Meet Steve

A loving husband of 21 years.  A doting father of five boys.  A senior-level information technology professional with 23 years of problem-solving experience.  A soccer coach and PTO volunteer and leader.  But, if you asked Steve what one word he would describe himself with, he would say he is, above everything else, "passionate."

In everything he does, he shows his passion and commitment.  He has worked with the youth of Gardner, coaching for the Gardner Parks & Recreation Soccer Club and volunteering for Nike Elementary's Parent-Teacher Organization, also serving as its past President.

In the professional and political arenas, Steve has founded and led consulting companies (SCSnet Solutions) and political action organizations (Hope for America Coalition). In his capacity as a Republican Party State Committee member and Precinct Committeeman, Steve has volunteered in successful candidacies of Bill Sutton (House District 43), Rob Olson (Senate 23), and John Rubin (House 18), as well as John Toplikar (Johnson County Commission).

Steve was born and raised in Florida, and went to college at North Central College in Naperville, IL, just outside of Chicago.  There, he met and married Kathy, his wife of nearly 22 years.  Steve and Kathy have four boys:  David (15), Patrick (11), Russell (9), Christopher (3), and Nathan (1).

Steve is used to fighting against the "establishment" mentality, and will be passionate about getting things done for the people of Gardner.  He understands that you have to look at things with an objective, critical eye, and filter biases and prejudices (while standing by your own principles) to come up with solutions that will benefit everyone.
