Why are you running for office?
“Conservative” Republican Central Committee
Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
Our late Wayne Norman Jr. , He had the gift to be direct as well as diplomatic on issues.
What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
Ayan Rands “Atlas Shrugged” as it has very focused principles that fit into the conservative principles of the Republican values. We need to stay focused on the problems and proper resolution rather than emotional responses.
What do you see as the role of the Central Committee?
I look to help guide the local republicans back into a conservative role. With recent county executive seat given to Alan McCarthy and the first thing he does is tax and spend and plans to spend more too. He ran as a Republican even though he had donated to the O’malley Campaign. Cecil County is infiltrated with Democrats registered as Republicans. Their actions show they are not truly Republicans.
What is the biggest issue facing your county Republican Party?
Cecil County is infiltrated with Democrats registered as Republicans. The Schools and other government employees play a big part in supporting the fake Republican movement in Cecil County to continue to bolster their funding.
What are the three biggest issues facing the Maryland Republican Party?
1: Making sure we have true republicans within the party. Maryland is also infiltrated with some more liberal Republicans.
2: Communicating across county lines for team building and assistance on campaigns that may need assistance to WIN those more liberal counties. They more likely will have less participation.
3: Winning the hearts and minds of moderate liberals and bring more fiscal responsible democrats to compromise and vote for conservative democrats rather than communists. We should not focus on government regulated social issues but rather fiscal issues. More will agree on these points.
What is your position on life issues? (abortion, assisted suicide)
Government should not be intruding on these issues and left up to the individual. Murder is murder and should be prosecuted and medical procedures are done under the guidance of a doctor. Prosecute doctors for murder if done in a way that is not medically necessary. We need to stop making it an issue and regulate the medical malpractice.
What is your position on taxes and spending?
While taxes are necessary in some cases, we spend far too much on things that are outside the realm of government. We need to reduce these things that the free markets should be doing. Libraries should not be renting movies and vidoe games. They should be cataloging real publications or online resources in that same realm. Schools should not be sport training facilities or a baby sitting services… I could go on but I think you get the point!
What is your position on gun rights?
We have the 2nd amendment – Uninfringed means uninfringed! Based on the constitution even a criminal has a right to a gun. It is our duty to either put the criminal in prison for public safety or put the person to death but not take thier gun rights away. Same with a mentally ill person, we either institutionalize the person or let them have the same rights as other Americans. In the wild west we shot the foes and went to court if wrong doing was done.
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?
