Campaign themes

  • Pensions
Excerpt: "The State manages 5 pension systems, Judge’s, state employee’s, teacher’s, State Universities, and the General Assembly retirement system. The last one I just mentioned should be completely eliminated; there is no reason why a legislator should be receiving a pension, this is not a career it’s civil service and that is exactly why I turned down the lucrative General Assembly pension."
  • Medicaid Reform
  • Balancing the Budget
  • The Economy and Jobs
  • Education
