Faith

Faith in something is the groundwork for everything.

  • Love for our Neighbor
  • Care for our Community

…a more excellent way:

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profits me nothing.
Love suffers long, and is kind.
Love doesn’t envy.
Love doesn’t vaunt itself, and is not puffed up.
Love doesn’t behave itself unseemly.
Love doesn’t seek not her own, and is not easily provoked.
Love thinks no evil, rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
– Bible

Fortitude

There is no reason we cannot have a robust and expanding economy in La Porte County, Porter County, and NW Indiana.
To do this, we must create the conditions conducive for economic growth – cut taxes, reduce government spending, eliminate costly and burdensome regulations, and foster an economic climate that gives businesses confidence to invest and create jobs.
We know from experience that government spending programs don’t work. Government doesn’t create wealth. Government doesn’t inspire the ingenuity and creativity of the American worker. Government merely saddles us and our children with an ever growing burden of debt that acts as a drag on the economy. Excessive government spending does not create sustainable good-paying jobs. The bulk of job creation comes from private sector businesses.

I support cutting taxes for working Hoosiers and the businesses that hire them. Lower taxes means less money taken by government and more money left for businesses to expand and create jobs and more money left in the pockets of Hoosiers to spend as they see fit.

I support reducing the regulatory burden on businesses. Senseless regulations are costly. The more money businesses must spend to comply with government mandates, the less they have to reinvest and hire workers.

I support maintaining Indiana’s balanced budget and high credit rating. Hoosier families should live within their means and save for emergency situation. Our Indiana government should do so as well.

If we maintain a balanced budget, cut spending, lower taxes, and minimize government regulations (control), our Indiana economy will continue to grow and create jobs.

Family

Family values are essential to our communities. I believe in maintaining a good, thriving, family structure for everyone.
