Limits for Government - Liberty for YOU
"There is an important difference between a good idea and a good law."
The US & Montana Constitutions are not just interesting historical documents, but are the guideposts for legislation. As a legislator, I will measure proposed bills against the Constitutions and ask the question, "Is this really our job?" before voting on any of the several thousand good ideas that come up each session.
There is an important difference between a good idea and a good law.
Just as each of us must do in our day to day lives managing our families and our households, so must state government make good decisions about spending the money of hard-working Montanans.
We are required by Montana Constitution to have a balanced budget, and we must do it while also meeting our responsibilities.
A legislator is a public servant, and as such must listen to the boss - the people of their district. I am a conservative who will follow the principles of limited government and individual liberty.
I will listen to all of my constituents and do my best to be available and responsive. I look forward to working with you and for you.
1st Amendment - US Constitution
