What is the best way to bring down unemployment?
I believe that the desire to work is inherent in people and that the government should not inhibit. All able bodied people should work and government entitlements should be given only to those who are unable to work. The government should reduce corporate taxes and regulations on businesses in order to increase the available jobs. Therefore, combining the desire, the ability and the environment to work, unemployment will decrease.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
What role should government play in boosting the economy?
The economy is boosted by the flow of money. Government can reduce regulations so that constraints are loosened on businesses. Government can reduce corporate taxes so that more money is available for company growth and more jobs. When there are more jobs, more money flows into the community.
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I am a Pennsylvania State Registered Professional Engineer and FEMA certified in Emergency Management.

I am a problem solver. I know the efforts required in legislating solutions. I was a major contributor to eight education bills, with two being signed into law, significantly changing the status quo.
