What prior involvement have you had in the Republican Party or Conservative organizations?
Other than voting republican, I have never been involved in any groups or committees.

I strongly feel that it need to be squashed!
What is your position on abortion?
I am strongly Pro-Life, I feel abortion should be illegal and doctors performing abortions should be put in jail.
What is your position on the 2nd Amendment?
I strongly feel it is our right to bear arms and that should never be taken away from us as Americans.
What is your position on public sector unions?
I do feel the unions can be a good thing; however it does protect the wrong people. Public sector unions statistically have a bad reputation but I do feel that with some organization it can beneficial to local municipalities.

State/County/Local Issues

What are the two biggest issues you feel Macomb County is facing today?
The transition over to a executive form of government and like everywhere else, employment.
Do you think Macomb County should have casinos?
I do have mixed feelings on this issue because it could be a great source of money for the county but I also could see it destroying the county at the same time.
What is your position on the Ambassador bridge project?
I feel it would help relieve the congestion as well as create many jobs for people in our communities.
What is your position on special millages like the DIA or Zoo millages?
I feel it’s a good thing because it preserves the arts for the young children in our communities.
