Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Tax payers dollars should be spent carefully and properly without waste.  I am not beholden to any special interests.  Candidates should not receive contributions from companies and other organizations that will be considered by that individual if elected. Polilcy decisions should be based on what is right for individuals and society and not according to who donates to a campaign. The highest ethical values should be applied in all dealings.
