Statement: I believe that we must care for our citizens, that means good well funded schools, colleges or vocational education, apprenticeships for good jobs. I believe we need more jobs to sustain our economic future. We need good universal healthcare system for all citizens. We need to quit giving corporations our hard-earned tax dollars if they do not keep and grow jobs in our State. Lastly, we need to help our fellow veterans and homeless. As a gun owner and Viet Nam Veteran we need good common-sense gun regulations to protect our citizens. I ask for your vote.
