I come from a proud family that has been involved in public service for as long as I can remember. I want to work for you. The issues below are not the only things that I care about. These issues are the closest to my heart. Know for sure -- any issue that affects the people of Indiana will be important to me. I'll be sure to thoroughly research and investigate the topic. My utmost responsibility is to support and defend the constituents I've been elected to represent.
LIST OF ISSUES
PRO SECOND AMENDMENT
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." - Our Founding Fathers. Seems clear enough to me.
But do you know what the Indiana Constitution says about our defense?
"Article 1. Section 32. The people shall have a right to bear arms, for the defense of themselves and the State."
I am a Christian and a father. I served in the military because I believe we are called upon to the defend those that cannot defend themselves. Who could possibly need more defending?
PROGRAMS AND CARE FOR VETERANS
Taking care of my brothers and sisters that serve or have served our country is near and dear to my heart. Promoting programs designed to educate, train, employ and support our military is not only good for the veteran and their family, it is good for our state.
I grew up in rural Indiana and know the importance of our farms and farm families. Food is a National Security Asset. I believe in doing everything possible to ensure the success and stability of our farms and ensure our precious farm land is never owned by a hostile foreign government.
The illicit drug trade and human trafficking crisis at our southern border affects Indiana and the rest of our country. We must work with law enforcement and industries drawn into this national crisis. Fentanyl and the trafficking of humans has unfortunately found its way to our state. This is NOT acceptable. Hoosiers deserve better.
The Chinese Communist Party -- The CCP -- has infiltrated every aspect of our lives. They are an active adversary of the United States and we have the capability at the State level of limiting ANY if not ALL ownership of real property in the great state of Indiana. I plan on introducing a bill in the next session to accomplish this.
I completely support and stand behind the nation of Israel. Our nation's support of Israel holds significant moral, strategic and geopolitical importance. Israel is one of our most important and loyal allies and I will always support them at a state and federal level.
