I have resided in Austin County a total of 34 years, continuously for the last 29 years. My family roots go back many generations in the county. I am a 1977 graduate of Bellville High School and am currently self-employed as a licensed electrician as well as a Certified Service Technician in the LP gas industry.
My wife Becky and I attend St. John’s Lutheran Church in New Ulm. We feel strongly about our community and are involved as much as possible in many organizations. I am a firm believer in volunteering and working towards making Austin County a better place to live. Becky and I have worked with Habitat For Humanity and I have given my time installing the electrical systems in every habitat home built in Austin County at no charge.
I have been a volunteer of Austin County EMS and am currently a First Responder for EMS calls. I have been involved in the fire service with Cat Spring VFD for 19 years, Austin County Fire Fighters Association for 19 years and New UIlm VFD for 2 years. I hold numerous certifications in the Emergency Response Fields and continuously work towards staying informed and educated.
I am currently Treasurer for Cat Spring VFD and have been for 17 years, as well as Austin County Fire Fighters Association for 17 years, and New UIm VFD for 2 years. Over the last 17 years, I have transitioned these positions from manual ledgers to computer based accounting systems. During this time I have been responsible for accounts payable, accounts receivable, tax preparation and billing, as well as being an executive committee board member of these organizations.
While in the work force, I have held many supervisory and management positions. All of my previous employers have extended an open invitation should I ever seek future re-employment with them. I am dependable, honest and trustworthy.
As your Treasurer, I will bring a broad range of skills, knowledge and experience to the position, and I am counting on your vote.
