The voters of District 27 have a clear choice in selecting a person to represent them in the State Senate. I believe government should remove the legislative/regulatory obstacles and oppressive tax codes that strangle business growth and expansion. I embrace, without apology, the fundament tenants of:
Rights of Property Owners
Traditional Family Values
Economic and Social Conservatism
We have within us the ability to achieve great things. We should set high standards and reach for what seems impossible without forgetting that there is a higher purpose than "self." Each of us has a purpose, a great purpose, and we must strive be all that we are intended to be.
Don't cast your vote for the "lesser of two evils." Cast your vote for fundamental principles. Together we can make a difference.
