Issues

JUDEO-CHRISTIAN VALUES:

  • I am proud to live in a country where the founders based our government on Judeo-Christian values. It is essential that we fight to preserve these values in a world today that makes it much tougher to follow the example set by our forefathers.
  • I want to go to Tallahassee to work to protect these values and see that government does nothing to affect the morality of our state and the environment our children and grandchildren are raised in.

TAXES & SPENDING:

  • I believe that the government’s role should be kept as small as possible, allowing the private sector and individual citizens to shape the state. The role of government should be limited to ensuring that the citizens’ rights and freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution are protected.
  • The government should only collect enough tax to meet the requirements for its core functions, which include law enforcement & public safety, public education, securing our boarders and transportation & infrastructure.

EDUCATION:

  • To foster success in the classroom and attract highly qualified teachers, we need to expand salaries and benefits, and provide bonuses to high-performing teachers. 
  • Our government should support school choice and home schooling programs.
  • Florida’s education system needs to give students the environment they need to succeed both in and beyond higher education. I support state-led initiatives to improve K-12 schooling to ensure students are properly prepared to enter college and ultimately the workforce.

TRAFFIC & INFRASTRUCTURE:

  • A basic role of government is to provide quality roads and infrastructure for its citizens. Orlando is one of the fastest growing metro areas in the state, and it’s critical that we provide the infrastructure to facilitate this economic growth all along the I-4 corridor. As your State Representative, I will maintain a steadfast commitment to improving our roads and highways to reduce traffic and better the quality of life of Central Florida residents.

ABORTION:

  • An unborn child, like any individual in this country, has an individual right to life that should not be infringed upon. I believe that the rights guaranteed to all Americans in the Fourteenth Amendment (Equal Protection of the Law) apply to unborn children as well.
  • I oppose using public revenues to promote or carry out abortions, and also oppose any health care options that include the coverage of abortion. Instead, support tax incentives for those who choose adoption over abortion.

GUN RIGHTS:

  • Governmental regulation of firearms is largely unconstitutional and therefore, most gun laws are an infringement on the individual’s rights to bear arms. Second Amendment gives the right to the individual to protect himself and his family, and I pledge to protect that right.
  • As a Lifetime Member of the NRA, I oppose any attempt to dismantle important laws like ‘Stand Your Ground’ that enable Floridians to protect their families from harm.

IMMIGRATION:

  • We need to secure our border and enforce our current immigration laws. As someone who immigrated to the United States and understands how the process works, I recognize the need to reform certain aspects of our immigration system. To keep the American Dream alive, our government needs to construct a streamlined system that allows families to enter our country legally, and does not incentivize the costly and often dangerous illegal crossing of our border.
