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.


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.


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.


Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Agree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree

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.


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


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."


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.

Strongly Agree

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.


I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2012 General Election, 2014 General Election, 2016 General Election

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Life of the mother in jeopardy and possibly rape/incest

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

No man can be permitted to become a god onto himself which is exactly what King George had become. By splitting the powers among the three branches, the states, and the people, our Founding Fathers recognized that power tends to attract and corrupt the corruptible and this permitted that to be diluted. Also, as was pointed out in the Federalist Papers, "if all men were angels no government would be necessary." Since we have realized that men are not angels while on Heaven we need limitations

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a firm believer in Jesus and Judeo-Christian Values. I was raised in a conservative Polish Catholic Family. My wife is from a conservative UMC family in which her father and uncle are pastors. Her grandfather is a Brethren Church Pastor.

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 feel free to review my Facebook Campaign page, my regular campaign page and also please listen to the interview below.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Lower the corporate tax rate a small amount in Pennsylvania. Local businesses are the best drivers of job growth and will reinvest in our local communities.

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

We need to get big medicine out of health care coverage. Having UPMC offer health plans while also being a health provider is the equivalent of buying your car insurance through Ford. It makes zero sense and simply creates a monopoly. Removing providers from coverage will drastically reduce rates, improve competition, and quality of service.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should be a safety net to ensure we never have another Great Depression however should otherwise be minimally involved.

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

As an attorney I read, write, and analyze the law everyday. As a former prosecutor of sexual assault cases, I uniquely have the ability to make a strong case out of little hard evidence. Further, in my current position I fight for citizens everyday against bigger and better funded groups. I have always been a voice for those who feel voiceless.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you: (814) 650-0769

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

I am going to put our common values first and work to make life in our district better each and everyday instead of worrying about re-election. I have pledged to run two terms and no more. I am a fighter and a winner!
