Why are you running for office?
To fight for the people living in the 4th District and our Country, especially advocating for school choice which gives parents the power to make educational choices for their children.
How do you plan to win?
Partisanship has been tearing Washington and the country apart since the Obama administration, I plan to focus on issues that bring us together like school choice.
Who do you consider your political role model, and why?
Abraham Lincoln because poverty did not limit the vision of his future. Defying all odds, with hard work and dedication Lincoln rose to become President of the United states.
What is your favorite book about politics and policy, and why?
DEMOCRACY: STORIES FROM THE LONG ROAD TO FREEDOM BY CONDOLEEZZA RICE because its an engaging look at the global struggle for democracy and why America must continue to support the cause of human freedom around the world.
What will be your top priority in Congress?
School Choice to empower parents to choose their child’s school regardless of family income or where they live.
What is the biggest issue facing your district?
Poverty, that is why I plan to push for more funding for School Choice. Majority of immigrants that come to the United States are aware that education will lift you out of poverty. Quality education at a young age is critical to a child’s financial future.
What are the three biggest issues facing our country?
Immigration, partisanship, and Federal debt
What is your position on life issues? (abortion, assisted suicide)
I am pro-life. I believe in protecting life both in the mother’s womb and outside of the womb. I do not support abortion unless the baby is a threat to the life of the mother.
What is your position on taxes, spending and the federal deficit?
I support cutting taxes to spur economic growth but we must also stop Washington from harming economic growth that is created through wasteful spending.
What is your position on gun rights?
I support the Second Amendment and believe that people have the right to bear arms unless they are a danger to themselves or society.
The United States does not have a monopoly on mental illness but we do have a monopoly on people who have mental illness that have access to guns. I will support legislation that would expand mental health treatment.
What is your position on the legalization of marijuana?
Marijuana is a gateway drug to harder drugs and legalization would only exasperate the current opioid crisis. That said, I would not support legalization of marijuana.
What is your position on trade?
I support trade deals that protect Americans. We must reject trade agreements that do not protect American jobs, economy, exports and allows respective trading partners to not play by the rules.
What is your position on foreign policy and military issues?
I strongly believe in “Peace through Strength” and the world needs the United States to not lead from behind.
What is your position on the impeachment of President Trump?
Both articles of impeachment do not rise to the level of a crime needed for impeachment. 1. Abuse of Power for pressuring Ukraine: The Constitution gives the President wide latitude to conduct foreign policy and an individual running for office should not be an excuse to give them immunity from investigation.
2. Obstruction of Congress: When two branches of government disagree then it is up to the courts to decide on the disagreement. The House did not wish to have this disagreement sent to the courts because of the length of time the process could take but this issue could have easily been resolved by the House. The House could have requested a motion for expedited hearing or an emergency motion.
Would you support the passage of the Human Life Amendment?
Would you support the passage of the Balanced Budget Amendment?
