Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

It should never be allowed. I believe God is the Creator of life, and it is not our place to decide when it begins or ends.

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

The Founders knew and understood human depravity, that absolute power corrupts absolutely, and that there must be checks and balances in place to reign in our sinful nature.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born again Christian, and I believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I was ranked the 8th most conservative State Representative by an independent Rice University study. https://www.tribtalk.org/2017/06/09/the-2017-texas-house-from-left-to-right/ Received A+ ratings from organizations like Texans for Fiscal Responsibility and Texas Right to Life, and have been endorsed by conservative organizations from across the state: Texans for Fiscal Responsibility Texas Right to Life Texas Home School Coalition Texas Values Action Texas State Rifle Association Texans for Toll Free Highways West Texans for Life I was a founding member of the Texas Freedom Caucus, a group of 12 of the most conservative legislators in the state who fought for faith, freedom, and family throughout the course of session.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Fostering a strong economy, and reducing the influence and control of government regulation.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

More competition, more choices for coverage, and less regulation. The government needs to be kept out of healthcare.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Any economic growth is created by the private sector, not government. The best way to boost the economy is to get government out of the way, and reduce regulatory and tax burdens.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I have owned and operated Biedermann's ACE Hardware for over 30 years, and my wife and I are active community members. Because of the success of my business, I have been able to serve as a full time representative for Gillespie, Kendall, and Comal counties. My first session as your State Representative was very effective, and we fought hard to protect our conservative values. It was an honor to serve you.
