Favorite President and Why:
Ronald Reagan. His presidency created pride in America and restored hope for a better world.
"When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat."
"If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth."
"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."
He drew a circle that shut me out-

But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In !

Reason for Seeking Public Office:
"I am running for my family and the people of District 58. I believe our district deserves a Representative who listens, is accessible and shares the traditional values of Northeast Arkansas."
Like many of you, I have watched as one scandal after another is exposed in Washington as well as in Arkansas. Even Northeast Arkansas isn?t exempt from:
? Broken trust
? And a general lack of ethical behavior
Several months ago I decided I could no longer sit on the sidelines and do nothing. I am running for District 58 State Representative because I am compelled to do so.
