Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
The Apostle's Creed captures the essence of my beliefs. I serve one God, whose son, Jesus Christ, suffered, died and rose from the dead for our sins. Salvation is a gift of grace offered to all people via the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, with salvation being found only in Jesus. Personal testimony When I was 15 years old, I was invited to a Protestant youth group and for the first time I heard the Gospel… that one is a lost sinner needing salvation as a free gift of God provided by Jesus Christ. I responded to the altar call, went forward, repented of sin and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
(1) Service - I have served you and this nation for more than 30 years, as a Colonel in the United States Army.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you:
Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?
I recently wrapped up more than 30 years of active duty as a Colonel in the US Army, serving along the Iron Curtain during the Cold War, seeing combat in Iraq, and after 9/11 I deployed three times to Afghanistan. It breaks my heart that after 30 years of sacrifice, I am passing the nation to my son less prosperous, less free and less good than how I received it from my father. Like so many of you, I am tired of being on the defensive… it's time to rise up and fight. Together… and with God’s help I believe that, "America’s greatest chapter is still to be written, for the best is yet to come" (Reagan) But, to achieve this… we must fight and just as I fought for you in Iraq and Afghanistan, I will fight for you in Washington DC…
