I am your neighbor, and for the first time I am running to represent us in north-central Billings. I decided to run for the legislature because I believe the following:

We face important decisions about our future that include energy, education, and our environment. I want to work to help improve that future.
We must protect public access to our public lands and water.
We need to get Montana’s economy back on track.
We must support energy conservation and expand renewable energy development, providing good paying jobs, a new energy future and a healthy environment.

We must ensure that quality higher education is accessible and possible for anyone who wants it.
