Beyond the 13 survey questions we asked each candidate on our voter guides, each candidate who answered the survey was given the opportunity, if they so chose, to respond to the following five essay questions in 300 words or less. On this page are the specific candidate’s answers. If a candidate answered some, but not all, of the questions, each unanswered question is marked as “No answer was provided.”
Explain your view of state government’s role in relation to economic growth and/or job creation.
Real Simple: The less government, the more growth and new jobs will be created. Government cannot create jobs. Leave the marketplace alone and let it thrive on its own.
What particular regulations of abortion would you support or oppose and why?
The same strict regulations any health clinic must abide by for sure:
- waiting time
- no late-term abortions
Do you believe parent(s) or government have the primary and ultimate responsibility for the education of children? Please provide at least one example that you believe demonstrates what you mean.
Parents have and must continue to have primary and ultimate responsibility for children’s education. More and more, government is trying to take control of our kids by longer days, longer school, less summers, and earlier registration—less family time. I do not support Pre-K—these are children who need to be home with their parents. Numerous studies have proven that earlier in school does not indicate a higher intelligence. Little ones are not ready for hours of control setting. They still need their mothers. Until we repeal and remove Common Core, there is no parental choice!
What is one of the most satisfying things you have ever accomplished and what made it so satisfying to you?
Writing music that brought folks closer to Christ and getting testimonials of how God used it.
What personal qualities or experiences do you think will define the nature of your service, if elected, and why do you think they are important?
Honesty, integrity, and truly caring for the district in which I represent. Helping and serving my district brings me great job in making District 40 a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
