Family Values

The family is the foundation of society and I believe it is under attack. As our government continues to extend itself into our lives, it is our families that pay the price. We can strengthen the families of this great state by returning to the idea of personal responsibility and accountability.

I believe marriage is between a man, a woman, and God. These are fundamental principles and are essential in maintaining strong families in our state.
