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?

I'm a pro-life supporter.


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?

Every budget has deals for special interests. I would review the budget and work hard to make sure that the special interests for pet projects are removed from the next budget. I am a business owner and I know that a strict and tight budget is necessary for any business and a government to run efficiently.


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.

Strongly Agree   

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

Strongly Agree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

Yes   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

To me it means that there's a separation between the government and its citizens when it comes to the church. The government and the church should function separately according to their respective roles.


Healthcare

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

Disagree   

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

Adequate health care coverage can be achieved by promoting competition among insurance companies and putting patients first. Forcing the insurance companies to compete with lower costs will result in consumer empowerment and higher-quality service for everyone.


National Security

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

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.

Disagree   

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

Our country is made up of a diverse group of individuals. Therefore, we should promote legal immigration of individuals that will contribute to our economy and the growth of our country.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree   


Values

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

Strongly Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I'm a Christian and believer in Jesus Christ.


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?

Very Conservative   

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

N/A

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

As an attorney for over a decade I'm constantly exposed to challenging situations where I have to provide solutions to difficult problems. In an adversarial system I'm exposed to issues where I have to find common ground in order to achieve the best outcome for my clients. It is that experience that I will take to the Senate seat along with my serving heart to achieve what's best for Gwinnett.

Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.

No.

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

A common theme in my life is my love to serve others, finding solutions to difficult issues, excelling as an advocate, and bringing people together. I'm an immigrant who came to this country legally to work hard and achieve the American dream. This country has given me numerous opportunities to work hard, serve others, give back to my community, and be a voice for the voiceless. I hope to take my conservative and Christian values to the State Senate and serve with a humble heart.


Judicial Philosophy

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

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Agree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?

I support the Second Amendment and do not support any restrictions on gun ownership.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

1. Health Care 2. Education 3. Elder protection

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

Racism is always a threat. A divided nation births fear, pain, and uncertainty. Therefore, everyone should be treated equal.
