Articles

Issue Position: Illegal Immigration

Jan. 1, 2018

Gang related violence and crime is now plaguing our State so regardless of who is here whether legally or illegally we must know who is living around us. As a father of a fifteen-year-old son, husband for sixteen years to my wife Kristie, and caregiver to a family member affected by Down syndrome, I believe we must protect everyone especially those most vulnerable. I am sure most of us lock our own doors at night. We do this not because we hate our neighbors but because we need to know exactly who it is looking to enter and we need to avoid any danger that may exist. It becomes extremely difficult to protect the public and our loved ones if we do not have any idea of who exactly is in our midst.

Issue Position: Limited Government

Jan. 1, 2018

I believe everyone is a true 1 in 700 trillion miracle born with unlimited potential and unique abilities. These are just the undeniable statistics between your mother and your father. I believe we must allow individuals to pursue their own dreams and goals without being thwarted by unnecessary taxation, fees and regulations. Everyone has the ability to be great and we must allow individuals to pursue their own greatness without the burden of an overbearing government wanting to control too many aspects of their lives.

Issue Position: Taxes and Spending

Jan. 1, 2018

We must allow families to keep more of their hard-earned income to be used where they see fit. We must allow businesses to succeed in creating more jobs and opportunities for Marylanders. Small business owners are the heartbeat of our economy and we must create an environment for them to thrive and grow. When I ran for State Delegate in 2014, I spoke with countless business owners, families, and retirees who stated that the high taxes and fees imposed on them in Maryland were forcing them out. Governor Larry Hogan has done a masterful job over the past three years of making Maryland more business-friendly. When elected, I will work tirelessly to continue this effort with the governor. This effort must be coupled with the cutting of wasteful spending. We all live on a budget and our state government must do the same.
