Age: 74. (11/16/39, Cambridge, MA).

Arizona since: 2003

Occupation: Independent residential water treatment specialist, 29 years.

Marital: Married

Children: 2

Education: B.S., marketing, Northeastern University.

Political experience: None.

Interests: Youth programs.

Two biggest issues: Economic development: eliminate sales tax. Education: earmark a percentage of education budget that must go to teachers.

Budget priorities: I am for increasing revenue by continuing to make Arizona more attractive to foreign businesses.

Fiscal philosophy: Conservative.

Common Core: These are standards agreed upon by a number of states, not the federal government. These standards are voluntary and not to be confused with curricula. Curricula are still the purview of the local school board.

Gifts to elected officials: I am not yet familiar with these laws.

Transparency in government: This must be in a free society.

Pro-life / pro-choice: I am personally against abortion, but believe that this is an extremely personal choice that should be made by the individual, not the government.

Public policy advice: For the past 11 years, my passion has been building a community service organization dedicated to providing youth programs for kids in Pinal County. In so doing, I have learned how to bring a wide cross-section of people together for the purpose of building a consensus for the common good. My success has been due to the fact that I am willing to surround myself with those more knowledgeable than I, and to take their advice. If elected, I would continue to employ these skills for the good of Arizona and for the good of LD 8.
