Sandpoint has been home to three generations of my family. The last two generations have been products of the local schools and state universities. So after finishing graduate school, it was only natural for me to return home to Sandpoint to raise a family. As a family, we are immersed in the community through involvement in numerous civic projects, clubs and schools. Kathy, my wife, is actively involved in the area schools and has served as a Trustee on the Lake Pend Oreille School Board. We work every day, as many people here do, to help keep the fabric of our wonderful community strong and Idaho a great state.
