Having spent many years on the family dairy farm, Tony is no stranger to hard work. He received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Utah State University. He has worked in the nuclear, aerospace, computer, and industrial equipment manufacturing fields for most of his career. His unique process innovations have saved companies at least $2.1 million.
His eight years of service in the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee as Vice Chairman has earned him the respect of the Precinct Committeemen and local office holders. He is actively engaged in almost every facet of the Party, including committee positions, public events, and involvement at State Committee Meetings.
Tony has lived in Post Falls for the last 22 years with his wife of 39 years. Having five children, there are now three generations of his family that live here. He moved to Idaho from Colorado after his employer closed a plant and moved its manufacturing to Malaysia, losing 1,200 high tech individuals.
He is committed to vocational and technical training as a viable alternative to a college degree. He is an industry representative on a Career and Technical Education Advisory Board. In addition, he has served as a past Chairman of the local Society of Manufacturing Engineers, which has provided over $250k in donations to local technical school programs and individual students.
After he takes office as one of very few engineers in the Legislature, his training in seeking out the root causes of problems will allow him to identify legitimate solutions to complex issues facing Idaho.
