I was blessed to be able to grow up in Stevensville. After graduating from Montana State University in Engineering, I returned to the Bitterroot Valley to work for my wife’s family business, Applebury Survey. I have done surveying and land planning in the valley for the past 25 years, having spent the past 6 years as the Ravalli County Planning Department Administrator. I have been married to my wife, Darlene, for 26 years and we have 4 wonderful children.

I have been involved in politics since helping form and becoming president of a voter education group, Voters Opportunity To Educate (VOTE) in 2000. Getting involved with the Republican Central Committee in the mid 2000’s, I have held the positions of precinct captain, treasurer, vice chairman and chairman. I have also been elected to the State GOP Executive Board for the past 6 years and was recently elected as the State Vice Chairman for the Montana Republicans.

With the remarkable team we have in our Central Committee, we have successfully created a deep red county in Ravalli County. With that same teamwork and determination, the Ravalli County team is now poised to make Montana a solid Republican State

After arriving with my husband, Hollis, I hit the ground running with the notion that this great State is worth protecting for our future generations. I am the “Let’s get ‘er done” person and will always be where ever the action is. With vast front line experience I have seen many awesome leaps forward in our county and will never get tired of winning. I can be found lobbying for the side of the unborn as well as for rights to keep and bear arms. If I can just figure out how to arm the unborn there will be no more abortion issues.

 

I have worked at the State Central Committee level for the last eleven years and have taken part in many significant issues. I carried the amendment which became our State Platform Preamble and have been in the fight for numerous platform upgrades.

 

My passion is events and putting them on. I am like my husband in that I am a strong Christian, Constitutional, Conservative, Republican.​​
