Thank you for taking the time to consider voting for me. I am asking for the opportunity to represent this community because I want to make our voices heard in Madison. As I have visited thousands of homes in our district I have heard your concerns. I understand that people are looking for someone that has proven in the past that they will not fall prey to the Madison machine. I heard that you want a person to stand for the people and families of the community, and NOT special interests or donors.

I will be a voice for the people of the 97th District. All the people, fairly and equitably. I promise to continue to avoid the "power plays" of the small groups that are always telling the rest of us what is right. I am genuine in my desire to serve and make my efforts matter. I am asking for the opportunity to have the honor of serving in the Assembly and represent us, the people!

EXPERIENCE MATTERS

I have been involved in the community since 1995. I have a four year record as an elected Supervisor. During that time I proved that I will use my efforts to thoroughly understand the details and work to resolve issues. I have a record of standing firm on my principals when the manipulation of politics gets turned up. I expect to serve the 97th District with integrity and honor, and I expect that residents will be proud of my work.

My #1 Goal  -Education and Common Core

Good schools, become GREAT SCHOOLS, when teachers and administrators take ownership for their work. That is a maxim that can be applied to anyone's job. I will work to restore local control of curriculum and methods to our GREAT TEACHERS and ADMINISTRATORS!

I was recognized by the Education Freedom Coalition in Atlanta, Georgia as the Candidate that is standing up for our kids! The sooner we act the sooner we can get on a path to restore strong standards and give our great schools the ability to take ownership of the results we demand as a community.

MY RECORD ON TAXATION AND SPENDING

Authentic Conservative Leader 

LOWERED Property Taxes saving tax payers hundreds of thousands of dollars

I authored the Town of Waukesha adopted 2014 Budget which  REDUCED SPENDING

While other candidates talk about support for reducing the burden tax payers carry- they have a record of selling out the voters and raising taxes - raising spending and even raising their pay.. Perry and Cummings record shows that in 2014 alone they voted to RAISE SPENDING over 1.1 MILLION DOLLARS. 

EXPERIENCE MATTERS!

YOU CAN RELY ON THE PAST RESULTS TO PREDICT FUTURE ACTIONS!

Community Connection

People ask what separates the Candidates. I say that I have served the community over the last 2 decades. While others have served political candidates or the party- I have served the families of Waukesha.

9 year Varsity Coach Waukesha South High School 

3 Term Elected Supervisor (2010 - 2014)

Adult & Children's Ministry - Fox River Christian Church (2010 - Present)

  • Adult Bible Study Leader
  • Upward Sports Coach and Waukesha Campus Site Director
  • Child Care  & Summer VBS 

Citizen Board Member Waukesha West Bypass Citizen CCCS (2010 - Present)

EXPERIENCE MATTERS BECAUSE IN ORDER TO REPRESENT THE COMMUNITY YOU NEED TO EXPERIENCE THE COMMUNITY THROUGH SOCIALLY SERVING THE COMMUNITY

* My wife and I moved to Waukesha in 2004. I served the community before I was living in the community(Waukesha South Varsity Coach 1995-2005). It was through that service that I knew this area was where I wanted to lay down roots and raise my family. The gap of service between 2005 and 2010 corresponds with the birth of my children in 2005 and 2007.
