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

I can foresee no reason for an abortion other than a rare condition like an ectopic pregnancy where a mother’s life is endangered.
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
Throughout all of history, mankind’s pride and ambition have created a propensity for the few to gather power and hold sway over the many. This tendency was anticipated by the Founders and held in check by the separation of powers in our Constitution.

Government best serves the economy when it positions itself as a minimal actor in the public square. By keeping regulation and taxation to a minimum, government best serves the economy.
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
I believe we are the sum of our life experiences. I grew up in rural Hardee County and became a registered nurse. In the 90s, when my father became ill, I took over running my family’s business. Today, I serve as administrator of the same rural hospital I was a candy striper in as a teen, and I work daily in my family’s citrus and cattle operations. All of that has led me to where I am and my ongoing passion to serve others.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?
I decided to step into the public square after years trying to run a business and running headlong into bureaucracy. When we talk about the role of government, I saw firsthand that when it’s too big to care, it’s too big to be effective. Regulation and taxation can break a business and an economy. So it’s the school of hard knocks that prepares me for this role and a chance to do better for those government should serve.
