Industry Expert

Mike is a well rounded, experienced Leader, with more than 40 years of experience in the Petroleum, Transportation, Wholesale, Retail, Restaurant and Automotive industries, including many prominent positions on industry boards and organizations, Mike is uniquely suited to work on issues regarding Wyoming’s Economy & Natural Resources. He agrees with the stance of the Wyoming Republican Party that:

“The Wyoming Republican Party believes in state’s primacy over their water, wildlife, minerals and natural resources; supports any actions which assures Wyoming’s primacy over its water; ie the doctrine of prior appropriations.”

Mike also believes in the ideal that America should be as energy independent as possible.

The Only Purpose Of The Government Is The Protection Of Rights

Liberty is indivisible from economic freedom. The free market economy is the economic system most compatible with the requirements of personal freedom and constitutional government. Government’s undue interference in the market, as well as the fiscal irresponsibility of government, results in economic inequity and actually undermines personal freedom. There exists no fundamental right to the fruits of another person’s labor.

All taxes collected must be used for the constitutional purposes of government. It is irresponsible to run up debts that are passed on to our children and grandchildren. Taxes should never be more than necessary.

Religious Freedom

As a man of faith, Mike supports the Republican party’s stand on religious freedom:

The freedom to practice one’s faith is a fundamental right secured by our Constitution. The First Amendment does not require the expulsion of religion from public life. We must keep in mind the Judeo-Christian principles of the founding Fathers when they wrote it; the practice of faith under this tradition encourages good moral behavior and the development of character that helps secure the other fundamental bases of our national citizenship. Freedom of religion includes the right to abstain from actions contrary to ones’ religious beliefs.

Right To Work

Mike supports the Right To Work law. He also will support policies that empower local businesses to create jobs and improve the local economy.  As a businessman, Mike firmly believes that the prosperity of a county, state, and nation comes down to the state of its economy. Fremont County and Wyoming are in a unique position to capitalize on Agriculture, Natural Resources and Tourism – the staples of the Wyoming state economy. Mike will support policies that promote the growth of job-creating businesses, as well as energy independence.

The Right To Bear Arms

The right of individuals to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed. Individuals must never be prevented from defending life, liberty, or property.

Not only does the Second Amendment secure the right to defend ourselves, our family, and our property – an inherent right – it also secures the other rights listed in the Bill of Rights. A refugee from communist Europe commented, “America is the greatest nation on earth because it’s the only one with a First Amendment. We’re the only nation with a First Amendment because we’re the only one with a Second Amendment.”  

I am firmly pro-gun, and I believe that guns are an important part of our way in life in Wyoming. For those that are interested, I have included a copy of my NRA survey. I have submitted this survey and am waiting for the NRA to provide me with a grade, but I leave it up to the people of Wyoming to read and decide for themselves.

Right To Life

The Declaration of Independence affirms that we have unalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator and life is the first. The Framers realized this right was crucial to our society and accordingly constructed our government around it. The right to life respects the worth and dignity of every individual human being, born or unborn, including unborn children. I stand proudly on the side of LIFE and with fellow conservatives to say that life is precious and that unborn children must be protected.
