box to find solutions to problems. I throw myself wholeheartedly into any task I undertake, and being Hendricks County Commissioner would be no exception.
When you go to the polls in November, I ask you to look past the first button on the machine and evaluate the candidates individually, not by party affiliation.
