Reason for Seeking Public Office:
Thank you for visiting our online campaign headquarters. I am running for Congress to represent our traditional Missouri Values in Washington. Congressman Hulshof has been a blessing for our district, a good friend and mentor to me. I congratulate him on his decision to run for Governor.
Folks, you do not need anyone to tell you that Washington under the Democrats is broken. As a Medical Doctor, it has been my life's calling to help people that are sick. I took that training with me to the Missouri state legislature and helped pass and sponsored laws that help people. Together we have strengthened consent laws, made it illegal to coerce a woman into having an abortion, given law enforcement the tools they need to combat illegal immigration and outlawed sanctuary cities in Missouri.
I want to take my record of proven results for Missouri and my life experience as a family man, a Doctor, a small businessman and a state legislator to Washington and tackle the major issues of the day.
I will make you this promise right now. I will always oppose amnesty for illegal aliens, fight for the rights of the unborn, and not only keep the tax burden as low as possible on Missouri families, but vote against out of control spending.
I hope in the days that follow we get the chance to meet and that on August 5th, 2008, and again on November 4th, 2008, I am given the distinction of serving you as our representative in Washington. This Doctor has a Prescription for Change for Washington; will you help me deliver it?
