About Greg

A Lifetime in Service.
"I have spent a lifetime in service to my country and community as a navy veteran, police officer, and teacher. I felt called to run for office by circumstances not of my choice - the kidnapping, sexual assault, and murder of my daughter, Kelsey. I have used my time in office to make a difference for our children, fellow crime victims, families, and local businesses. Please help me continue to work for all of us."
