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?

The power belongs to the people not the government.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I always try to do the right thing. I always strive to do my best in everything that I do. It is important to me that at the end of the day I can look in to mirror and know that I have not compromised my values.

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.

My record of serving on the Altoona School Board will show Conservative values.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Reduce business taxes and eliminate many of the job killing regulations in Pennsylvania. Make this a business friendly state that businesses want to locate in. This will create jobs and reduce unemployment.

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

I would promote some of the ideas that President Trump when he ran for President. Make health insurance available across state lines. Allow groups to create group health insurance for their members, therefore paying group rates and not individual rates. Work to create jobs with benefits.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government needs to get out of the way. We need less regulations. We need less government. This will enable the economy to grow.

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

I am in my 7th year of serving on the Altoona School Board. I believe I have the experience needed to serve as State Representative of the 79th district. I had to fight to get our district to display our National Motto on our board room wall. I am currently fighting to stop the building of an $88,000,000. school that we can't afford and this area does not want. I am not afraid to take on the establishment and special interest groups. I know how to stand my ground. I have a proven track record of standing up for the Taxpayer.
