He and his wife moved to Post Falls 7 years ago and love the community, parks and says he will, "bring a fresh set of eyes to the city." He is in favor of managing growth and planning for the long term. He has no agenda or "plan" other than listening and working to support the maintenance of a safe and healthy community. He is not in favor of always taking the 3% in property taxes each year, stating, "If the budget is balance and you can maintain the city within the means, why put that kind of financial burden on the taxpayers."
