Why do you want to serve on the WMMB Board?
I am an active dairy producer in Vernon County and therefore am interested in the board seat for District 21. I am an incumbent running for reelection. I feel that I have a strong voice and knowledge of our current dairy situation. I am interested in the vacated seat because of the need for a progressive dairy producer to fill the District 21 seat. I can appreciate what it means to serve on a board and feel that my past experiences will be a positive addition to WMMB. This decision to express my interest to become a board member is not short founded. For many years, I have had a desire to understand the mechanics of WMMB and its positive attributes to our dairy industry. It is my sincerest desire to be selected as District 21's board representative.
What else should dairy producers in your area know about you?
I am a strong voice for agriculture, a forward thinker and have served on several boards for Dairy Farmers of America plus local school and church boards.
