Q: Why are you run­ning for of­fice at this par­tic­u­lar time? In other words, what is the spe­cific im­pe­tus for your run this year?

A: I have al­ways been lead to ser­vice. Most of my ca­reer ex­pe­ri­ence comes from serv­ing oth­ers. I have never held pub­lic of­fice and some say that is my big­gest li­a­bil­ity. I couldn’t dis­agree more; I feel it is time for new and fresh ideas to com­bat the changes that we see in our govern­ment.

Q: Why specif­i­cally are you run­ning for state rep­re­sen­ta­tive as op­posed to any other of­fice?

A: The tim­ing was right with this seat be­ing va­cated by the ex­ist­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tive. Af­ter fight­ing as a tax­payer ad­vo­cate in govern­ment for some time and be­ing asked by friends and rel­a­tives to en­ter pub­lic ser­vice ev­ery­thing just seemed right. I dis­cussed this with my fam­ily and asked for their sup­port. They all re­sound­ingly told me that they were sup­port­ive of the idea. Q: What is your plat­form? A: Elim­i­nat­ing the in­come tax and adopt­ing a FairTax in Ge­or­gia; Ex­pand­ing school choice; Govern­ment ethics re­form; Pro­tect­ing Sec­ond Amend­ment rights; Com­mon sense over Com­mon Core.
