Why are you running for office?
Because the Ha. Co. Council gave themselves an 18% raise and only gave County Employees a 3% raise after 10 long years of no raises
Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
Donald Trump because he tells it like it is and backs it up…..
What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
Don’t have one
What will be your top priority in elected to this position?
To tell the people what is actually going on in our Government…
What is the biggest issue facing your county?
Building and buying….We literally can’t move through our once rural area and they are buying buildings and land for 2 and 3 times more than it appraises for
What is your position on taxes and spending?
I don’t mind paying taxes but the spending is way out of control
What is your position on a county tax cap?
I honestly don’t know enough about the County Finances to answer this correctly
What is your position on land use issues?
We buy High and sell Low….Most of the land deals in Harford County are kept secret….I got that directly from a current County Councilman…..He told me,,,,they don’t want us to know..
What is your position on public safety?
As a retired Trooper and a Volunteer Fire Fighter,,,,,,pretty much anything that will keep us safe…..However,,,our County Executive just bought two ambulances and wants to start a County Ambulance Service……He has NO CLUE….
