Integrity – I am firmly grounded in the principles of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage. No accomplishment is worth the cost of my Integrity.
Government Accountability – My first priority is government accountability and ensuring access to you the taxpayers. I believe the best policies are driven by facts and good data, not divorced from compassion, but not driven by emotion. I will focus on solutions that solve problems rather than unwise or unproductive solutions in the name of “doing someing.” I promise to never forget that each tax dollar comes from an individual taxpayer, with house payments, car repairs, doctor bills, and many other demands on their budget. I will never forget that each vote I make affects individual citizens and families.
Accessibility – My assignment, if elected, would be to be your Representative, and to do that job well, I am committed to being proactive in reaching out and listening to you. I will conduct more open forums and townhalls where taxpayers’ voices will be heard. I will work to engage citizens and be as accessible through townhalls, social media, email, by phone, and any other available option.
Educating Our Children – I will focus on improving our educational programs to deliver relevant education that prepares our children to face the ever evolving and competitive economy. We also need a more rigorous and practical civic component focused on critical role of Representative Democracy and Founding Principles. The current challenges we face have stretched us into innovation in education that now gives us an opportunity to evaluate in more depth how online and/or remote learning can be used to improve the education our students receive.
Second Amendment – I believe the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees a fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms for all law-abiding Americans, and that state and local governments should not be allowed to circumvent this God given right. I do not want government at any level determining what “competency” with a firearm means, not do I believe they should have the ability to change that definition depending on current public sentiment.
Responsible Development – I will focus on expanding our prosperity while maintaining our unique way of life. These decisions are best made at the local level with state statute as a support.
