1. Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and is the key to national prosperity.


2. Government should enforce laws designed to protect the border and to prevent illegal entry of persons into the country.


3. Because evolution is widely accepted, students should not be taught about intelligent design.


4. Free market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

Strongly Disagree

5. It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health care and a livable income.

No Answer

7. Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

9. Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

No Answer

10. Pure democracy is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.

Strongly Agree

11. Who has the primary responsibility to be sure children are properly educated?

I believe in a strong public education system.

12. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

Health of the mother, rape and incest.

13. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers within the Constitution?

Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

14. Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

I would like to use this spact to answer #5. It is the government's responsibility to provide every citizen with the opportunity to earn a living wage and obtain healthcare. Not a handout- an opportunity to earn these things.

15. Please list, up to six in number, the endorsements (groups or individuals) you would most like to promote.

I would like to use this space to answer #6. Photo ID, no. Proof of citizenship for first-time voter registration I would support provided it was universally applied. The young, the elderly, the urban population, and the poor often do not have photo ID if they don't drive.

16. Please list your educational, military and vocational history, and any church and civic leadership positions held, and political positions held or sought.

I have a BS in Finance from LaSalle University, a JD from the National Law Center at George Washington University, and a Masters in Educational Leadership from Seton Hall University. After college I owned and operated a small advertising business for 6 years. Then I worked as an attorney for 10 years before becoming a HS math teacher. This is my 12th year teaching. I have been a volunteer coach for 20 years, and founded the Green Bay Fall Baseball League. I acted as the commissioner of that league for its first 3 years, from 2009-2011. I am a candidate for Assembly in District 88.

17. What charitable, educational, religious, or political organizations have you been affiliated with as a member, contributor, or volunteer?

I am a member of St. Bernard's church, WEAC, and the Democratic Party of Brown County.
