Will you endorse the primary winner Y/N?

Likely yes, but to be determined - As my opponents have not been involved in the GOP or the conservative movement until they decided to run for the 4th Assembly seat, I am still evaluating their background and ability to be a respected leader in our party's efforts. 


Why you are most qualified for this seat

I am the only candidate to deliver 7 consecutive years of tax relief, government debt reduction, and private-sector job growth.

Job growth is critical to our state's success. As a local leader, I helped recruit hundreds of new jobs to our area.

Lower taxes and reduced government debt are essential to increasing our standard of living.  I led the way to eliminate virtually 100% of Howard’s debt and establish the lowest spending per capita of any community its size in Wisconsin.

Limited government leads to greater prosperity.  As a Trustee, I reduced the size Howard's government by 10%.
