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.

Strongly Agree

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

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

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.

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.

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

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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

None.

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

America's founders had lived under a monarchy without representation of the people. Religious liberty and representative government were foundational to the revolution.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian saved by Grace. My value system is deeply rooted in my faith in Jesus Christ.

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 served on the Sachse City Council and helped implement E-Verify, ensuring all of our employees were in the country legally. I also helped implement conservative budget reforms like zero-based budgeting and pushed to have all city board meetings begin with a prayer and pledges of allegiance. Other public information includes endorsements by conservative groups like Texas Right to Life, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Young Conservatives of Texas, Texas Home School Coalition, Texas Values Action and AQ ratings by both the NRA and Texas State Rifle Association.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Lower regulations and lower taxes expand economic freedom for all.

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

Expanding health insurance for all is not the role of government.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government should stay out of the way to boost the economy. Lower regulations and lower taxes will expand the economy.

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

I hold a BS degree in Political Science from Texas A&M University. As for experience, I am the only candidate in the race who has held public office. I have served on meaningful city boards like the Planning & Zoning Commission and Economic Development Corporation and served on the City Council in Sachse, Texas. My last year on Council I served as Mayor Pro Tem and on the Executive Board of the regional North Central Texas Council of Governments. I have also served in the Republican Party as a Precinct Chair, three times, and as a delegate to the State Convention of the Republican Party of Texas, three times. I am ready, willing and able to serve in the Texas House.

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

I am passionate about bringing conservative reforms to property taxes, ending in-state tuition for illegal immigrants, ending funding for sanctuary cities, fighting for Constitutional Carry and the lives of unborn. I have a history of advocating for and implementing conservative reforms and I'd be honored to have the opportunity to do that again, this time in the Texas House.
