After serving (1957-1961) a peace time tour in the United States Marine Corps, I served with the New Mexico State Police (1964-1985). My career with the New Mexico State Police ended when I retired as commander of its criminal division at the rank of captain.
I have lived in Edgewood, New Mexico since 1985. When Edgewood was incorporated, I was elected as one of five governing body members. Since then, except for a two year period, I have continued to serve on the Edgewood town council. I am a member of Valley View Christian Church in Edgewood and I enjoy volunteer work of just about any kind, whether through my church or my community.
I am a passionate Pro-Life advocate, and a Christian that believes Jesus was involved in politics, and we (Christians) should follow Christ in ways pleasing to Him and our LORD.
