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.
