Why are you running for office?
To represent the citizens of the 36th district. I have a strong background in Agriculture and Seafood along with being a small business owner, and as a result, I have a unique and strong voice for Eastern Shore issues.

Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
Ronald Reagan because he was a strong leader but fair

What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
Can’t say that I have a favorite, but I have gained knowledge form several publications.

What will be your top priority in the General Assembly?
To be a strong advocate for Eastern Shore values and oppose any tax increases.

What is the biggest issue facing your district?
Opioids, healthcare and tax free Delaware

What are the three biggest issues facing Maryland?
Opioids, Healthcare and Jobs

What is your position on life issues? (abortion, assisted suicide)
I am pro life and I am opposed to assisted suicide.

What is your position on taxes and spending?
I am opposed to any tax increases and unnecessary spending.

What is your position on gun rights?
I am pro 2nd amendment

What is your position on education?
I oppose Federal and State overreach into our local school systems. Instead, I am a strong supporter for allowing local communities to set the standards for their school system.

What is your position on the legalization of marijuana?
I am opposed to the legalization of recreational marijuana

What is your position on the current three-tiered system for the sale and distribution of alcohol?
The current 3 tiered system works for the most part but as the mico brewers increase, some tweeking will be necessary.

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?
Yes. I am in my office in the House of Delegates at 8:00 AM every morning during session and rarely get back to my hotel room before 9:00PM in the evening. My drive home is about 90 minuetes each way so it is wise to stay in Annapolis.

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?
I have been a cosponsor of legislation directed at this issue and will continue to be a vote to hold offenders accountable.
