Governor Scott appointed me to the 1st Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission. Governor Scott seeks and appoints humble, conservative commissioners who believe in the limited roles our judges should play in the overarching system of justice in Florida.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Government should lower barriers to entry for employers, increase economic opportunity through infrastructure improvements and provide efficient and targeted workforce training in desired industries.

Targeted expansion of services for medical professionals in medically under-served areas would be a good start in making sure medical care is provided to those who need it.

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

My personal beliefs are founded in my upbringing and personal Christian faith. When it comes to governance and public policy, I will always seek advice, and I am humble enough to listen to opposing views. I believe our Founders developed a system that allows for civil discourse in order to share ideas and reach critical decisions. I believe that the best policy is developed after thoughtful civil discourse.
