Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or business owners because of their deeply held religious beliefs.

Neutral

Governments should not penalize those who define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Agree


Healthcare

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

Disagree

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

Due to government mandated health care it has caused coverage to be manipulated. Free enterprise again is the driving force with competitive markets.

Agree

I support sanctuary cities.

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Biblical values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

Agree

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

No answer

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

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?

Conservative

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

Immigration must have a systematic set of rules. The system today is by far to restrictive in the manner that it takes to long to process and often requires several costly trips to a few induction centers. This is due to the typical federal process of setup. The issue that is more important now is the fact that we now have issues that have been allowed to grow through "Sanctuary Cities" and such we have allowed a dangerous growth of internal threat to our Republic.

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

I have worked in public service for almost 40 years. I have served as Director of Emergency Management before during and after Katrina. I have been in engineering construction type work for all my working career. I have many courses concerning homeland security as well as FEMA Public Assistance. I understand and have a great deal of knowledge of State, City, and County government as well as Federal law. I have designed and built roads, bridges, and buildings.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you:

loperforsenate@gmail.com

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

Friends, my whole working career has evolved around the service and safety of people and their property. In my older days I would like to use all the common sense and training that I have been afforded to gain to continue to help our citizens. We have to bring our children's education to a higher standard! There lies the future of our next leadership.


Criminal Justice

I support the death penalty.

Agree

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Agree


2nd Amendment

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree
