Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

imminent death of mother

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

Acknowledgement of frailties of human 'rulers' that require internal controls on government such as pride, avarice, self interest and desire for power.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Anglican Christian. My relationship with God is the most important thing in my life.

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 have gone on record in various venues advocating for my conservative values including: banning sanctuary cities and honoring our veterans.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Cut regulation, as Pres. Trump has done.

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

Allow market principles to permit competition for services, as espoused by Pres. Trump

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Minimal regulation to permit free and fair competition.

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

I have a 'classical education', rare today. I am an attorney in private practice, and deal with the law every day. As a businessman, I am aware of government regulation. As an attorney, I studied the Constitution. I raised three children so am familiar with public education. I am a taxpayer and property owner.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you: 813-778-1202

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

I was inspired by President Trump to seek public office office as a challenge to the 'insiders' and the swamp. I will be a watch dog for the people not a 'lap dog' for the special interests. I will navigate through the swamp with my compass being my relationship with God. We are in a war for the heart and soul of America and I will stand up and fight back against the progressives. I'm reminded of the hymn "Stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the Cross". I am standing up. Vote "Mac"...I've got Pres. Trump and Gov. Desantis' back!
