Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

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?

Conservative

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

No Answer.

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

Healthcare has taken a wrong turn in our country. The ACA has wreaked havoc on our healthcare system. The dramatic leap towards single payer healthcare when the ACA was adopted caused a drag on the free market. If congress would have enacted better legislation to help curb increasing healthcare costs the country would not be in the dire circumstances it is in now with the ACA slowly collapsing in on itself. Congress should not be reactionary, but should be leading the way to a better and more inclusive healthcare system.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government should stay out of the way of the free market. Lowering taxes should be the number one priority. The federal reserve should not use its heavy hand to artificially control the economy.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

The tax code should not be used to carve out specific businesses or expenses to give unfair advantage to one business over the other. A simpler tax code should be implemented so most Americans could fill out and file their tax forms in minutes, not hours or days.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

The best way to bring down unemployment is to get out of the way of the free market. Less regulation and lower taxes are a start.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Since future generations are living longer and healthier lives, the age at which the Social Security benefits are started should be raised. For those who won't be receiving benefits for at least 20 years or more, the age limit should be adjusted up slightly by one or two years, giving ample time to plan for the additional time needed for retirement. I am also in favor of a portion of Social Security being privatized so the individual has more control over their own retirement. I would like to see legislation passed that would restrict the ability of congress to borrow from Social Security to pay for other programs, and then to repay what has been borrowed.

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

I have 30 years of experience in owning my own small successful business. I have been an elected official for the Sultan City Council for nine years and have served on county and regional boards as a representative for all the cities within Snohomish County.
