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?

If, and only if the mother is in imminent danger of dying. I do not believe it should be used as a form of birth control. Just because the woman does not want a child. There are plenty of families that can't have children and are willing to adopt.


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.


Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.


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

Stop NJ from being a sanctuary state and giving money freely to continue the sanctuary

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.


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.

No Answer   

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.


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?

Whatever your faith the gov't shall not interfere. Free to live and show your faith.


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


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

Most Americans do not mind their tax dollars being used in helping with healthcare. They do mind and are not happy with tax dollars being used on individuals who are not citizens for healthcare. My goal would be to stop however I possible in legislation for providing healthcare to American citizens only

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.


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

No one. They must get citizenship. There has to accountability. Our great great grandmothers and grandfathers came through Ellis Island. The country knew who was coming in


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


I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.


Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I have been raised Catholic. I may not attend church regularly but, I do believe in God and Jesus Christ. I am still very faithful. I believe when one closes another opens. God will provide


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.

None provided.

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

I am a law abiding citizen. Pro 2nd amendment. Anti abortion and I love America! My beliefs and the beliefs of most of my constituents are the same. This country. I am retired FF/EMT after 27 years of providing EMS healthcare on the streets. I have seen individuals with no healthcare and individuals with all the the healthcare provided. I don't have any political education but, I know this country was on the right path 4 years ago.

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?

I will do my best in the legislation and the state of NJ has to have some checks and balances. Too many years of one party rule

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

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

Strongly Agree   

2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

No Answer   

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

None. Gun safety and handling courses are the best method.

Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.


The Electoral College should be abolished.


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

In the 3rd district I feel sales tax should be reduced. Delaware is close and eating, shopping can all be done in a no sales tax state. We must keep shopping in Salem county and the 3rd district. The reducing of gas tax to at least half will also keep shopping here. Delawareans for years used to come across the bridge to NJ for gas because it was cheaper. Hence they would probably eat at a restraunt or shop. Eliminating NJ as a sanctuary state

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

Yes. Because these groups not being stopped and the groups continue with their spreading of hate and racism.
