I am a natural-born Alaskan, raised on Prince William Sound, and a graduate of Valdez High School. The first summer after graduation, I was here in the Valley fighting the Miller’s Reach fire in the Division of Forestry Intern Crew. It was that summer that I fell in love with the Mat-Su. I went on to study civil engineering and construction management at UAF. The siren call of fat paychecks as a tradesman proved too much, and I entered a career as a construction surveyor and heavy equipment operator working in Mat-Su and across the state.

Meet Tim

I have worked all over our great state. From Fairbanks to Southcentral, the oilfields of Prudhoe Bay to the Canadian border. But the Mat-Su is home. With it’s ready access to outdoor activities like hunting, shooting, fishing, and snowboarding, plus the social events and hometown feel of nearby Palmer, there is no place in the world I would rather be. I live in Butte with the woman of my dreams and an amazing daughter.

I am running for re-election because we need a working Alaskan on the Mat-Su Assembly. A mathematician with callouses on his hands. A problem solver who listens to the community. Someone who knows what it takes to bring a project in on time and under budget. My primary focus as an assemblyman has been to strengthen the public process and empower the people of our community’s role in government. I've pushed for more public input on every decision the Borough makes, both from individuals and from our community councils, giving the power back to the people, where it belongs!
