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   

If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade, North Carolina should repeal its law allowing abortion up to 20 weeks of pregnancy.


Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Health of the mother


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

No Answer   

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

Strongly Agree   

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.


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

That it should be separate.


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

No Answer   

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

I have INITIATED the Clear Pricing PROJECT (CPP) WITHIN THE NC STATE HEALTH PLAN to get rid of secret healthcare contracts on behalf of those that teach, protect and otherwise serve. Push the power to them; they know HOW to consume in the other 80% of their lives

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, sheriff and local law enforcement agencies should be required to participate in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) 287(g) Program to enhance the safety and security of their communities to identify and detain aliens.

Strongly Agree   

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

Those that follow the laws of the land


Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.



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.

No Answer   

I support allowing public high school students to participate in athletic competition based on the gender with which they identify instead of biological sex.

Strongly Disagree   

Parents should have the right to know what schools are teaching their children about sex and LGBT issues and should have the right to opt their children out of any instruction to which they object.

Strongly Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am not a perfect person. I believe EGO stands for Edging GOD Out. I wantGOD to be happy with me Jesus is the center my joy. I believe GOD made everyone POSSIBLY better AT something than anyone in the world--not better THAN! The individual has to search for what that is. I believe in the Lord's Prayer-even as difficult as it sometimes is.


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?


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

The root word of conSERVAtive is to conserve-get more out of less. The root word of LIBERal is to liberate- set free. I have spent every minute of my 23 year public service career focused on saving lives, minds and money. Go to and or Google search.

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

I have a track record of attacking problems;NOT people. Over the last 15 years , I have saved billions for those that teach, protect and otherwise serve and taxpayers like them.

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


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

On question 5 and 6 it should be worded that individuals should have access to the "joy of achievement " and upward mobility. On question 16, I am AGAINST discrimination on any level ,PERIOD! As State Treasurer, we don't pick and chose which laws to apply or who to apply them to. We skip to work everyday knowing that we are in the check delivery business. We do that in a fair and just way. I am not on my way to some other elected office; just to be the best State Treasurer in NC history.

Judicial Philosophy

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

Strongly Disagree   

2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?


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

I support the 2nd amendment

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?

I will continue LOYALTY to those that teach, protect and otherwise serve.NOT to Wall Street,big healthcare or drug companies. As "keeper of the public purse", I will continue watching the pennies and the paperclips. I will work to preserve,strengthen and sustain the pension/healthcare for the next generation of public service workers.
