Additional comment from candidate:

If elected to represent House Dist 65 I will be guided by three closely held yet simple principles: -The Constitution is an instrument for the people to restrain Government not for the -Government to restrain the people. -That all men rare created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. -A commitment to transparency and openness - legislators and government officials should not hide behind the bureaucracy in rule making. God defines marriage - not Governments.
