  • Responsibilities
Excerpt: "Our state economy is struggling and much of the blame falls on the mismanagement of government over the past several years."
  • Rights
Excerpt: "It’s the responsibility of elected officials to protect the rights and freedoms granted to citizens by the Constitution. Our most important and sacred right is the right to life."
