Candidate for Assembly in District 9
When confronted with my beliefs as a person and as a Christian, I wanted my political point of view to reflect my beliefs as taught by my parents and what I have come to know as a child of the Most High God.
Issues such as Abortion, Criminal Justice , Equal Opportunity and Basic Fairness, are of paramount importance to me.
As I looked at the Republican Platform, I saw a document that spoke to me and my beliefs.
The issues such as:
  • Affordability
  • Agriculture
  • Condemnation of Racism and Acts of Violence
  • Crime and Justice
  • The Economy and Jobs
  • Education
  • Election Integrity
  • The Environment
  • Equal Opportunity
  • Ethics by Government Officials
  • Family
  • Federalism
  • Government Transparency
  • Healthcare
  • Housing
  • Immigration
  • The Litigation Crisis
  • National Defense
  • Our Ongoing and Historic Support of Proposition 13
  • Private Property Rights
  • Religious Freedom
  • The Right to Bear Arms
  • The Right to Life
  • Senior Californians
  • Taxes and Government Spending
  • Veterans Affairs
  • Water
These all influence and form my Christian world view as well as my Republican apolitical viewpoint. Go check out the Republican Platform at
