Campaign issues


  • Economy and Jobs

Excerpt: "My 10 Year Plan, The Return to Prosperity for America’s Struggling Cities will help improve the economic climate in Michigan and other states. The only jobs a government can create are jobs that have a salary paid by your taxes. Jobs are created mainly by the private sector when the environment for job creation is doing well."[5]

  • Education

Excerpt: "Improving education is the first step in maintaining economic competitiveness around the globe. My goal is to reduce burdensome regulatory hurdles at the federal level to allow state and local governments, and most importantly parents, the opportunity to craft education plans that best suit the needs of their children and the community."[6]

  • Healthcare

Excerpt: "Access to healthcare is important, particularly following a period where a lot of Michigan and the 14th District were out of work and lacked health insurance. Over-arching healthcare legislation, such as Obamacare, is NOT the answer to the nation’s problem."[7]

  • Energy

Excerpt: "It is no new idea that the United States must become energy independent, and simultaneously use alternative energy as our primary form of energy. The United States’ dependency on foreign oil is a point of leverage other nations may use against us in important diplomatic negotiations."[8]

  • Taxes

Excerpt: "Taxes need to be cut responsibly for all American’s. Not only do individuals need tax relief, businesses need it as well. Taxing businesses, eliminates funds that would be available to pay for new employees. By reducing the size of the federal government, we can cut spending to accommodate the necessary tax breaks."[9]

  • Environment

Excerpt: "I have a deep appreciation for how breath-taking this state is, with the right direction we can make sure people drop their jaw and stand in awe for many years to come. I am committed to utilizing the amazing natural resources God has gifted us with, as a responsible steward."[10]

  • Veterans and Military

Excerpt: "Our veterans deserve access to top quality VA hospitals, and treatment for physical and psychological injuries sustained during their service. Cutting funding for veteran’s programs is something that I will not tolerate, and you shouldn’t either. I am committed to our uniformed service members, their families, and our veterans."[11]
