Why am I running?
“Our freedom is under assault and if we do not push back hard, we will not be living in a free
country. Both parties have corrupted themselves with money and power, leaving me no
alternative but to make the steep uphill climb as an independent"
How We Will Win
“I’m running on competence. During nearly 30 years of executive leadership, I managed a $200 million budget, and my long, public track record includes some of the best results in the country. When the voters compare what I have actually accomplished with every other candidate, their choice will be clear.
We will pull voters from across the political spectrum because most of us are not partisans. We are Americans who want to live free, take care of our families and pursue our dreams.”
How I Will Govern
Truth. I will always tell you the truth. I will seek the truth in all matters and shine a light
on it for everyone to see.
Freedom. I will always protect the constitutional rights of all citizens. The government
does not give us our rights and unnecessary government intrusion into our lives cannot
Self-Sufficiency and Personal Responsibility are essential to a free society. Able-
bodied people must work, and we are all accountable for the choices we make. We have
endless opportunities as free people, but outcomes are not guaranteed. It’s up to each of
us to create the life we want to live. The dependence and division that are being used as
political strategies to grow government must be defeated.
Results. I will be accountable to the citizens for the results we produce. When
government spends your money, I will be specific about the results we expect and
honest about what we achieve.
