PLATFORM AND ISSUES

I believe that the money should follow the student. At the parents' discretion, they should be able to direct the funds (with vouchers) allocated to that student to an alternative (non-public school) education, including private schools or homeschooling. Competition makes every business stronger, for the benefit of society. Making public schools compete for student dollars will make them improve the quality of public education.

I am vehemently opposed to a curriculum that teaches children their identity is defined by whether they are the "oppressed" or the "oppressor" and promotes racist principles, such as Critical Race Theory (CRT). Equality does not equal Equity. I recognize that public schools are adopting programs with labels like "Social Emotional Learning (SEL)", which have CRT ideology embedded within them, and calling them "good for students' emotional well-being". This kind of indoctrination does not belong in our schools.

Parents Rights & School Choice

I will draft and support legislation that will:

  • Allow parents of a student to determine whether the public schools are doing an adequate job of educating their child with a proper curriculum, or whether those schools are imposing unreasonable mandates on students (such as wearing masks or receiving injections).

  • Make it easier for charter schools to expand, will improve STEM training in all school curricula, and will increase the availability of trade schools in lieu of traditional colleges.

Election Integrity

I will draft and support legislation that will: 

  • Allow the de-certification of elections and withdrawal of electors to the Electoral College by the Legislature after their certification.

  • Call a Special Session of the Legislature if the Governor does not do so.

  • Require all counties in Arizona to release a list of all eligible voters one week (7 days) prior to each election.

  • Require all counties in Arizona to do the following within ten (10) days of any election to:

  1. Release publicly the "Cast Voter Record" which is a spreadsheet containing a representation of each ballot and all voter selections that were counted on that ballot.

  2. Release images of all ballots, numbered so that they can be quickly found on the Cast Vote Record.

  3. Release, on the day after an election, an online sortable list of who actually voted; including the name, address, and precinct of each voter.

  • Require each county in Arizona to tighten its voter rolls, by eliminating deceased voters and those who are no longer qualified to vote.

  • Implement smaller voter precincts, impose hand ballot-counting rather than machine counting of ballots, impose strong voter ID requirements, and close primary elections (requiring that voters registered with one party cannot vote in primaries for other parties).

Pro 2nd-Amendment

An avid supporter of the right to bear arms, I am a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA), Gun Owners of America (GOA), Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL), The Well-Armed Woman, and a voting member of the Arizona State Rifle and Pistol Association.

I believe, as The Founders did, that the only way for a Republic to protect itself from a tyrannical government is through the right to bear arms and defend themselves. I also strongly believe gun owners should be well versed in proper gun training and safety courses.

Border Security & Immigration

I recognize the urgency to strengthen our border and immigration policies in order to protect Arizonans and ensure their safety.

I will draft and support legislation authorizing funding of the Arizona Department of Public Safety to assist the Arizona National Guard with arrests of illegal aliens coming across the border and increase funding to complete the construction of the border wall within Arizona.

Constitutional Conservatism

I will forcefully advocate for policies that yield a smaller, less-intrusive state government, result in lower taxes, recognize the benefit of fossil fuels and focus school education on the basics – not ideologies.  

My initial legislative agenda includes: 

  • Prohibition of mandatory inoculations 

  • Prevent further property tax increases including water tax from private wells 

  • Utilize antitrust legislation on abusive mega-corporations  

 

I believe that the “can-do” American spirit can be revitalized with policies that reward hard work  with both opportunities and plentiful good paying jobs – policies that recognize private property  rights are fundamental and policies that hold a government accountable to honestly listen AND  respond to its citizens.

Support for Small Businesses

I favor unleashing the power of small business. Whether it is a sole proprietorship, small or mid-sized business, these entities provide employment and most of the goods and services we receive. Unfortunately, they have been saddled with officious over-zealous regulations,  reporting requirements and taxes. My legislative efforts will seek to energize rather than  demonize these incredible assets. I will listen, heed their concerns and target my efforts in full  support of small business. 

President Reagan’s quip of the seven scariest words “I’m from the government here to help” was,  while funny, NO JOKE at all. 

I WILL FIGHT TO:

  • Eliminate CRT & SEL in our schools

  • Support our Law Enforcement

  • Eliminate Mask & Vaccine Mandates

  • Promote Pro-Life Policies

  • Lower Taxes

  • Return to The Rule of Law
