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.

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.
It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I believe Jesus Christ died for my sins and that through him I will receive eternal life. The grace of God is amazing and a gift we'll never truly comprehend. Marriage is a sacrament created by God for the union of one man and one woman to foster any children they might conceive. Marriage is the foundation of the family and States, understanding families to be the basic unit of society, assumed a role of regulating marriage. Ironically, the state's impetus for regulating marriage, is now exactly what they are deconstructing, to the moral demise of our country. Government's overreach into our communities with entitlements, programs and services, has created a disconnect and divide among citizens and perpetuates an even greater role for Government to play. Community organizations and churches - NOT government - will be the ones to take care of our most vulnerable, not the government.
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.
Please review my voting record; it speaks for itself.
What is the best way to bring down unemployment?
Ween people off of entitlements. There are too many employers seeking employees for there to be any significant unemployment statistics. If people want, and are willing, to work, there jobs!
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
Allow health care providers the ability to practice to the full scope of their license. Create a true free market for insurance that is able to offers products and services anywhere in the country. Rein in unreasonable and burdensome regulations. All government has done with healthcare is to create protected healthcare and insurance monopolies; making it next to impossible for doctors to practice independently.
What role should government play in boosting the economy?
GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!!! Government is NOT the answer. PA's tax structure for business is ridiculous at almost 10% in corporate taxes. The regulatory gauntlet businesses must navigate is almost impossible and hurts small businesses most. Further the ever-increasing licensing of professions does little to nothing in terms of public safety or consumer protection and create far more damage than any positive returns.
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
Government is of the people and by the people, that is what our framers intended, so anyone with basic criteria can serve. I have a bachelors degree in government and politics. I worked with a firm providing public relations services that required the establishment of relationships with local government officials throughout the Commonwealth, which provided an expansive view of challenges and issues in PA. I served as the chief of staff to and former state representative for 8 years. I owned and operated a consulting firm that provided public relations and grass roots strategy services for trade associations and campaigns throughout PA. Last, I've have been, and continue to be, very active in my community, serving many different roles.
