Issues of concern to me are:
lowering tax burden on families, individuals and small businesses; protecting the rights of parents to determine how and where their children are educated; standing firm for the precious right to life of the unborn, the elderly, and the handicapped; fighting to keep harden criminals behind bars, working to swiftly implement the death penalty when called for, and supporting the victims right to restitution; eradicating pornography; standing resolutely against the homosexual agenda; building a functional freeway system in the East Valley and statewide, eliminating the oppressive Vehicle license tax, calling for accountability and a thorough investigation of CPS practices and generally doing all within my power to be a voice for the families of Arizona at the state legislature.
