In 2020, voters will elect a state representative from District 31B. The candidates are:
About the Candidate: In 2016, I was elected to my first term as the State Representative for House District 31B. Prior to being elected I was a small business owner and served in the United States Army from 1980-1989. After 14 years of marriage, this past February I lost my wife Ellen to liver complications. Between the two of us we have four children and five grandchildren. I regularly attend church services at Radisson Road Baptist Church and I live in East Bethel. My philosophy is that I will work to protect your freedoms because you will always make better decisions affecting your life than any government.
Important Issues: We all have the right to defend ourselves and protect our families. Now more than ever, protecting your Second Amendment right needs to be brought to the forefront. I support Constitutional Carry, Castle Doctrine, and Stand Your Ground legislation. Related to understanding our Constitutional rights, the educational system needs to be addressed along with the erosion of parental rights. The schools have failed to teach basic civics. More people today think we are a Democracy and not a Constitutional Republic. Parents should be the primary caretakers and decision-makers for their children and not the government.
Goals if Elected: My biggest goal has been and always will be giving you more control over your life by getting the government out of your way. This will happen through transparency by re-establishing the single-subject clause and eliminating omnibus bills. You will know how your representative voted on each issue. Protecting your freedoms has never been more critical. The misuse of the governor’s executive powers regarding Covid-19 needs to be addressed immediately so that all three branches of government are respected, and we do not once again fall victim to a dictatorship.
