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

I am a Patriot, not a Politician. We must return to our Founding Fathers view that public service is not a profession. We have lost sight of the spirit and intent of Servant Leadership. The establishment does not provide a level playing field. We must stand up for our Republic. We have taken God out of our lives at the expense of Political Correctness. We need to return to Core Values not common core. Give a combat veteran a chance to lead, someone that has laid their life on the line in defense of Liberty.
