“The ALP Class is mostly responsible for giving me the great opportunity of serving the people of Indiana and its Agriculture Industry. There is seldom a day that goes by that I don’t utilize the network of ALP, for council, advice, and most importantly, friendship!”

Family: Married to Rhonda for 39 years, she is a music teacher at Jefferson Elementary. We have two daughters, two son-in laws and the latest grandchildren count is 5.
Farmer: Raised on a dairy farm in Middlebury. After graduating from Michigan State University Institute of Ag Technology, I purchased our family dairy farm. Starting with 28 dairy cows in 1978, the business gradually expanded to over 500 cows and farming about 1,000 acres. In 2007, the business started a series of transitions to adapt to the economic realities of a challenging dairy business economy. The dairy cows were sold in 2017 and Crystal Valley Dairy Farms has transitioned to contract raising dairy heifers for two other dairy operations.
County Commissioner: First elected in 2004.
