I have a desire to serve and help others. As a resident of western Craven County I am an advocate for rural and agricultural issues. I also have an obligation I believe as a Christian to stand up for Christian and moral values in government.
5.       As a representative of Coastal North Carolina, what is your stance on regulation of recreational and commercial fishing?  
Through my involvement in Farm Bureau I have stood with coastal counties to support our commercial fishermen. This industry has struggled due to storms, low prices and regulations.  Our state leadership must put common sense people on the Marine Fisheries Commission. In addition there must be equal representation from the recreational and commercial fishing industry governing this commission.

I support abiding by the Constitution of the United States of America.  No foreign law should be allowed to rule our free Nation.

As a Christian I believe God is the Creator of All Humanity.  He is to be served by those who confess Him as their Lord. I believe prayer is essential to our lives as Christians and should be
allowed in our schools for those that have a desire to pray to God. When I was a student in public school I was blessed to have a Godly teacher who taught me the Lord’s Prayer. I do not believe any student should be forced to participate but I certainly support allowing school officials who have a desire to lead a bible study or prayer to do so.

    Yes… I support picture ID for voting just as I            support it for transacting any other kind of

I support the rights of states to govern their citizens under the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of that State.
