My wife, Pam, and I have called Cape Girardeau our home for nearly 27 years. We raised our sons here and now enjoy helping to raise our grandchildren who live in the area. We love our city because of its beauty, its cultural, educational and economic diversity, and its recreational and entertainment options. We have come to understand the strengths of our community as well as its needs from our state government. It would be my honor to represent the voters of our area in Jefferson City in our fight for economic opportunity, neighborhood security, and personal liberty.
