I have lived in Alaska for 41 years now with my wife who I met in college. Together we have raised two children who both attended Anchorage public schools and both went on to obtain college degrees.
I was a math teacher in the public school system in Anchorage for 28 years. Currently I worked ant the Ted Stevens International Airport for 10 years, and now I have been driving a motor coach transporting tourists in Alaska. I have seen education, and a diversified tourist economy first hand. My life experiences would be an asset in Juneau.
I continue to volunteer my time as a researcher for Alaska Policy Forum, and am a member of the House Sustainable task force.
I consistently have been a strong supporter of the traditional PFD program. The legislature has ignored existing law and has appropriated the bulk of the PFD program away to prop up excessive government spending. I would work hard to help dismantle SB 26 and restore the traditional PFD formula. Additionally, I believe the state should restore all prior deductions back to the people.
