Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian. I believe in the golden rule, and the limits placed by the Ten Commandments. I believe everyday our actions and words are our prayer to the Lord, and an example to all. I think one should help others when ever possible, and never count the costs of sacrifice or suffering.

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.

My positions in debate, public conversations, personal exchanges, op-ends etc, always reflect an understanding of the intent of our founding. I attend mass weekly. I live a basic debt free lifestyle. My current debt can be directly attributed to business expenses. I do not use credit cards. I pay my bills in advance. I support and promote, tax reform, pension reform and limited govt.

Additional comment from candidate:

I believe strongly in a citizen govt. I think our public servants should treat their constituents as the primary focus of service. I believe an official on the state level, should be available often, have an office that promotes discussions and debates, and problem solving most importantly. I think this should be a full time position that reflects the result of actual work locally and in Harrisburg. More work needs to be done. Less talk needs to be the norm. I am a man of action, that solves issues, not discusses them. We need more doers in Harrisburg, we have enough of those who do nothing. I am currently a laborer for my own business. I work on call for other businesses. I have years of management, supervisory and customer service experience. I've worked for SSA, USPS, UC, AT&T, CTCO, RCN. IVE sold insurance, won several unemployment appeals for myself and others. I won a WC appeal and insurance appeal. I've negotiated contracts for work, worked small business etc.
