Kathleen Marie Konopik
Name one thing you would most like to do before you die:
Ban abortion in America and, thus, save the lives of countless unborn children who have no voice and therefore cannot defend themselves.
Personal Hero and Why:
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He chose to die an excruciating death and bear the full wrath of God so that the sins of man could be forgiven and we could once again be in fellowship with our Creator. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
Person Most Want to Meet (Dead or Alive):
Paul the Apostle
Ban abortion, protect biblical marriage (one man and one woman), defend and promote America's Judeo-Christian Heritage, strengthen our military, honor our veterans, respect our senior citizens, compassionately and rationally address illegal immigration reform, revitalize the economy, reform our failed public education system, promote common sense energy policies, stand with Israel against all enemies, eliminate our national debt, defund Planned Parenthood, ban pornography and prostitution within national borders, defend religious freedom and second amendment rights, reform our national taxation policy, and repeal Obamacare.
Reason for Seeking Public Office:
There are many reasons why I chose to seek public office. However, the root of my decision rests in my desire to serve the Triune God of the Bible, to work to heal the brokenness of America's families, and to restore California, and America, to greatness in all aspects.
