We need sunshine in commissioner meetings including full disclosure on conflicts of interest regarding economic gain, relationships, or self-dealing.
Life is sacred and gifted to us by our Creator. I have advocated for the protection of our Second Amendment rights. I have dedicated most of my adult career to educating people in the safe and responsible exercise their right to bear arms. I have trained people in all walks of life how to protect themselves and their families legally and responsibly. I have seen how important this right can be in protecting our God given right to life and will continue to advocate for trained, safe, and legal gun ownership. I will, at every turn, fight to protect this right.
I acknowledge the close connection between a quality education and a trained work force. It is extremely important for Guilford County to invest into our children so they have more job opportunities and can be financially self sufficient. If we sow into our kids future, the community as a whole reaps the benefits. If we do not invest and pour into our young people now, our community and the former students will pay later in unemployment and often incarceration.
Business is the backbone of many of our communities. Employers seek well trained dependable work forces and communities that invest in infrastructure, business, and education. I will work to help create a community that is business and employer friendly, connecting the importance of good employers and jobs as critical to our path forward.
Property taxes have reeled out of control, for many real estate taxes have made it virtually impossible for people to afford their homes. I will not support tax increases, and I will advocate for cuts in wasteful spending.
What we are doing in our households to balance our budgets, we should be doing in our government.
I have not, will not, and never will support mask mandates, vaccine mandates, or other restrictions that infringe on individual rights, business and commerce, or travel. Our Constitution is a sacred document to our nation. A document that people lost their lives to create and protect. This precious document has been shredded over the past several years and is at risk. I support a limited government and the inalienable rights we are afforded.
