|Info||I have called Dent County, Missouri, home for most of my life. I’m a third generation Missourian and, along with my wife, can trace our family roots back to our country’s colonial beginnings. This rich family history has given us a deep and abiding respect for the United States Constitution and all who have fought and sacrificed to protect it. |
My diverse work background includes owning and running the family farm and ranch. I was also a volunteer and professional firefighter for many years, reaching the rank of Lieutenant. A back injury in 1994 ended my career as a first responder, but not my desire to help my neighbors. In 2008, I ran for Lieutenant Governor of Missouri on the Republican platform against Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder. While I didn’t win the election, I found that God had other plans for me.
I’m a firm believer in Divine Inspiration. We are all called by our Creator to serve Him in some form – whether it’s teaching a classroom of young children or leading a great nation such as ours back to prosperity. My strong sense of patriotism and my deep Christian faith are guiding me to run for the Office of the President of the United States.
Now that I’ve opened the gates for my Presidential run, I wish to challenge my competitors to run a clean race – none of the mudslinging and trash that Americans have endured in the past. Let’s make this a conversation about the issues facing our great nation, not about assaulting one’s character
My platform is simple – we need to return our country back to what our founding fathers envisioned it to be. As we have seen recently, our government is no longer about us, but about special interests and personal greed. This needs to change – the sooner, the better.
I think often of what George Washington had said when asked to come out of retirement and serve as our first President, “Have I not done enough for my country?” I believe that service to country, family, and God is a lifetime commitment. I’m prepared to answer the call to serve.
Thank you and may God pour His Blessings upon you and those you love.
