About Mike

The most inspiring part of this campaign has been the reaction we've received as we've handed out hundreds and even thousands of copies of the U.S. Constitution. Residents of Cache Valley and across the state have seen how easily individual liberties can be taken away with the stroke of a pen. My appreciation for our founding fathers and their divinely inspired writings has absolutely grown and strengthened over the past year.

I am so excited to consider having the chance to be your voice at the Utah State Legislature. I look forward to votes that reduce the burden of taxes and the size of government. I look forward to setting an example of conservative voting that ensures free speech, the right to bear arms, ensuring property rights and enshrining the family as the fundamental unit of society. I look forward to reminding other Republican legislators that Utahns expect lawmakers to protect their inalienable rights. 

My wife Sallie and I moved to North Logan 30 years ago so I could attend graduate school at Utah State University. We’ve been blessed with 4 children and 9 grandchildren. I am a small-business owner that designs and develops teaching and training materials, and Sallie is a speech pathologist for the Cache County School District. Cache Valley is where we call home.
