What 2 things about your opponent do the voters need to know?

I just moved into this district, so I don't personally know anything about my opponent.  In fact, I have been a Republican all my life and I have never met my Precinct Chair and that is one thing I plan on changing, if elected.

This is a Republican primary race.  Do you promise, if elected, to abide by the RPT platform? And if not, please enumerate what problems you have.

Yes, I am a conservative Republican 100%!

Define what the word "Conservative" means to you.

Someone who holds fast the the purest form of our Republic and doesn't waiver when pressure comes.

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


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

I am not for anything that will decieve anyone.  I am for anyone who wishes to donate thier money to help a candidate win an election as long as it follows the rules. 

What best describes your political ideology most(circle only one).   
1.        Republican                     
2.        Grassroots                     
3.        Conservative
4.        Tea Party


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

They should be a vocal point of information and someone who can motivate others to get out the word to vote Republican.

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

Unfortunately, I am unaware of this committe or the county chairman.

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

I think that getting everyone involved will bring a nice balance and motivation.

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

I would think the Chair would be the cheif organizer and motivator to move conservative values further.

Should party primaries be "open" or "closed" & why?

Closed, so that only registered true Repubicans can select their leadership.

Should the GOP County Chair be selected by the elected County Executive Committee, or in the Open primaries where Democrats can cross over for more moderate candidates?

Keep it within the elected County Executive Committee.

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

Unfortunately, at this time, I do not have enough information to accurately answer this question.

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

I am not familiar with Dade Phelan enough to answer this question.


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?



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

I oppose "social programs" because they are unnecessary and the kids will learn more from good old fashioned teaching with the teachers being able to focus their time and energy where it belongs, on the students not all the programs.


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


Do you agree with precinct chairs involvement in republican primaries? Why or why not?

I think good strong republicans should be able to help in any form they are willing and able to.

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?

The GOP Chair should be focused on the GOP and providing information and guidance to the party and the people we serve.

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?

Keeping in the Spirit of Christmas, the Bible states in Luke 1:41a "And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. . ."  I believe upong Conception, a child is alive and has all the "right to life" to be carried for 9 months and born.  If the Mother doesn't want the child, adoption is the best solution and will give another couple a person to love.


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

Enforce  the laws on the books!  Living in America is a previledge and shouldn't be given away.


What does being a conservative mean to you?

It means adhering to Old Fashioned Truths and Values.

List 3 changes that should be made to how elections are conducted in Montgomery County.

I need more information to accurately answer this question.

Do you support current RPT chair Matt Rinaldi in full and if not, what do you disagree with?

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with him, but hope to know more soon.
