Statement:
As a conservative, I believe most problems are best solved by applying the principles of limited government and respect for constitutionally guaranteed individual rights. if elected as a state representative, these principles will guide my votes in the legislature. I wish to utilize my scientific and clinical laboratory training background to help craft policy which will improve economic growth in the state of Arizona. Further, as a governing board member for the fourth largest school district in Arizona (Peoria Unified School District, serving over 36,000 students and their families), I've had experience with both the successes as well as shortcomings within Arizona's educational system. I strongly believe we can, and we must do better.
