Questionnaire

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

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.

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.

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

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Ectopic (tubal) only. This is a self-defense issue. Without the surgery, both the mother and child will die.

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

Mankind's sinful nature and natural lust for power.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am adult baptised by submersion and a Bible-believing born again Christian. My values are mainstream traditional Christian conservative.

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.

Read The Becker Report at www.BeckerGOP.com. My voting record is also verifiable at www.OhioHouse.gov.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Reduce the burdens of government including regulations, spending, and taxes to free the private sector to thrive.

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

Government should concentrate on lowering costs. Have one central location in every county for indigents to get whatever care they need. All of the personnel would have immunity from malpractice litigation. The staff would be mostly volunteers, interns, and students. Regardless of location, any provider performing indigent care (charity) would get immunity from malpractice litigation. This would be a win-win. Everybody would continue to get the care that they need. And hospital emergency rooms would no longer provide non-emergency treatment to non-paying customers.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Get out of the way. Government is a resistance to economic growth.

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

I'm in my sixth year as a State Representative. I have 30 years private sector experience. My education includes an MBA with an emphasis in Taxation, Certified Treasury Professional (CTP), school district treasurer's license, and a graduate of the Union Township Citizens' Police Academy.
