My motivation to become a candidate for Supervisor in Surprise Valley is because the financial crisis the county is facing is unprecedented in Modoc County's history. This crisis in all likelihood will effect the quality of our lives for years to come.
Surprise Valley has been my home for a long time. It's where I invested my life. So instead of burying my head in the sand, and hoping the problem will just go away, I've chosen to get involved.
Since 1979 I've been in the ranching business east of Cedarville. Farming and ranching is not an easy way to make a living. So consequently, over the years I've learned to handle money with care, and to think realistically and resourcefully. I understand the essence of public service, and if elected I'll do my best to help Modoc County get back on its feet, and I'll try and re instill trust and confidence back into county government.
