Lee.pngThank you for visiting my campaign website.  I am honored to serve on the JCCC Board of Trustees and welcome the opportunity to run for a second term on the board.

While local elections don't receive the same attention that national elections receive, they have the greatest impact on our families.  I'm sure that each of you has some connection to Johnson County Community College.

I know the importance of JCCC in our community and have first-hand knowledge of the vital role a strong college serves in educating our citizens and in growing our local economy.

Before graduating from KU, I attended JCCC, as did my mother, father, and three younger brothers.  It was an excellent foundation for me before continuing on to a four-year institution and ultimately graduating from law school and starting my own law firm.

In addition to the wonderful educational opportunities which JCCC affords our citizens, it is also a valuable economic development asset.  Local businesses must have a well-educated workforce to compete and grow.

I know that I won't have an opportunity to meet each and every voter in a county as large as ours, but please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you might have.

I appreciate your support and I hope to earn your vote.
