Pro Freedom of Religion: Freedom of religion is just how it sounds – the freedom for you and me to choose our faith. Not agreeing with another individual’s faith does not give you the right to interfere with their religious practices. I believe we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father who wants all of us to love and care for each other as brothers and sisters. A little love goes a long way.
Liberty: Individual Americans do not need the government to make decisions on their behalf. I believe in a limited government, which is just as important at the local level as it is nationally. Individuals and businesses have become overburdened with unnecessary regulations and statutes. I will strive to create more liberties for individuals and businesses by loosening regulations.
Pro Family: There are organizations in our country (and locally) that want to undermine the traditional nuclear family. This is dangerous to the very fabric that holds our communities and nation together. Just like freedom of religion, it is unfair to try to dismantle another’s beliefs. If you do not believe in traditional values, please don’t try to undermine another’s desire to build a family.
Pro Police: I will never support a reduction in public safety resources for political and social justice reasons. Period!
Economy: I am a capitalist. I abhor socialism and Marxism. No economic system is perfect, but capitalism encourages and rewards individual entrepreneurialism, which is the backbone of the American dream. Southern Utah, with Tech-Ridge, Dixie Tech, and DSU, is a perfect recipe for ideas, inventions, and discovery.
