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.

Strongly Agree

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.

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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Under no circumstances. All human life is a precious gift of God.

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

They were guided by prayer and their belief that too much power in the hands of one branch of government is detrimental to the well being of a democratic society.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I'm a devout Roman catholic. I attend Sunday Mass with my family. And I enjoy and benefit from reading Holy Scripture I feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in my daily life. My goal is to bring my family and friends to recognize Jesus Christ as their way to eternal life in heaven.

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?

Very Conservative

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

My conservative beliefs were a product of being raised by loving conservative parents. They brought me up in the Catholic faith. Since Roe vs Wade in 1972, I have been politically active in changing that Supreme Court decision. All human life is a gift of God.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Government taxes too much and also spends too much. We are starting to see the economic benefit of less taxes and spending. We can't tax ourselves into prosperity.

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

The free market is the best solution for better healthcare. Obamacare is a disaster.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The best role for the government to stay out the way of Free Enterprise. The government should only have a limited role in enforcing regulations for our safety.

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

Adjunct Professor of Communications at the University of Central Florida and Valencia College. Government Affairs board member at the Titusville Chamber of Commerce. Small business owner. Over 25 years of community service in Orange and Brevard counties.

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