I believe the only way to fix the Maricopa County Recorders Office and to get New Election Laws with Enforcement Factors built in is with a person with the experience needed to run a Company and also one who has no interest in a Career in Politics as has been the case in the Recorders for the last few decades and into the present. This person must be willing to be disliked by both sides, and will serve 1 term, fix the problems and then it's up to the voters to guard their Right to Vote, and if I don't get the help of the Legislature to fix the Laws I'll inform the Voters who blocked my efforts to Protect their Right to Vote.

Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Denying federal funding to “sanctuary cities” that do not comply with federal immigration laws S* I believe this must include all Federal Funds including the ED Funds.
2. Allowing all parents to use tax credits, vouchers, or education savings accounts to enable children to attend any public, charter, private, homeschool, or online academy S* The Federal Government isn't even suppose to be in the Education system as it's Local Government Responsibility and not the Fed.
3. Expanding background checks to include guns purchased from private individuals S* This I believe is a good way to prevent some bad people from obtaining guns from law abiding citizens.
4. Using taxpayer funds to support any organization that provides, promotes, or provides referrals for abortion O* Life, Liberty and Justice, without Life the other two really aren't relevant.
5. Prohibiting abortion except when it is necessary to prevent the death of the mother S* I'll support only if it's a proven medical fact and the father if possible must be informed & included in the decision.
6. Providing tax breaks to certain industries over others O* Equal Rights for all and that includes tax breaks, in fact would prefer the Fair Tax.
7. Adding “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” or “gender expression” to the protected classes of race, religion, age, sex, and ancestry in nondiscrimination ordinances O* Our DNA scientifically proves what we are and as this crisis we're going thru now everyone says let the science guide us.
8. Protecting a parent's right to seek professional counseling for their minor child with same-sex attraction or gender identity issues to help them reach their desired outcome S* No Government Interference in what are Family matters.
9. Setting minimum wages above the state minimum wage O* States Rights, we're a Republic not a Dictatorship.
10. Protecting individuals and businesses from being required to use their artistic expression in a manner that violates their conscience S* You can't force one person to serve another, after all we're suppose to be a Nation founded on God Granted Rights.
