Excerpt: "Support our local natural and historical resources to create new jobs and economic growth."
- Support the existing job creators across the District

I will be a strong voice and defend the hard working people that are the foundation of small communities across America."
- Secure our future by developing a friendly business climate in Virginia with less government involvement.
Excerpt: "I will promote jobs and opportunities locally by cutting wasteful programs and cutting taxes. Encourage new stable, long term jobs for the area in the technical and medical fields. I will always defend and protect Right to Work laws. Yes, I too will jump on board with officials to draw high speed internet providers to our rural area. I understand this is crucial to our future."

Excerpt: "Fight for our fair share of transportation dollars. Insist that once our localities receive tax dollars, they are spent efficiently to maintain our priority needs on roads and bridges."

Excerpt: "These rights are not given to us by our government – We have earned our property and have the authority on its use."
- We must insist on energy independence.
Excerpt: "Businesses and families are crippled by soaring energy costs. I believe we should work resources on our own soil to reduce financial pressure on families and relieve our dependence on foreign control of our future."
- Education is best controlled at the local level-by parents, teachers, and citizens.
Excerpt: "All children should have an equal opportunity to the same education and be able to compete at home or around the world."
