"I believe our children and grandchildren deserve meaningful opportunities in the arts, sciences, and trades that, if available, would help them explore their strengths."

I am pleased  to announce my candidacy for the Osage Nation Congress.  Over the last decade I have served as Director of the Osage Nation Roads Department and seen the potential of our Nation to overcome our differences.  Also, while serving on boards in the community, I have seen the potential for our Nation to work with the city, county and state.  This type of cooperation produces results that benefit all Osages, especially our elders and children.
