I am a city councilman in Broadwater, Nebraska, a mighty city of 128 people, appointed in December 2012 and re-elected in November 2014. After the election in November 2016, I am now chairman pro-tempore (vice-mayor).
Before I was railroaded into political service, I was (and still am) an erotic Romance novel editor.
That skill came from my previous work, as an Aviation Electronics Technician 1st Class in the US Navy, from which I was retired disabled after seventeen years service.
My shadowbox, with the details of my service, awards, and postings is available at Navy Together We Served.
