In this part of the country, a $70,000+ job is good pay. If you are like most folks, you expect someone drawing that pay to work full-time to earn it.
If elected to the position of Assistant Principal Chief, I will work full-time to serve you and your family, and to reach and maintain the goals I’ve set out in this campaign. I will not have outside professional obligations of any type, period. I do own 51% of four commercial properties in downtown Pawhuska, but that requires only a couple of hours per month of time, a responsibility easily shifted to my partner.
During the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Congress, my session attendance record was 99.35%, 100%, and 100%, respectively. The position of Assistant Principal Chief is an all-day, every day position, and I will bring the same level of dedication to that position if elected.
I also believe we are here to serve the Nation and its people, not to be served. When Congress considered a retirement plan, I repeatedly voted against it in committee and on the floor. After it was established, I did not enroll. I have never signed up for the Health Benefit Card.
Leadership matters, and setting an example is important. If you believe the Assistant Principal Chief should be 100% focused on the business of the Nation and minimize their own benefit in doing so, I ask for your support and your vote.
