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 the Bible to be God's sovereign word. From the beginning in Genesis, God's word states "God created mankind in his own image." I believe a child of God is formed at conception. Each child is created and formed in the mother's womb. Each and every child was formed to the will and desire of our Heavenly Father. Under no circumstances should abortion be allowed.


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

Strongly 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 down unemployment is through private sector job creation. Creating a competitive marketplace for the most valuable asset of our economy, our human capital will drive unemployment down. Investing in our human capital through skills driven education and training will help to ensure a readily available workforce to meet the needs of industry.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

I believe the government can boost the economy through free capitalistic enterprises in a deregulated economy. The private sector should be the leader in job creation not the government. The government should provide an environment in which businesses can thrive and create employment opportunities.

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


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

Strongly Disagree

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

Competition in the market place.

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


Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.



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.


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?

The Founding Father's did not want the power to be in the hands of a few so there would not be a tyranny ruling the country. By designing a government and crafting the constitution in the manner in which our Founding Father's did they were protecting our civil liberties. Our civil liberties are protected through the three branches of government.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe the word of God to be authoritative for our lives and the values which we must follow as Christians. I believe he sent his son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for my sins and those of all mankind. He rose again to give us eternal life in Heaven through him. Through the perfect and sinless life of Jesus Christ and the work of his disciples we were given an example in the manner of how we should live our life here on earth to bring the lost to know our Savior.


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?


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

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

In the spring of 2018, I felt the Lord calling me into a life of service. I was leading an environmental pipeline company which I helped start from the ground up. I was not satisfied at any amount of success the business or myself was having professionally. I did not know where this calling into service would lead, but I continued to seek the Lord's will. It became clear running for the position of Northern District Transportation Commissioner was the first step. My entrepreneurial experience and positions of leadership in business have prepared me to lead and serve Mississippi. A pro-active business-minded approach is needed to bring our aging infrastructure system into the future. Without proper and quality access into the Northern District of Mississippi our area of the state will not continue to grow through private investment and job creation. I know Mississippi is where I am called to serve.
