I am Pro-Life. I respect and defend the sanctity of life. I firmly and unequivocally believe that life should be protected at every stage from conception to natural death.
Protect the Second Amendment
I am committed to the protect our Second Amendment. The right to bear arms is a constitutional right. We must enforce laws that keep firearms out of the hands of criminals, but, in doing so, we must not take away rights from law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.
Support our Military and Strengthen our National Defense
It is our honor and duty to support the brave men and women of the Armed Forces who protect and defend our freedom. I believe in “peace through strength.” The United States must maintain the strongest military in the world and provide our military with the necessary funding to be able to do their job safely with the best resources and equipment.
Support our Veterans
Our freedoms as Americans have been preserved and protected due to the sacrifice of our veterans and those currently serving in the military. As Americans, it is our duty and responsibility to provide these heroes with the best health care, treatments, and services for their needs.
Support our First Responders and Emergency Personnel
As a County Commissioner, I have been a leader in keeping our volunteer firefighters well trained and safe. We instituted a new 911 system for our country and have also assisted in the development and construction of a new training facility for first responders.
Stop Illegal Immigration and Enact Immigration Reform
I support President Trump’s Immigration Plan. I believe it is a national priority to secure our borders and enforce current immigration laws. Illegal immigration is a burden on law-abiding, tax paying American citizens, and an injustice to them as well. It is time we protect legal Americans before those entering our country illegally. It is imperative to support President Trump’s plan to secure our borders, which includes building a wall and increasing border patrol. We need to put an end to sanctuary cities and take funding away from those who do not enforce the federal law. Legal immigration is acceptable; illegal immigration is not.
Combat the Opioid Crisis
I am committed to addressing the opioid epidemic that is plaguing our nation. As a sitting County Commissioner, I have been working with our drug and alcohol professionals, police and first responders, and community groups that are in the trenches tackling this crisis everyday. This tragedy affects all classes of people. We must combat the flow of illegal drugs coming into our county, which further supports the need for securing our borders.
Eliminate Unfunded Mandates and Regulations
I am committed to reducing unfunded mandates and regulations, which burden our counties and local municipalities. As County Commissioner, I have seen how these mandates and regulations have burdened our local government. In order to fund these mandates and regulations, the cost always gets passed on to the taxpayers. This needs to be stopped and local government must have a voice.
