Having lived in Enterprise since he was four years old, he has deep roots and is deeply invested in our culture, community, and our unique way of life.
Working in the timber industry, farming and ranching in Wallowa County all his life, his experience with natural resources comes first-hand. It has driven his passion for advocacy at every level from county, regional, state, and federal, to ensure our government does not get in the way of families and natural resource leaders from earning their living, their way.
Todd currently serves as a Wallowa County Commissioner and as the President of the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association. In addition, he has been active with the Association of Oregon Counties as Co-Chair of the Natural Resource Committee and on the Public Lands Committee at National Association of Counties. He is also the immediate past Co-Chair of the Wallowa County 4/H FFA Fair livestock Sale where he served for 15 years.
His work in the community has been acknowledged often. He has been the recipient of the Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce Award for Entrepreneur of The Year Award, Wallowa County Cattlemen of the Year Award and Honorary Cattlemen of The Year, the American Forest Resource Council’s Tillicum Award and many other state and local awards.
Todd has been very active with the state legislature going back to 2010 helping to shape many state policies within farming, timber, ranching and natural resource issues. He has also worked with Oregon Department of Agriculture and is currently a State Weed Board Member.
When they aren’t working on their ranch or helping friends with livestock, Todd and his wife Angie of 33 years, enjoy spending time with their four kids and six grandkids, all of whom live in Wallowa County, going fishing, hunting, riding horses, or just hanging out by the campfire together.
