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?

Rape & Mother's life- prayerfully made decisions with doctor and clergy as an absolute last resort.


Economy

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

Neutral   

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?

As Governor Brian Kemp has done, require a budget reduction from all agencies which will require all agencies to evaluate practices and procedures.


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.

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?

One is free to practice their faith without interference from the government. Free exercise means you may have a faith and you may live it. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”. The church should not rule over the state, and the state cannot rule over the church.


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?

Yes. By encouraging more insurance options and companies, competition should bring costs down for consumers. Healthcare is needed by all because injuries and illness can happen any time. It is cheaper to do preventative care than try to deal with serious untreated medical problems.


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.

Agree   

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

Immigrants should be vetted with background checks and adults should have a marketable skill that they can find employment to support their families.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Neutral   


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.

Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian. I am saved through the Atonement of Christ's blood. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I believe that all of God's children are important and should have an opportunity for baptism. I believe in the Ten Commandments given to Moses and the higher law Christ taught of loving God with all our heart, might and mind and loving our neighbors as ourselves. I believe that parents will stand accountable for teaching their children the Gospel. I believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all.
