I am a Journeyman Lineman, currently serving as Business Manager for Local # 44 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. I previously served three terms in the Montana House of Representatives and have always been a community activist. I am a lifelong Montanan, one of 8 children and currently reside in Butte. I am originally from Great Falls and we have a family cabin near Craig. I have lived next to or had a place on the Missouri River my entire life and have seen many changes to the river and its shoreline. I am married to my girlfriend, Elaine, and we have 4 daughters and 7 grandchildren. We all love the river and feel we owe much to it. We, as a family are committed to its health and preservation.
