This information is provided by the candidate
They [the poor] have to labor in the face of the majestic equality of the law, which forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.

Anatole France in Le Lys Rouge

I represent a new breed of Republican candidate for office

  • Leadership by action. Talk the talk and walk the walk.

  • No sinister private interest as I am not a political careerist seeking self-aggrandizement. Dedicated to create the best community for my family.

  • Will ensure that every voice in the 16th Congressional District is heard.

  • Fiscally responsible government with a higher standard of excellence and accountability. A community of awareness and tolerance and an appreciation for the creative opportunities that make the 16th Congressional District a success.

  • Advocate of change. It is time to look to the future while not ignoring the pain of the present.

  • 'Can-do' philosophy. See the glass half full not half empty. Make it happen!

  • Principled, but willing to listen and accept other points of view. Pragmatic but not at the expense of principle.

  • Compassionate, caring, and understanding. Sympathy and empathy for other people's misfortunes.

  • Non-judgmental and tolerant of other's differences. No one should be outcast from his/her own community. Every human being is valuable, regardless of circumstance, identity or status.

  • Concern for civic responsibility, accountability and equal rights for all.

  • Free choice. It is not Government's business to tell people how they ought to live behind their closed doors.
  • No more wars except for self-defense.

  • Bring US military forces back to the United States.

  • End unfettered regulation.

  • Not a shrinking violet. Willing and able to stand for the interests and well being of our district against anyone.
