2nd Vice President

This former Farm Kid, Marine, Truck Driver, and now a Diesel mechanic has had a lot of adventures and travel in his life. Some of his favorite times have been spent with the Mesa County Sheriff's Posse. Being able to help in the Grand Valley community has been a rewarding adventure, for sure. The generosity of the people of the Grand Valley never fails to surprise, especially during the annual food drive. Riding in Parades on his horse, Pardner has also been very rewarding and he is looking forward to many more years alongside his fellow Posse members.
