I am a life-long resident of Tomah area. I have been married to my wife Dilynn for 13 years. I am a 1977 graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Madison School of Business in accounting. I operated a family business with my father in downtown Tomah from 1968 to 1998 and I will retire from the Tomah Area School District support staff after 16 years in August. I am pleased to be giving back for all the opportunities I have been given.
