Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree   

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

None


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.

Strongly Disagree   

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree   

What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?

As it pertains to state government, I would reduce welfare spending and the Texas Enterprise Fund. I would continue to look for additional opportunities to reduce or eliminate unnecessary spending or waste of all taxpayer dollars.


Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree   

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Strongly Agree   

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

Yes   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

Government should not have or be sponsor of a recognized national religion/church.


Healthcare

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

I would vote on all related issues (within my purview) to remove all government regulations that impede/restrict free market competition.


National Security

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree   


Immigration

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Strongly Agree   

State and federal funds should be denied to any public or private entity, including but not limited to sanctuary cities, that are not in compliance with immigration laws.

Strongly Agree   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

Law abiding individuals who meet specific requirements related to their ability to be self sustaining and self supporting and not become a dependent of current tax paying US citizens. Diversity/country of origin should not be considered as criteria for admission to the USA.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

Strongly Disagree   

Promotion of the LGBT agenda in public schools, including teaching of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”, is completely inappropriate and should be opposed at the state and local level.

Strongly Agree   

I support allowing public high school students to participate in athletic competition based on the gender with which they identify instead of biological sex.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Bible-believing, born-again Christian who believes in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.


Qualifications

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative   

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

Support of lowering property tax rates, a non-binding resolution against Planned Parenthood and backing/support of first responders while serving on Bedford City Council, 2006-09.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I am a principled citizen with strong conservative values which I applied in practice while serving on Bedford City Council and throughout my business career in the private sector.

Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.

No

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I am committed to limited government and conservative values that will make Texas more free and prosperous than it has ever been before.


Judicial Philosophy

I support the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Strongly Disagree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?

Restrictions on the 2nd Amendment make people less safe, not more safe. No additional restrictions are needed. We should pass Constitutional Carry now.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

1. Constitutional Carry 2. Eliminate Legislator Pensions 3. Reduce/Transition from Property Tax to Consumption type tax base

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

No. Racism is dying on it's own and is only kept alive by those in government/politics who use the race topic to fabricate/promote hate for self promotion and/or gain.
