Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

My faith in Christ is central to my values and principles. I believe in God's sovereignty and under no circumstances should abortion be undertaken.

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

The self-centered nature of mankind caused America's Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution. This approach of limitation of powers creates checks and balances to ensure no arm of the government encroaches on another.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I was raised in a traditional Christian home and had the privilege to be exposed to Biblical values. However, not until I was 15 years old attending a youth camp, did I realize my need for a relationship with Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord. This major decision defines my spiritual belief and value systems.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I am a firm believer that the power of governance belong to the people; hence there should always be input and community engagement in the political process especially where tax dollars are involved. To represent well, a consistent dialogue is essential and necessary. My top priority for this office is community engagement in district 11,holding quarterly community forums across Parker, North, South & West Tarrant and far northwest Dallas counties to hear from all stakeholders. These community input become guidepost for collaboration and decision-making.
