Core Beliefs

I am a constitutionalist and believe in government being as small as possible with the most government power being held at the lowest level. This was intended by our founding fathers as they believed it allowed the people to influence those governing much more effectively at the lowest or local level. That people should decide how to run their lives, not the government.

I believe that government has a constitutional role in our daily lives but the ability to assist people at the individual level lies within community organizations such as faith centers, community centers, neighbors, etc. When people care about one another and their neighbors, they will lift one another up in hard times. We see that all the time with calls for donations at retail centers, crowd funding, etc. The American people, especially Marylanders are a generous people.

I believe we must enforce existing laws before creating new laws or remove bad or outdated laws, and the government should never have the right to cherry pick which of its laws it enforces. Maryland legislators consider almost 3000 new laws every year during their 90-day session. Consider a 10% success rate and you have 300 new laws EVERY year! How do businesses and people keep up with that onslaught of new regulations? I believe laws should be considered from a system or environmental approach. When a law is passed, it has second and third order effects across our lives. Our Delegates should be considering this always.

For me, law making starts with “what is the problem being solved”, “is it really a problem and for whom”, “does the law solve the problem” and “what are ALL the impacts of the law”. This is how we run our daily lives and businesses and so should the government.

I fervently believe in term limits and that term limits would solve most our political problems.

I believe government should live within its financial means.

On The Issues

Common Sense in Government

Family

The very foundation of Maryland is the family. Whether it be a traditional family or a single parent family we owe them an environment that has all the tools to succeed or be lifted up. We need to ensure in this modern information age that fairness is applied as much as common sense is.

Education

The goal of education is to shape our youth and inspire them to be responsible citizens and productive contributors to our society.  This should be true in every school and in every district.  I am concerned that this is not happening in Anne Arundel County and District 32 because of the state formula for education dollars.

Law and Order

We are a country of law and order. I believe that government at all levels needs to apply and obey all the laws they have passed. If a law is not enforceable, no longer valid or a political liability for a majority they need to pass a new law. Without law and order we cease to exist as a society.

Budget

Maryland’s state legislature wastes money on inefficient programs, and then creates or raises taxes to pay for it. Taxation of personal income, businesses, gasoline, goods and services, property, death, motor vehicle registration, rain and in 2017 “sunshine” kills job growth. Governor Hogan needs our help to continue and increase job growth.
