On Tuesday night Melissa and I went to our caucus to find out who would be our new county and state delegates. As it turns out, I was nominated and elected to Precinct Vice-Chair and also county delegate. I have been wanting to become involved more in politics mainly because the State Legislature butchered the retirement benefits for Firefighters and Public Safety. There is a lot of frustration with our politicians in Washington D.C and it was very evident at the caucus meeting. The meeting was packed with a lot of first time attendee’s and I think a lot of it has to do with the people following Glen Beck and Sean Hannity and others. I listen to those talk radio shows from time to time. I think they have interesting viewpoints and for the most part, but sometimes their ultra conservative viewpoints bother me. My political perspective is conservative for the most part, but I like to hear and understand all sides of the discussions about current issues. I don’t always agree with the other side, but I try to build on common interests and take those valuable viewpoints to increase my knowledge. As I learn more, I will be able to make better educated decisions. We’ll see how this turns out, but I’m excited to become part of the solution instead of sitting back and waiting for others to take care of business.

I define myself as an easy going guy that likes to enjoy all that life has to offer. I'm married to an extremely patient woman that I love more than life and she still likes me despite all my shortcomings. We have 3 kiddo's that bring me more happiness than I thought I'd ever be able to experience. I'm privileged to have had the opportunity to be a firefighter for 10 years- a career that I love. I also loved my job as a dispatcher at AirMed! In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my family, road cycling, and any kind of outdoor activity. My interests include aviation(I have my pilots license), technological gadgetry (I'm a nerd), blogging, reading, and social media.
