VALUES: I hold dear traditional American values of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," the birthright of we citizens of the oldest constitutional democracy and greatest democratic republic in the world, a Republic that seeks to provide the opportunity of each individual to realize his or her full potential and do so via free enterprise in an free, open society.
TAXES: Abide by the New Hampshire Advantage , no new broad-based taxes and seek to lower or not increase those taxes already on the books. I truly believe in Less Spending means Less Taxes.
GOVERNMENT: That government is best that is closest to the people. So, let us reduce the size and scope of state government and shift power and money from the state to the local level. I will oppose any unfunded mandates coming down to us from higher levels of government.
LOCAL CONTROL: Increase it; first, in education schools work best when they are locally controlled and then in other areas as well. Let's have more home rule. My loyalty is to Auburn and Londonderry Residents.
REFORM: I will work for electoral and political reforms to (1) reduce the influence of lobbyists and (2) to ensure that each citizen's voice is heard and each vote counts. The Republican Party is a people-based party of change.
MARRIAGE: I support a state constitutional amendment that defines marriage as an institution binding one man and one woman. In my oppinion "Gay marriage" is not a civil rights issue. To define it as such is an insult, both to an institution that represents hundreds of thousands of years of tradition and to the civil right movement.
GUNS: I fully support our Second Amendment rights.
ABORTION: I am Pro-Life and fought to protect parental rights where the Democrats voted it down and feel you have no rights and big government knows better. We will be submitting legislation again to protect parental rights.
