Greed and power

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a conservative Christian. I believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God. I believe that Jesus Christ came to earth as a human. That He was crucified, died, was buried in a tomb, and was resurrected by God on the 3rd day. I believe that He ascended to heaven and that He is coming back to take His Church home and that He will be the Judge at the final judgment of all people.


Qualifications

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.

I am economically conservative. I believe that everyone including the government should only spend money they have, pay off all their debt, and be financially responsible. I am a social conservative. I believe that we should live by Biblical values. I believe we should stop giving money to other nations without payback. If they need help, let’s loan them money with security. I believe that everyone should have a path to citizenship using legal pathways. Build a wall and deport all who came here illegally.

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

I am a mature leader with a successful history in the Healthcare industry. I do not have a political education. I understand how to use the right resources when I don’t have the answers. I understand the value of listening.
