Alaska is home.


I love Southeast Alaska and I love our region’s way of  life. As a representative of Southeast Alaska, I love that my job description is to help make our region more vibrant, sustainable, and resilient. I can’t imagine a better job description. That’s why I’m running for re-election: I want to keep working to help make our wet and rainy, island-speckled, beautiful part of the world a better place.

For the nuts-and-bolts of policies and my platform, check out the issues page. To get a sense of who I am, let me share a few but important principles I believe in:

I believe in the politics of humility: good ideas are good ideas no matter where they come from, and good people are good people no matter what party they belong to.

I serve as an Alaskan, not as a Democrat or a Republican; I believe bipartisanship and civility are as important to our politics as salmon and oil are to our economy.

I believe in the power of good ideas. Good ideas, with good execution, are the building blocks of progress. While good ideas can be big, most good ideas are small or subtle. I see the Alaska Legislature as a forum to advance and realize good ideas.

I really, really like hard work.

I am grateful for your consideration and I would be more grateful yet for your support.
