In recent years the values most of us hold dear in Libby, Lincoln County and Montana in general, have been under attack by liberal extremists. Too many leaders have compromised their core convictions in an attempt to get along with others or further their political ambitions. I do not believe a leader should be any different publicly than they are privately. I will work to promote and preserve traditional values, such as marriage, designed to be between one man and one woman. That every life has value, both born and unborn. I will stand in the gap to protect families of Lincoln County and Montana.
