Office Sought: Decatur County Council (incumbent)
Q: What drives you to enter/remain in/return to the arena of elected public service?

Q: As someone who may be serving Greensburg/Decatur County in office in 2013 and beyond, what is one thing, more than any other, you want to see accomplished?
A: I would like to see the Greensburg airport situation settled; however, I am not a fan of eminent domain.
Q: Describe your experience with business. Have you ever owned or managed one?
A: No, I haven’t, however I give my utmost attention to any business that comes to this area.
Q: Do you believe city/county government should contribute to charitable causes? How should contributions to charitable causes be determined?
