Why are you running for office?
Baltimore needs a choice; the City has been locked down under democratic rule for over 50+ years and we are no better for it. We all understand the problems but we differ on how to implement solutions. Taxes and oppression is not the answer – make a different choice and you will see a different outcome.
Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
Thomas Paine – Common Sense
What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
1984 – How not to do government.
What will be your top priority in the General Assembly?
To stop legislation that impedes our personal freedoms guaranteed under the US Constitution and the Maryland Constitution. Reform.
What is the biggest issue facing your district?
What are the three biggest issues facing Maryland?
Taxation – Common Core – Immigration
What is your position on life issues? (abortion, assisted suicide)
Thou Shall Not Murder – 100% Pro Life
What is your position on taxes and spending?
Stop the spending and don’t raise taxes. We need hold the City agencies responsible for audits and where they are spending the citizens money.
What is your position on gun rights?
A well-armed citizen is the best defense against crime. Yes, that means I am PRO Second Amendment.
What is your position on education?
Let the schools teach students how to learn, not memorize. The curriculum should be determined on a local level not mandated from the federal level.
What is your position on the legalization of marijuana?
I personally believe that it needs to be legalized.
What is your position on the current three-tiered system for the sale and distribution of alcohol?
This system impedes small business craft brewers and distilleries.
Legislators can receive $101 per day for lodging and $47 per day for meals during the 90-day General Assembly session. If elected, do you plan to accept these benefits? Why or why not?
Any monetary compensation received should be a part of my salary and transparent to the constituents and taxpayers.
There is a culture of depravity and sexual harassment prevalent in the Maryland General Assembly. As a legislator, how will you work to end this culture of depravity and to ensure that those who commit these acts are removed from the General Assembly?
If there is impropriety, it needs to be immediately addressed and made public by all means available. Then the incident needs taken to the next level for prosecution.
