Issues


​Abortion
I believe life begins at conception. I will uphold the sanctity of life and protect the defenseless. I will fight to ensure no taxpayer dollars will go to clinics that promote and administer abortions.

2nd Amendment
The 2nd Amendment affords us the right to keep and bear arms. I am an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting and fishing. I will protect the freedoms given to us by the constitution and I support limiting the federal governments involvement in state issues. I will ensure that our right to bear arms is not infringed upon.

Taxes
By the Missouri Constitution our state has to balance its budget otherwise we would be in debt, not because we don’t tax enough, but because we spend too much. Missouri hasn’t had an income tax cut in over 90 years. I support current legislation that will reduce income tax levels, and spur our economy by allowing Missourians to keep more of their money.

Education
Education is vital to our children’s future. Educational policies should not be dictated by lawmakers in Washington, D.C. or from Jefferson City. Leaders on local school boards and parents should be making the educational decisions. In the 139th district we have some of the strongest schools in the state.  We need to hold our teachers accountable and reward those who excel in educating our children in an environment that brings excitement and the desire to learn to the classroom. We should not ask our teachers to teach to the key of a standardized test, but rather teach students how to read, write, and apply math.

Right to Work
Employees should always have a choice of whether or not to join a union.  We are hurting job growth in Missouri by not becoming a Right to Work State. In states that have right to work laws, job growth has risen, but states that do not have a negative job growth. We need to do all we can to promote job growth in Missouri and increase our overall economy.

Pro Small Business
We need to grow businesses by reducing regulations that burden them with needless expenses and time consuming paperwork. The way to grow the economy is to get out of the way of small businesses. They know what is needed to grow their business. Without needless regulations, businesses will invest in expanding and hiring more employees.
