  • "Common Sense Issue #2:Taxes" - "The less taxes each West Virginian has to pay, the more disposable income each West Virginian has to spend in West Virginia businesses."
  • "Common Sense Issue #3:The role of Government" - "I believe that government should be responsible for protecting it's citizens, creating and maintaining it's infrastructure, balancing the state budget, listening to the voice of each citizen, and representing it's citizens with nonpartisan integrity."
  • "Common Sense Issue #4:Abortion" - "I value every life, from conception to the hospital bed or hospice house. I do not understand how any parent or physician can willingly end the life of another human being.
