Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe if you have any goodness in you, then you have the moral obligation to do what is right. My faith has guided me all my life. I grew up with only one parent at home and mainly raised myself when I was a child. Going to church, being an alter boy at St Michaels, and growing up receiving confirmation. Helped keep me balanced and poised as a father and now as I run for office.

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

Very Conservative

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

I operate conservatively in my business and at home. We moved to a 750 sq ft home with a family of 5 so we can make sure we can live in a meek manor. If my business has a bad month we need to be able to survive. This has only made us grow stronger as a family. My wife and I stayed in the dinning room so our children could have bedrooms. We did this for almost two years until we could build a bedroom in the garage.
