I am a lifelong Republican and a conservative thinker who believes in the ideals of limited government and the ever-present need to constrain government to its proper roles.
I believe strongly in the importance of ensuring the freedoms of self-determination.
I believe in the critical importance of maintaining a free market economy and while I am not so extreme as to believe in the elimination of all government regulation, I am skeptical of its agendas and resist its expansion.
I believe that our children must be prepared to meet the challenges of the world they are growing into and that we have a duty to provide the means by which they will be prepared.
I believe that an elected official must seek to understand the needs their constituency, be available to hear and respond to their concerns and provide leadership on the difficult issues we face.
If you will support me in this election I commit to you that I will hold fast to these values as your Senator for District 9.
