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.


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

Strongly Disagree

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.

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.


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.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Strongly Disagree

The state constitution should limit the growth of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.


Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Strongly Disagree

I support sanctuary cities.

I support the death penalty.


Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Life of the mother only

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

Our drive for greed of power and money

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am an evangelical Christian believing all people need a spiritual change based on Christ's sacrifice for their sin.

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?


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

I have always supported conservative candidates with my votes, campaign contributions, and time. I crossed party lines to vote for Bob Casey Sr. over Barbara Hafer because of her Pro Abortion stand and his Pro Life stand.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Growth in the private economy. That is best achieved by creating a lower tax, less regulated business climate. Less welfare and and graduated path to financial independance for people on welfare. A much better educated under class. The schools are failing our less affluent kids.

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

A free and more competative insurance network. Tort reform to cut costs of malpractice insurance. I do believe in the individual mandate because people who are uninsured who get in a wreck or otherwise go to the emergency room will be treated and it costs more that way.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Create a better business arena with less taxes, less regulation and better government.

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

A degree in economics, experience in controlling budgets of Moon Twp, my business, the builders associatioin, and churches. As a small businessman, I know all to well how burdensome regulations hurt business.

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

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

I am very hardworking, loyal and trustworthy.
