I am a businessman have been self employed and owned businesses my entire life. I am a very innovative person and innovative thinker. Back in the early 90's when most were not even on the internet I was on a 480 computer writing HTML code, java scripts and creating website directories and websites for people and businesses.
When I heard the Concealed Carry Act in Illinois was finally passing I took the initiative to write a curriculum and submit it to the Illinois State Police. I also wrote the first and only Concealed Carry Training book which a lot of certified instructors purchased for themselves and their students. We desperately need an innovative person as our next Mayor of the City of Rockford. Here is more information on me:
