- Excerpt: "As a business owner, I know how to balance a budget responsibly and find new and innovative ways to reduce spending. I am a patent attorney by profession – I deal with innovation each and every day. I will bring the same common sense approach and innovative mindset I use in my business and home to the state senate."
- Excerpt: "If elected, I will vote against new taxes and fees. I want to cut the out-of-control spending rather than increasing the financial burden on working families."
