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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

As Assistant General Counsel for a national pro-life organization, I am on the front lines of promoting pro-life initiatives and ending abortion. While many candidates and politicians may talk about the pro-life movement, I am the only candidate in my race that acts on a daily basis to protect life in every situation.

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

After experiencing the oppression of a government that did not allow for self-governance and representation, the founders in their wise judgment invented a new novel form of government that looked to rightfully separate the powers and create checks between them to encourage not only competition but allow each branch to counter the other in certain circumstances.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a member of Watermark Community Church in Dallas, and my faith has a great impact on my daily life and decisions. From a young age, I have been a disciple of the Christian faith, which has directly impacted my political ideology and views of government and public service.

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?

Conservative

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

Please review my social media accounts and past experience to see for yourself my true political ideology.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

The best way to bring down unemployment is to promote education, especially in STEM subjects, and maintain conservative business policies that do not over-tax or over-burden businesses from small mom-and-pop storefronts to large corporations to encourage growth and hiring.

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

We need to employ free enterprise principles such as cross border purchasing and competition to keep cost from rising, but also promote preventative medicine practices within our society. In the U.S., we have some of the best hospitals and emergency response in the world, but our ability to promote healthy preventative choices such as routine physicals and healthy eating are severely behind other developed countries, which leads individuals to choose more expensive options when a health issue arises.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government should promote pro-business and conservative policies to help bolster business success, but remain a behind the scenes player rather than the sole entity driving day-to-day business development.

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

I received a Bachelor of Arts from Louisiana State University with a double major in Political Science and History. Thereafter, I attended and received a Juris Doctor from SMU Dedman School of Law, which I used to pass the Bar exam in Texas. With my education, I am now Assistant General Counsel to a national pro-life nonprofit organization that helps abortion determined women choose life affirming options for themselves and their unborn child.
