Central Committee Candidate

If you are a delegate to Iowa’s 1st District Republican Convention coming up on April 28 (or know someone who is), this page is for you.

I am running for a seat on the Republican State Central Committee from Iowa’s 1st District.  Below you will find information about me and some links to some of my thoughts.  I would appreciate your vote at the district convention.

I believe the republican form of government, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, is the best political structure to facilitate our freedoms. But the Constitution and the republican structure alone cannot produce nor guarantee these blessings. It takes people who are willing to practice and promote the principles of freedom. I am running to be part of a team making the Republican Party an organization that lives up to its name. Learn more about my work at AmericanBackbone.us.
