I am involved in local government and state legislative work. As a member of the Montana House of Representatives I have experience crafting policy for our state. In the legislature I serve on the Judiciary, Local Government and Transportation committees. Transportation is an area of interest for me. I have served as Chair of the Great Falls International Airport for 8 years and served as a Commissioner of Transportation for the State of Montana. I am always ready for a good political discussion. 

For the last 15 years the students at the University of Great Falls have helped me with a special camp called Camp Skychild. This camp provides services for children who have a parent in prison. This last year we held the camp on the Blackfeet Reservation at Glacier National Park.
