Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Conservative

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

My personal belief is that there is a lot of value in tradition. You can generally lead a good life and be good to others with christian values. The Federal Government needs to be smaller and only control international issues. The State and Local governments should be making most of the decisions.

Additional comment from candidate:

My goal is to represent the people of Huron and Lorain county. To work with local leadership in the acquisition of new business. Ultimately win or lose the election I hope that I can inspire others that may be on the fence about running. We need change at every level of government if not me then hopefully someone see my campaign and says they can do that.
