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   

I support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires health care providers to provide life-saving treatment for infants who survive an attempted abortion.

Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death. However, I also believe that preventing the death of the mother should be paramount.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure 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   

What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?

We are required under the Georgia State Constitution to pass a balanced budget and in Georgia we (proudly) do this. As your next State Senator, I will continue to balance the Georgia budget, trim the fat, and promote operations in the state at minimal costs. The federal government should take a page out of Georgia's book.


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 Agree   

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.

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

National Security

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

Strongly Agree   


Immigration

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   

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   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born again Christian. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God, died on the cross for our sins, rose again in three days, and ascended to heaven to be with God. I believe in the Trinity - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. I know that I am a sinner and that I fail in my walk of faith, but I also know that there is redemption, grace, forgiveness from God. Jesus walked this Earth and was kind, loving, and caring to ALL sinners, even those that whipped him, beat him, hung him on the cross, and killed him - he cried out for God to "Father forgive them for they know not what they do." Luke 23:34. In my walk in Christ, I try to express kindness, love, compassion, and grace to those who do not believe what I believe and to those who live in a way that I do not believe.
