Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Per federal law.

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

The founders envisioned the knowledge and reasoning that would be essential to our participative form of government.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

They are profoundly personal.

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?

Moderate

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

There isn't a correlation between fiscal and social conservatism... questions framed in this way make it difficult to complete this survey. e.g. my social views are moderate while my fiscal views are quite conservative.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Grow the economy through and through, and improve educational outcomes for children living in poverty and extreme poverty.

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

I would have accepted the Medicaid expansion. Making health care more affordable should be job #1 for Congress.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

I am an Adam Smith Republican. A healthy, growing economy can only be based on fair and and open markets. State government in WI needs to be promoting all of the sectors of our wonderful economy.

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

WI needs the next Governor to have the understanding of industry necessary to be able to lead the economy in the way it is poised to grow. This is the only way we will be able to invest in education and our physical infrastructure again. I have 30 years of business development experience in multiple industries including manufacturing and software.
