Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe every effort should be made to protect unborn life in every circumstance with due consideration to the health of the mother and child in life threatening situations.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has a livable income.

Disagree

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

Socialism provides a robust foundation for a stable economy.

Strongly Disagree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

The best way to bring unemployment down is through a thriving economy. We need to ensure our schools and universities are providing the education necessary for 21st century jobs and encourage the private sector to invest and hire in our local communities.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should support policies that enable and help the free market thrive. It can do this by making sure adequate education and training programs are provided by our public schools and higher institutions, encouraging the private sector to invest in our local communities, and not over regulate to name a few.


Religious Liberty

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

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Agree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly 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?

We need to work create an environment where everyone has adequate income to purchase health insurance. Right now the income of individuals is not keeping pace with the increased costs of healthcare. To do this we must work to boost the economy so that the earnings of everyday people rise and work with healthcare providers to reduce costs and provide patients a fair rate for medical services.


National Security

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

I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree


Values

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

Strongly Agree

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

Disagree

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Strongly Disagree

Free speech is under attack on public university and college campuses.

Strongly Agree

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Strongly Agree

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

I believe the founders realized that man possesses an equal capacity for good and evil and that the power of the government over its people should be separate and limited to provide the greatest possibility for good men and women to succeed in service to this country.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian Conservative Republican, that order. I have accepted Jesus Christ as my lord and savior. I am a firm believer that faith informs our values and should be respected by our government.


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.

I have been a conservative all my life. I believe in the principles of a limited government that is balanced through the separation of powers. I believe that wasteful use of the taxpayers money should be eliminated. I believe that everyone should endeavor to work and be productive, but that we must also remember our duties as Christians to help those less fortunate.

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

I have over a decade of legal experience. I am duly licensed attorney in the State of Mississippi. I am a small town attorney and help people every day with a variety of legal, moral or ethical issues and want to bring my counsel to the legislature. I have always been interested in public service and have studied the law and government all my life. I hold a Juris Doctor from Ole Miss Law School and a Bachelor's of Arts in Political Science from the University of Southern Mississippi. I am also very involved in my community and volunteer for the Poplarville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Poplarville Athletic Association as their board attorney and coach Dixie Youth Baseball.
