I’m a progressive who understands that purchased policy and bought bureaucrats are destroying our democracy. I am a union carpenter that has a strong union family history. My wife daughter and I are proud of our fight for better wages insurance and retirement. In 2016 I joined the Bernie fight for the people and knocked doors in Missouri, Iowa, and Kentucky. I’m now on the Boone county Dems committee, Our Revolution mid-MO committee, 47th district vice chair. We fought to win the Missouri state convention as I was a Missouri state Bernie delegate. I also went to Philly to protest and speak out at the national convention although I was not able to become a national delegate.
