What I Believe.

"Public service is a high calling; one that I take seriously and approach with humility and a tenacity that garners respect from constituents and colleagues.”

I believe in and want to live in a country that upholds your right to freedom of speech and religious beliefs, not one that says only certain views are acceptable in the public square, and shames, bullies, and cancels those who disagree.

I want to return to an America where we can say we are better off financially now than a year ago; rather than an America that insists we return to more taxes, regulations, and mandates on both individuals and businesses.

I believe in law enforcement. Americans want to feel safe in their communities. We want to live in a country that honors and respects our law enforcement officers; not a country that calls for defunding the police and permits lawlessness and chaos in our neighborhoods.

I believe in school choice, where parents are free to choose where their children are educated; at home, in Charter schools, Private schools, or government schools. I believe in a system that empowers and welcomes the voice of parents in what their children are being taught.

I believe in healthcare freedom. Citizens must be free to choose what we put in our bodies, without threat of job loss and intimidation. More broadly, I support a healthcare system where we have more choices at better prices rather than the government making more and more decisions about what coverage you can have, what doctor you can see, and what your plan will cost.

I believe in the rule of law. Americans want jurists that will interpret the laws as written rather than ones that make laws from the bench. There is a big difference.

I believe in secure borders. We must have a country where we control our own borders and where those seeking to come here obey our laws. Open borders give us little say about who comes and who goes, rewarding those who jump the line, and also providing easy entry for those seeking to do us harm.

I believe in economic and energy independence. America should be self-reliant in producing consumer goods, medical supplies, and critical resources such as oil and natural gas. Being beholden to regimes like China, Russia, and Saudi Arabia threaten our security and our economic health as a nation.

I believe Americans want leaders who uphold our national values on the world stage and not leaders that sells them out to garner approval from international elites at the United Nations or the World Health Organization.

Finally, I believe in a country where we honor our founding and our history while learning from our past; not one where monuments are defaced and destroyed and history books are rewritten.
