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 and life of the mother


Economy

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

Disagree   

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Social Security has been a problem my entire life and never gets fixed. Private accounts should be an option for younger people.

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

I’d start by reducing the amount of money going to other countries and the UN. We also need to stop all the pork being added into bills.

Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?

None. When someone chooses higher education, they choose to work to pay for it or take on debt. That’s their responsibility.


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   

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?

Separation of church and state means the state can not control the church.


Healthcare

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

Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Disagree   

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

Get the government out of it. I believe we need to cut mandates and regulations to make it affordable again.


National Security

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

Agree   

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

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   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

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   

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Agree   

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

Anyone wanting to immigrate should have no criminal past, be able to support themselves and should assimilate.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree

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

Conservative   

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

(Did not answer)

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?

I feel I am uniquely qualified for public office as a wife, mother and gun store owner. My husband and I have been married for 25 years and I understand how important strong marriages are for our country. We raised two children who, like us, have Tourette Syndrome. I understand the challenges of living with a neurological disorder and navigating the Healthcare and school system to get the best care and accommodations for my kids. Being a business owner in a highly regulated industry I understand the burden government can put on businesses. I feel it’s time to cut some of the red tape so more people are encouraged to start their own business.


Criminal Justice

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

Agree   


2nd Amendment

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

None, Gun owners should not be punished for other people’s crimes.


Other Important Issues

I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Neutral   

Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.

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?

Heating Protection Act Term Limits Mental Health Infrastructure

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

No. If people would turn off their TV and talk to their neighbors, I think they’d see we are all getting along. Americans, in general are good people and we welcome diversity which is why so many want to come here.
