I am a conservative Republican who has been active in issue advocacy for years. I have spent my lifetime helping others overcome obstacles, build bigger businesses, serve more people in need and make lives better for customers, care recipients, employees and volunteers.
The problems that I help solve are frequently caused by overwhelming government regulation. I see the role of a Congressman as advocate for the state – a defender of State’s rights in a capital where the Federal Government tries to make the states subservient.
I believe that the Federal Government was created by the states, to serve the states… not the other way around.
