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.

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2012 General Election, 2012 Republican Primary, 2014 General Election, 2014 Republican Primary, 2016 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?


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

In order to ensure we the people are represented, and not under the rule of a tyrannical monarch.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in protecting religious freedom.

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’m a co sponsor of the heart beat bill, Constitutional carry, and a supporter of right to work. Every vote of mine has been conservative.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Low taxes and less regulations. Empower private employers. Pass right to work. Stop expensive healthcare mandates.

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

Create an environment where jobs are created and people can get healthcare through their employer.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Low taxes and less regulations.

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

While I have a bachelor’s degree, I reject the premise of your question that education is needed to be elected. Many with an associates degrees or skilled trade certificate are extremely qualified to hold elected office and would likely be more adept to being a conservative elected official.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you: 937-838-6517

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

I did not answer the gay marriage question because I believe it is a church role to define marriage! Not the government. Marriage is between one man and one woman.
