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?

It is not up to me to say THIS is when a life should be aborted. Everyone must make their own decision. For me, I choose life.


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?

That would depend on where the money is currently going, what can be cut without hurting people. There is not a cut dried answer.


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 making sure a religion is not chosen over government. Religion is not Christianity. Christianity is a value system that offers a morale compass.


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?

Healthcare originated after WWII as an incentive to hire the best possible employees. As it should still be. We should step up and take the personal responsibility to take care of ourselves and families then neighbors and friends as we are able. Saying this I really like the health savings plans. Invest in your own healthcare payment system. Any incentives along this line that help build personal responsibility are worth promoting!


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?

Immigration reform is needed to allow people who want to become AMERICANS to become Americans. Welcome those who will embrace what our core values are and the system of government that sets people on a path toward personal and social freedoms.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Agree   


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 Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Bible based Christian who seeks an ongoing personal relationship with Jesus Christ that, as in any relationship, is stronger as I draw nearer.


Qualifications

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?

Conservative   

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

Look here for voting record: https://www.azleg.gov/

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

Masters in business and public administration. Business and political background.

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?

There is a difference in being political and working in politics. We have to have a certain political prowess without becoming a politician. My goal is to work for the people in an open way, help resolve issues citizens face without creating a lot of law to do so. There is so much that can be accomplished behind the scenes---a place where agendas and values are revealed.


Judicial Philosophy

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

Strongly Agree   


Criminal Justice

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

Disagree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

Motor vehicles are a very large, fast, dangerous piece of metal that can blow-up and kill people. People who drive cars are required to understand how to drive that car, the risks, and who have a certain level or knowledge to take the responsibility for driving safe. Gun owners should be responsible that they understand safety measures and use them.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Agree   

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?

> Stabilizing rural economies. > Open education system, less government controlled, more affordable higher education. > Strengthen the root system of the state, nation, and community. Children and families.

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

Racism is a threat to the basic character of a human. It threatens the love of a family, the fiber of a community, the unity of a state, and the nation that houses them. We all are created equal for specific purpose wherever we are. There is no excuses for racism!
