“I have dedicated my life to serving the people of Craighead County. My 26 years of experience in emergency services has allowed me to connect with thousands of citizens in Craighead County. I have been there to assist in their time of need and hear about issues that are important to them and their families.”
“There are several issues that bind us together as a community. Your desire to feel safe and secure in your own homes, your need for well-maintained roads and better fiscal use of your taxpayer dollars are just a few examples of my future plans for Craighead County.”

“I will continue to assist our volunteer fire departments and our sheriff’s department by giving them all the tools, equipment and training they need to keep you safe and secure in your own homes. Courthouse security will be a priority as well. We must keep our employees and visitors safe in our courthouse.”
