Other Information

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?

We should never kill babies.


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?

I would try to reduce government spending across the board.


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?

"Separation of church and state" is written nowhere in our founding documents. I think we need more of God and the Bible in the public square, not less of God. furthermore, people should be able to freely worship whichever God they so choose.


Healthcare

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?

Let the free market reign. Get government out of the decision-making between doctor and patient. Allow coverage across state lines. Encourage health savings accounts.


National Security

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

Strongly 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.

Strongly Agree   

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

Those who immigrate should only be those who are lawfully allowed to come to this country.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly 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.

Evangelical Christian. Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins and I follow Him daily.

My platform is to 1) Protect our guns 2) Protect life 3) Ban sanctuary cities 4) Protect our border 5) Take care of our veterans 6) SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP. I can't fight this fight alone and need your help. Will you stand with me and send me to the AZ State Senate to be an unabashed pro-America conservative? As a retired career Air Force pilot, I know what it's like to fight. I don't owe lobbyists or special interests ANYTHING. I will only work for you. I'm Wendy Rogers, and I ask for your vote.

Strongly Disagree   

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

We need to get the economy moving again and we need to secure our southern border from bringing crime & drugs and undermining our economy. I want to give the people’s money back as much as possible, which they’ve paid in taxes … every chance there is. And we should CUT spending BEFORE we ever raise taxes.

I don’t see color, I see American and help everyone I can.
