I am honored to represent State House District 11 serving both Benton and Washington Counties in the Springdale, Lowell and Rogers areas. My experience in state government has shown me the need for strong conservative leadership in the legislature. Left to its own devices, government will grow and become more invasive in people’s personal lives. I know the answer is not more government but less government. Small business and entrepreneurship are the backbone and lifeblood of this region, and I will fight for lower taxes and against the red tape that limits and burdens these businesses. I am 100% pro-life and will fight to defend life of the unborn, protect your 2nd Amendment fundamental rights, and push back against invasive liberal ideology in our schools.
