Questionnaire

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Strongly Agree

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Agree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has a livable income.

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

The state constitution should limit the growth of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Strongly Agree

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Strongly Agree

I support using a party caucus to nominate my party's candidate for Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, and I pledge to vote for my party's nominee.

Yes

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2010 Republican Primary, 2012 General Election, 2012 Republican Primary, 2014 General Election, 2014 Republican Primary, 2016 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

It shouldn't.

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

I believe they were escaping a totalitarian-like English government and in order to establish a free country, they had the foresight to delineate the federal government's powers. They, and I, believe that certain rights are established by God and man should not have the right to infringe on those, especially without due process.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that God is the only supreme being and that he sent his Son as an example to all and to serve as a sacrifice for all of us sinners. God has also provided us with his Spirit to be a helper and guide. I value love, benevolence, kindness, faith, hope, and the fact that God calls us to live out these values to the very best of our abilities.

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 am unaware of any information that is publicly available that validates my level of conservatism.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Hire more people and make unemployment "benefits" less beneficial.

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

I would work toward getting government out of the way.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government should simply get out of the way.

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

I have a total of approximately 16 years of public service as a law enforcement officer and a city manager.
