Kirk was born and raised in the Salt Lake City valley of Utah. Married Jill 33 years ago and we have three children and 3 grandchildren. I have run my own construction business since 1985,building custom homes and small commercial projects. After seeing the amount of taxes I had to pay for all my employees I became frustrated and was taught by my CPA about the Constitution. I got involved in the Republican party in hopes to help get us back on track. After 16 years as a Republican delegate, I left and joined the Constitution Party in 2002. I have run for US Congress, Utah State Governor, State House, and State Senate several times. I have served as County Chairman, State Chairman, Vice Chairman, and now as Western States Co-Chairman.
