I am running because I'm concerned about the direction that our country is heading. Over the next several weeks, "Jeff in his own words" videos will be added to this site as he discusses his thoughts. (For more information -- see "Issues & Concerns" below)
In a lot of ways, I’m just a regular Joe, a typical American guy—that was lucky enough to marry the most perfect woman—Ann.
Our family was rich, but financially poor. The first house that I remember was a small rental, on a gravel road, with no in-door plumbing, and only cold water to the kitchen sink. Regardless of our financial status, I was blessed with good parents, family and a community to guide me. Through education and hard-work—I earned a Bachelors (B.S.) of Accountancy with a minor in computer science.
Early in my professional experience, I started work in a CPA Accounting firm, then moved into software development, followed by large companies in the electric/water utility industry, mining, banking, Maricopa County government, and pharmaceutical distribution. Mid-way through my career I worked as an independent consultant for: the Federal Government (Freddie Mac), CEG/Goldman Sachs, Honeywell, Mexico-American Interstate Transmission System, insurance, and others. I concluded my working career (May 2022) in the Capital Market group of Wells Fargo.
While I (usually) enjoyed my work—my real interests are U.S. & world politics, macroeconomics, finance, etc. I’m generally curious, comfortable with details, and always like to—know how things work.
As for the normal everyday life stuff—I do my own lawn, trees, house maintenance and most repairs on my old Land Cruisers. My one chemical dependency is caffeine, in the form of coffee.
I consider myself blessed to have faith, a loving wife, friends, and to be a citizen of the United States of America!
I am not a one issue candidate. My concerns are broader—even structural.
I support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The rights and protections provided by our Founding Fathers are being eroded.
A short-list of my concerns include:
· The economy and inflation, which undermines families' abilities to meet their monthly bills and save for the future.
· The current national debt and future unfunded liabilities.
· Protection of individual liberties (1st, 2nd, 4th 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Amendments)
· The over-reach of the Federal Government (10th Amendment)
· The Administrative State, often referred to as the 4th Branch of Government
· Preservation of Our National Sovereignty
