There's discussion about making major revisions to the RPT Platform. Please describe the nature of any major changes you support.

The RPT Platform is very redundant and needs a complete rewrite.

Should the county GOP chair be involved with fundraising? Why or why not?

The MOCO Republican chair should be responsible for raising funds to help elect Republican candidates and to pay the expenses for the MOCO headquarters.  The chair should NOT be working to raine funds for other PACs. 

Do you like the Steering Committee style of leadership currently in place or that of just a county chairman?

I do like the Steering Committee style of leadership.  I would like to  see some adjustment on who sits on the SC.  I think there should be non CEC members on the SC. 

Do you think the 'Republican' brand should be used by PACs in their names that may deceive voters? Why or why not?"

No.  It causes confusion to the voters.

Do you beieve that the county chair/precinct chairs should actively participate in at least one committee?


Are you willing to put in the time necessary to attend CEC meetings, additional committee meetings, training sessions, blockwalking, etc?

Yes and I have.

How do you believe precinct chairs should be involved in elections? (election judge, clerk, none?)

It is the responsibility of the Pct Chairs to run the elections in their Pct.  The Pct chair should be responsible to either find a Republican to hold the election or be the judge themselves. 

What's your position on Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan?

He need to not be Speaker.  There needs to be a true Constitutional Conservative in that position!


Would you support legislative action to establish a salary framework (possibly related to the Gov. salary) for all taxpayer funded employees with a stipulation that elected officials be required to get voter approval to exceed that framework for their own salaries?


Other civil liberty

Do you support or oppose federal funding for Planned Parenthood and other agencies that perform abortions, both in the U.S. and abroad (even if they use money derived from other sources)?



Do you support or oppose social programs in our schools (like C-Scope, Common Core, CRT, International Baccalaureate, SEL, etc.)? Why or why not?

oppose.  Children are NOT to be used as social experiments. 


Is there anything in your background of an embarrassing nature that should be explained before your election? Arrests/Convictions? Bankruptcys?


At what point should the "right to life" or "personhood" be granted to new human beings (e.g., at conception, sign of heartbeat, 3 months of pregnancy, birth, 5 days old, etc)? What action, if any, will you take to reflect this in law?

At conception.  

I have supported the rights of the unborn since R v W was enacted and forced down our throat by the SCOUTS enacting laws from the bench. I will support only candidates that are prolife from natural conception to natural death.  For me and my family life is a precious gift from God.  Prolife is the 1st qualification I use in deciding on any candidate, full stop. 

Should the county GOP chair be involved in any other political organizations, including PAC's, while serving a term as the chairman? Why or why not?

No.  The responsibilities of the County Chair should be their prime responsibility.  


What, if anything, should be done to protect our borders from illegal immigration?

Close the southern border!  Build the wall!


Do you support or oppose the referendum passed by both the MoCo GOP Executive Committee and SREC to allow voters, at the statewide level, to decide whether or not they want a particular toll road?



What does being a conservative mean to you?

Strict adherence to the US Constitution.  Prolife, pro-God, pro-guns, border control, and pro states rights!
