Term ends Dec. 31, 2025
I grew up in Nevada – it is home to me. I graduated with the class of 1987, attended DMACC, and then Iowa State. After being away for a few years, I decided to return to Nevada and work at our family ag construction company. After getting married, we lived in a surrounding community for a short time but decided to purchase our first home in Nevada. We wanted our kids to experience the same small-town, everyone-knows-everyone feeling and attend the school system that I experienced and thrived from. I have enjoyed many seasons as a volunteer coach in both boys’ and girls’ soccer, football, basketball, baseball, and softball. I was first appointed to the City council in 2006 and elected in 2010. I love our community and am proud to be a member of it. A few years ago, my wife Leslie and I bought that family ag construction company from my father because Nevada is our home.
Family includes his wife, Leslie, and their three children: Sarah (and her fiancé AJ) live in western Iowa; Peyton and Samuel are both students at Nevada High School. And if anyone follows us on social media, we have the world’s best nap-taking dog named Tag.

His feelings about serving
Every voice is important. We, as leaders, grow as we hear and learn from our community. I enjoy hearing from our community and trying to help find solutions, answer questions, explain the reasons and whys of how things work, and act as a sounding board when needed. I know by working together, we will continue to find solutions, protect our assets, grow our resources, and maintain this amazing community for generations.
