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.

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.

Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe in pro life


Economy

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

Neutral   

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

Agree   

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree   

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

Each township will be responsible to pay for their residents only not anyone else. No tax funding for abortions at all. Priortized local and small business owners needs and understand what we can do more for them. Give priority to tax payers rather than illegal immigrants.


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.

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.

Agree   

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

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?

Legislatures should not make any law for it. People have their own choices to make.People have freedom to choose whom they wants to worship. Church doesn't govern the peoples affairs as they do not elect the officials.


Healthcare

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

Agree   

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

Local, State and Fedearl government should be involved in a such way that the cost of hospitals, doctors etc becomes more affordable to all the tax payers of the nation. Let the free market regulate itself. Obamacare was introduced it made insurance rate increased like anything. Let us work together and make it more affordable to all our tax payers.


National Security

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

Neutral   


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.

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.

Agree   

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

As a immigrant myself I understand that how important it is to follow all the rules, regulation and laws of immigration. It is very imperative that we must follow immigration laws under all the circumstances. Everyone should be allowed to enter legally into our nation. We need to respect all the other tax payers equally. It is our responsibilities to protect our own borders.


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality that 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.

All human beings are equal for God. God has created this world for all of us to reside peacefully and fruitfully. Every one is born with equal rights. Person should be justified with his/her Karma and not based on race, religion, age, gender. ALL LIVES MATTER.


Qualifications

As foreign policy is systhesis of ends and meets, let us concentrate more on our core values,national security and economic prosperity.We want to achieve common goal for our country and help other countries to grow with us. But at the same time, we want to be very well fully aware of how other nations are taking advantages of our own legal and immigrant system. We build this country on immigrants by applying legal systems and laws. We want all to come legally in this country and keep track of legal immigrants. We are very well known for helping other nations all the time. We need to respect our own tax payers and their hard earned money. We are here to help everyone legally.

My accounting degree and years of professional experiences as Chief Financial Officer will benefit to calcualte cost vs benefits more adequately in general. I own and operate small Real Estate Brokerage firm past ten years. I have put the most difficult transactions together including few land developing projects. These infrastructures brought and still bringinng more jobs to NJ residents. My proven track record in private sector will be very useful for public sector.

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

My more than ten years financial and accounting background will be very helpful to balance the budgets and spending powers. Currently I own and operate small Real Estate Brokerage firm for past several years. My developing projects have created jobs for New Jersey on a continous basis. It has created so much property taxes for the townships, utility accounts.As a Real Estate broker I intimately understands the property tax crisis that we all face. I will work to reform it. My finance and development background, I will be able to form the strong foundation that will help NJ residents and I will be very effective to advocate for everyone. As a parent, I understands the difficult demands of college tution fee and challenges that our current and future generation are facing and going to face. We will work together to overcome with it.
