I have been a resident of Girard since 1973. My first Girard job started at Producers Coop in 1966, lasting for 26 years. I became the manager the last 5 of those 26 years. I also worked as a Branch Manager at Bartlett Coop in Oswego, KS. The last 14 years of my career life was with Beachner Grain.
My wife, Janet, and I have been married 44 years, producing 3 children; Jody, Kevin and Lacie. We also have 8 grandchildren, plus 2 great grandchildren.
I enjoyed volunteering at the Girard Fire Department for 15 years. I am presently a Board Member of the Rural Fire District #4.
My reason for becoming a Council member is to see if I can impact the community in which I live. My resolve is trying to keep our city vibrant and alive and a place people would truly like to call home.
