Personal Hero and Why:
My father was my hero. He was always there for me when I needed him. He set a great example. Like me, so many others, particularly his students and many who were students but not his students looked up to him. He was willing to stand alone if need be but he always stood up for the little guy.

Reason for Seeking Public Office:
First: I hate being told "If we do it for you, we'd have to do it for everyone. Then they get mad when I ask, so what's the problem with doing it for everyone." Second: I detest government regulations that limit and slow commerce and discourage business, particularly small business. Third: We have rules that discourage business competition and give unfair advantages to favored businesses over others. Finally, nothing is more frustrating having people in charge who don't know what they are doing.
