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 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

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Stop paying able bodied people to draw a check while sitting at home. We offer so many job placement programs, and education that we should not have the amount of unemployment that we have. The work force development board of SWLA does an amazing job, and are always looking for people to help.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government gives incentives with tax credits that boost economy.

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


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

Strongly Disagree

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

I would need to do a lot more research.

National Security

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

Strongly Agree


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


Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree


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

No Answer

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?

Human nature is created or transformed by product of environment. My best analogy would be the reason we are a Republic, because of the electoral college. Our founders knew the result of mob run, so they limited the power.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Jesus Christ is my lord and savior.


I voted in these elections:

2014 Primary, 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 think we need strong barriers of entry. I believe that we have a process that everyone should have to follow.

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

I think my years in business and me serving as a Calcasieu Parish Police Jury has qualified me for the office I seek. I have one class left to have an AS in Business Management, but me having hands on experience has helped me relate to the issues my constituents have and will have if elected. No school education can truly teach you people, and that is what government is about is people.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you: 337-884-8662

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

Truth and honestly is what I believe in, I will tell you the truth even if I know you will not like it. This world is in a trying time and it is only getting worst. Please do your due diligence on anyone you vote for, do not be sold by soft spoken words and promises, actions always speak louder than words.

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

I support the death penalty.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

2nd Amendment

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

Other Important Issues
