Biographical Info:
I am a U.S. Army Veteran with 30 years of service, multiple deployments and combat tours. I have witnessed some of the worst places on the planet and I am committed to making Minnesota one of the best. Upon retiring from the military, I became involved in our Veteran Community and am serving on the Executive Board of the WW2 Round Table, where serving veterans has been extremely rewarding. I am married to Tina Watson, a mental health therapist, and we are celebrating 30 plus years of marriage. We have two daughters in Stillwater Public Schools, a dog and a cat. For the past 20 plus years we have called Lake Elmo and the surrounding area home.
I am troubled at how ineffectively our state is run with crime, chaos & corruption on the rise! I am a leader with the qualities to make the necessary improvements to bring us together and on track for a prosperous, peaceful and unified future.
