Making Government better--not bigger, has always and continures to be my political philosophy. Government should be a positive influence for citizens instead of being viewed in a negative way or as an adversary. The following quote from President George H.W. Bush sums up my political views and my responsiblity to them: "For we are given power not to advance our own perposes not to make a great show in the world, nor a name. There is but one just use of power, and it is to serve people."
Protect pro-life and family values
Grow the economy by providing a business friendly environment in Kansas
Limit government regulations and unnecessary spending
Guard services to our elderly and most vulnerable citizens
Help business owner and farm families by keeping a reign on taxes and eminent domain
Protecting 2nd Amendment rights
