Answer from John Wayne Tucker:

I have an extensive academic background holding a B.A. and MAT. I taught American History and Government. Also, I have been a minister since 1967. I have had extensive experience in many other areas including administrator of a private technical school,and office manager.

Answer from Greg Zotta:

I am over 25, a U.S. citizen and live in the district I am running for. I am a retired policeman and have been a business owner. My decisions are based on common sense, facts and fairness.I stand up for what is right and just.

2. What plans do you have to address your top three priorities? (50 word limit)

Answer from Greg Zotta:

Our problems are due to lack of funding. Iraq wants us to provide security so they need to pay for it. The borders need to be secure and I would increase the guards. Propose an energy plan that makes sense and is in the best interest of this country.

Answer from John Wayne Tucker:

As a minister, life is a non-negotiable item with me.

The rights of citizens guaranteed by the Bill of Rights are what makes this country free.

The United States has been spending more than we have for a long time. We cannot just continue to print and spend money.
