Questions & Answers

1. In this time of high unemployment and budget deficits, what are the most important steps that should be taken to improve our nationís economy and sustain job creation?

Our campaign relies on educating the people of our district enough so they can make educated voting decisions. Through http://www.placeavote.com we will be able to create and foster communities where we can come up with the best decision for me to cast in congress.

2. What, if any, changes should be made to federal health care policies or programs?

There is no doubt that the current system needs certain changes. Our system will allow members to see benefits and pitfalls for each bill presented in congress so they can educate themselves before casting a vote through http://www.placeavote.com. If they do not have the time, they can delegate their vote to a trusted friend or a community leader that has similar beliefs. All constituent results will be tallied and the result will be cast in congress.

3. What are your priorities with respect to our nationís energy policy?

Energy is a key issue and any decisions on this subject will impact generations to come. In order to properly understand these issues as a community we will need a place where we can collaborate safely and securely about the good and bad of each bill so we will can properly guide our nation going forward. With the technology at PlaceAVote, we will be able to reflect the needs and wants of the community.

4. What, if any, changes should be made with respect to our nationís security, including our national defense or anti-terrorism measures?

National defense is another topic that is very important to America's wellbeing. With the technology available through our website, we will help outline the benefits and pitfalls of every single bill. With the voting majority, we will also cast that bill the way our district wants.

5. What is your position on the issue of immigration reform? What, if any, changes to legislation or policy would you support?

Immigration reform can greatly change the valley in many different ways. We believe the people know how to represent themselves the best way possible and if armed with knowledge will be able to better represent themselves than what the current system provides for.
