Issues

Pro-Family

On Life:

My passion for the pro-life cause has been lifelong. I have prayed outside abortion clinics, attended rallies, volunteered at an indigent health care clinic, and supported pro-life organizations and leaders ever since I was a kid. I will never stop leading the fight for the rights of every child, born and unborn, because I believe children are a precious gift from our creator.

On Education:

It is critical that the children of Michigan have the best education available to them, and we know firsthand that families must be given the freedom to choose what works best for their children. The Left doesn't trust parents. I do. I trust them to know their children best, better than legislators and bureaucrats. The Left wants to control your choices as parents. I have and will continue to fight for educational options, because I believe each is important to the health and freedom of education in Michigan, and its foundation: the family.

Pro-2nd Amendment

Our founders understood that armed individuals are "necessary to the security of a free State.” The Left doesn't trust us to live as free and equal citizens, who can responsibly contribute to the defense of our own lives and property. I do. As your Representative, I will always stand strong in defense of our 2nd Amendment rights, and fight back against every liberal attempt to infringe upon our right to keep and bear arms.

Pro-Religious Liberty

Religious liberty is a cornerstone for America and very personal to me. It is the duty of the government to ensure that all Americans are free to exercise religion in accordance with their consciences, and not be forced to choose between complying with their faith and complying with the law. Our First Amendment’s protections of the freedoms of speech, assembly, and religion are precious, and I will always stand up for our Constitutional heritage.

Pro-Limited Government

For tax and spend liberals, taxing the people or borrowing money is always an easy answer for short-term "results." But that mentality crushes our children and grandchildren with debt. I have five children, and I care about the Michigan we leave behind for future generations.

Pro-Business

In Michigan, we need our government to get out of the way of business. As a small business owner, I will fight for lowering taxes, cutting government red tape, and getting Michigan back to work.

Pro-Law Enforcement

The brave officers who risk their lives daily to protect our communities deserve our full support. Democrats on the extreme left continue to demonize law enforcement and push for dangerous policies to defund the police. I will always stand with our men and women in blue to make sure they have the resources they need to keep us safe.

Pro-Conservative Values

Michigan is vulnerable to the nationwide liberal agenda. Governor Gretchen Whitmer is to us what Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton are to Washington - Whitmer wants to erode Michigan's freedoms with socialist healthcare, gun control, debt, and centralized power. She doesn't hesitate to weaken our workforce, hamstring our job providers, and ignore the Legislature. The 35th District must send a strong conservative leader to Lansing who will fight for common sense policies and get results for the people of Michigan.

Pro-Secure Elections

​The 2020 election exposed many flaws with our electoral system as we witnessed Michigan’s election officials commit glaring misconduct. Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson sent out millions of unsolicited absentee ballot applications without measures in place to identify fraudulent submissions. Election workers were illegally instructed by Secretary Benson to presume the accuracy of signatures on absentee ballots. Michigan’s outdated Qualified Voter File caused absentee ballot applications to be sent to deceased residents or former Michigan citizens that registered to vote other states. Our form of government depends upon the consent of the governed, and violations of the electoral process undermine faith in government and call the integrity of our elections into question. ​

This is why election integrity has been a top priority for me during my first term in office. I introduced House Bill 4491, which would clean up the state’s qualified voter file by removing deceased voters. This bill is part of a larger package of much-needed reforms to fix our electoral system. Within this package is legislation that requires voter ID, prohibits non-accredited election officials from accessing the qualified voter file, requires all electronic poll book software to be retained for 22 months after an election, prohibits electronic poll books from being connected to the internet, increases penalties for knowingly submitting a fraudulent ballot, and prevents the Secretary of State from sending out unsolicited absentee ballot applications.
