Why are you running for office?
After 4 decades of one Chief Prosecutor, the county needs and deserves someone with leadership and management experience. I am the only candidate with those skills and background.

Governor Hogan. He seems to be above politics and does what he thinks is right at all times.

What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
All John Grisham books.

What will be your top priority in elected to this position?
Reconnecting the State’s Attorney’s Office to the local law enforcement officers.

Drugs and violence.

What is your position on taxes and spending?
I don’t have one.

What is your position on a county tax cap?
I don’t have one.

What is your position on land use issues?
I don’t have one.

What is your position on public safety?
Our focus MUST be on attacking BOTH narcotics supply and demand. We cannot give up the fight to stop the dealers, but we must also fight the users and find ways to keep them from becoming addicted in the first place.
