Why are you running for office?
Republican Central Committee
Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
One of my many political role models is Dwight D Eisenhower. This great military leader served his country with honor and prestige. He valued pledging allegiance to the flag of this Nation and I share that value. This country needs religious principles to continue the successful tenure as the greatest nation on this Earth. I believe we need to get back to the roots of this party and follow the example set by great leaders such as President Eisenhower.
What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
A book I read and enjoyed was Sean Hannity’s: “Deliver Us From Evil”. This book explains the history of some of the worst world leaders of our time, and praises the efforts made by President Reagan, and President Bush for having morals and values that are symbiotic with us Conservatives.
What do you see as the role of the Central Committee?
The role of the Central Committee exists to provide a means and a way for Republicans to have their party represented properly. Working in conjunction with the State GOP to find Republican candidates that can win seats, support every Republican running for office, helping with campaigns, and having a presence at events to explain the values of the party are all some of the duties. Those on the Central Committee need to have the desire to actually serve and do it legally, morally, and in line with the needs of the party.
What is the biggest issue facing your county Republican Party?
Personalities over principles.
What are the three biggest issues facing the Maryland Republican Party?
The super majority of the Democrats in the Maryland General Assembly, Gerrymandering, and a select few members who do not support the state as a whole.
What is your position on life issues? (abortion, assisted suicide)
I do not believe abortion is good morally when an individual does not want to accept the responsibility to be a parent. I especially should not have to be taxed so these same people can get free abortions.
I do believe assisted suicide should be up to the person suffering. It is their life and if they would rather go in a peaceful way, then so be it.
I am against the government trying to regulate every little issue regarding the people of the area; we as moral citizens need to be responsible and held accountable for our actions.
What is your position on taxes and spending?
I do not support high taxes or useless spending. Things like healthcare, illegal immigration, and free higher education can all be provide for but not at the taxpayers expense. Governmental oversight needs an overhaul, especially on spending. Misuse of campaign funds needs to be cracked down upon.
Every elected official on every level should release their taxes during their tenure and I feel strongly that
What is your position on gun rights?
I support the constitutional right to bear arms, however the license to carry permits should only be given to individuals who prove that they can actually be responsible and adept with the firearm. Mandatory training and exams should be passed in order to conceal a weapon.
Do you believe that Maryland Republican Party primaries should be open to independent voters?
Do you believe that the state party and the county parties should be allowed to endorse in primary elections?
Do you believe that Maryland Republican Party auxiliary organizations should have a vote on the Maryland Republican Party executive committee?
Would you support limiting the terms of Maryland Republican Party officers to eight consecutive years in the same office?
