Questionnaire

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?

It would be a fine line to draw, considering the testimony of so many as in the case of Tim Tebow. At the discretion of the Mother if her life was in imminent danger. Tim Tebow and his Mother are still here with us.


Economy

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

Agree

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

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

We have a need to re-create safe and suitable environments for manufacturers and business to return, form and grow in our communities throughout Louisiana.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Lower taxes; Eliminate those who pay double taxes on district/parish lines; Eliminate inspections stickers or expand the duration; Increase tax credits to any benefactor who contributes to areas of great needs, such as education reform; Drug test beneficiaries of State assistance; Develop Trade Training Centers for Public, Private and Home School students.


Religious Liberty

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.

Strongly Disagree

Governments should 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.

Agree

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

I think it is necessary for us to look at the Medical costs and marginalize what they can charge based on the visit. I would also deem it unlawful to invoice an insurance company a higher premium than than an individual with no insurance. We can base insurance premiums, health care facilities and practices, and visits based on income.


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 the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

State and federal funds should be denied to any public or private entity, including but not limited to sanctuary cities, that are not in compliance with immigration laws.

Strongly Agree


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Neutral


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

The LGBTQ+ political agenda poses a threat to First Amendment freedoms of speech, expression and religious exercise.

Strongly Agree

I support expanding protections in employment and accommodations based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

Strongly Disagree

If children are given instruction in sex education in public schools, it should not express a preference for abstinence but should be comprehensive, offering discussions on various types of sexual orientations and behaviors plus all types of contraceptives.

Strongly Disagree

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

To limit power to one form of Government; to protect all people.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, walked upon this earth to teach us how we must live, died and rose again to redeem us from sin and that we may live an eternity with Him. The Word of God is Truth, the expressed nature of God, and is the compass by which we should walk our path of life. After the ascension of Jesus, The Father sent The Holy Spirit that we might have the power to live and be guided to fulfill our divine purpose according to His righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." We cannot remove God's Word as the compass by which we lead this great Nation, lest we be rightly detoured from moral justice and be divided by the day's opinion. If we remove the Word of God then we remove the scales by which we balance Justice.


Qualifications

I voted in these elections:

2012 Primary, 2012 General Election, 2014 General Election, 2016 Primary, 2016 General Election, 2018 Primary, 2018 General Election

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 believe that we are a better America when following the Constitution. The Constitution was structured from the Word of God by 55 Men who prayed and made a unified decision, considering the overall well-being of all people and the ability to protect those rights for all generations.

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

I have 32 years of Leadership roles including; 16 years in Property and Casualty Insurance Management and Team Development, including all office functions; 16 years of Leadership in Ministry and Church Leadership, Teaching, Training, Delegation, Counseling and Discipling. My husband and I are business owners and are team players. I naturally think along the lines of how to rightfully Govern. I am not detoured from my convictions and will continue to be transparent with actions within the legislature and government. I am the voice of the people.

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

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

I am married to my best friend of 22 years. We have 6 adult children and are the proud grandparents of 6 gorgeous grandchildren and another due to arrive soon! For my family, friends and neighbors, I will use every resource available to structure our laws to protect our fundamental, constitutional, and religious rights that we were built upon. The following generations are not going to know the good values that we were raised upon unless we have Legislatures who live not to defend alone, but to structure laws to protect against radical groups who want to infiltrate our government through laws and education. I am ready for the office and want you behind me to get if done. It takes team work to make the dream work. God bless you and God bless America!
