Serving YOU In Josephine County

Together, We Can Build Back Our Community. Let’s AIM HIGH Together!

Hi, Citizens of Josephine County. Like you, I love living in a county where your voice can be heard!

As a resident of this County for 43 years, I graduated from Hidden Valley High School, attended College at Rogue Community College, worked here, joined the Air Force, met my wife here, and own property in this great County we call home.

I'm a business owner who also volunteers as a Sheriff Department Volunteer, an Oregon State Police Volunteer, served on the Grants Pass Chamber of Commerce, the Grants Pass Association of Realtors Board Member, as Vice President of the Enlisted Association of the National Guard Oregon and made the highest Non-Commissioned Rank in the Air Force of Chief Master Sergeant.

I have always worked as an entrepreneur, and I run and operate two Franchises, a Real Estate firm, Realty Executives Southern Oregon, and #222, a professional Real Estate photography and video company both serving Josephine County. I love to be challenged and do not take NO for an answer, so Aim High is what the Air Force has taught me.

This Community has given me great opportunities to excel, and I want you to have them, too! I have served my Community, state, and nation in the U.S. Air Force, Oregon Air National Guard, the Air Force Reserve, and now the Command Chief for the Pacific Region Air Force Auxiliary Civil Air Patrol.

In addition to my Real Estate jobs and the military, I enjoy serving my Community at Grants Pass Broadcasting. I have been an announcer full-time and now part-time with a regular show on Saturday mornings on KLDR FM and afternoons on KAJO FM.

Community service is important to me, and my whole life, I have served others first, and now I want to serve you as your next County Commissioner!

I feel that my experience living here, working here, and serving in the Government can help me serve my Community even better.

I am married to a Grants Pass Native, Stefani Barnett, and have three beautiful girls who all were born and raised in Josephine County. I am a well-rounded person, you could say, with experiences that have positioned me to run for Government.

Why serve now, you ask? I want Josephine County to maintain its strength and greatness, but there's always room for improvement. Over the years, our County has struggled with budgeting, funding, and earning the trust of its people. My goal is to restore faith in our county government and to represent you, the people of Josephine County.
