I love Wisconsin!
I was born in New London and raised in Hortonville. My family owned a small business called Cuff's Market and Greenhouse. Working here all of my life taught me the value of a hard day's work. I also learned about the challenges faced by those in a small business. I graduated from Hortonville High School, attended UW Fox Valley, and then transferred to UW Eau Claire where I earned a bachelor's degree in business. I married Lisa Tillema Cuff, and now we have 2 wonderful daughters. I worked for Kimberly Clark for 30 years and have recently retired allowing me to focus on becoming a representative for the people of the 56th district.
During my 30 years with Kimberly Clark, we had the opportunity to live in 3 other states. They all had positive features, but when our first daughter was 3 we decided to move back to Wisconsin because of the great public schools and beautiful public parks. Many of the decisions made by our representatives in recent years have put both our schools and our environment at risk. I will work together with stakeholders on these issues and develop solutions that meet the needs of all our citizens, not just a small group of special interests. I will represent the interests of those in the 56th district, and my decisions will help all of the citizens of our great state.
