|Info||I decided to run for Governor when the Arizona Medical Board determined that repeatedly drugging my son into a comatose condition, known as obtundation, was an acceptable standard of medical care and one of the hopes of my campaign is to bring attention to the State’s dysfunctional “cycle of services” where the State’s customers are routinely referred throughout the system with no resolution to their problem. |
My experience with the State is that the system finds ways to tell its customers what it can not do instead of doing what it can do. Through my repeated efforts to protect my son, I came to conclude that the State was similarly obtunded.
I am a fiscal conservative. I oppose wasting taxpayer's money.
I strongly believe in personal liberty.
I believe that it is time for a real and substantial change that reevaluates every department in the State and includes judicial reform.
I believe that the State needs to investigate more intelligent ways to reduce medical costs. I oppose caps on medical malpractice awards because they will punish the victims of medical negligence and undermine the judicial process .
I support equal rights for all minorities.
I believe that the only way to effectively address illegal immigration is to address the poverty and corruption in Mexico that causes its population to flee. I support a temporary guest-worker plan.
I believe that we need to evaluate the expense of the war on drugs and consider other alternatives to drug problems.
I believe that we need to have a defined and collaborative vision of what we want Arizona to become many years into the future.
I am a 47 year-old steel-framing contractor. I have two undergraduate degrees and am working on my master’s degree in marriage, family, and child counseling.
