Campaign themes

A Personal Statement on the Herald-Dispatch website contains the following themes with exerpt: "Economically I believe we need to compete with our surrounding states for job growth. To compete we must improve our educational system, our perception, our legal system, and stop wreck less spending. I will fight to bring back our moral foundation that has been severely damaged by corruption and activist groups. Finally I am running to reestablish ethics into government and put an end to the "good ol' boy system."'[7]
