From candidate Website
I was born in Eau Claire and graduated from North High School. Until recently I owned and operated Bob Smith Window Cleaning; the family business my father started. I began helping my Dad when I was 12 years old and went to work full-time with him after graduation to help build and grow the business.
I’ve gained a lot of experience as a business owner, having created hundreds of jobs over the years. I strongly support local industry and this experience helps me in my efforts to bring good jobs back to West Central Wisconsin; knowing that a business can be run responsibly and profitably.
As a husband and a proud father of two daughters, I am deeply committed to equal rights for women and to education. I have served as a volunteer, mentor and board member of many education committees and organizations, and as Chair of the Town of Brunswick from 2001 to 2007.
As a Representative to the State Assembly, I continued my dedication to serving my neighbors and have proved my leadership skills through my committee work, outreach efforts and bills that I authored and helped pass.
I truly care about my neighbors and about Wisconsin. I have worked faithfully to protect the values that make living in this area so rewarding – great schools, an independent spirit, involved citizens, a good work ethic, and a healthy standard of living.
