How would you use your position as an elected official to help 
businesses create jobs in Southern Arizona?

I would work with companies to bring high tech companies to Arizona, I also would work to expand U of A’s medical program; to add major research, such as TGEN, which is currently in Arizona. But we need to expand our medical programs in returns will bring high paying jobs back to Arizona.

Should the qualifications for Medicaid or AHCCCS be broadened to make more people eligible?


If you were in a position to vote on SB1070, would you have voted for 
or against it?

I would have voted for it; my wife is a citizen of this great country since 2008, and we did it by the rule of law. No to the Dram Act and no to amnesty. I have a detailed border security plan and a illegal immigration plan, visit my web site

In a world of finite resources, what if anything would you be willing 
to cut to better fund education?

To better fund our education system is to close the Department of Education from the federal level. When that is done, we bring the power back to states rights and back to local school boards. When that is all accomplished, you then will see major increases in student improvement.


Should local government fight to keep the Rosemont Copper Mine out or 
encourage the company to stay?

I don’t want to see any jobs lost in Arizona, but I also don’t want our area water table to run dry, or more have our water supply tainted by the mining. If the mining company can create jobs and protect the area water supply from being tainted or from running dry, I think then I could support the mine, but only if they agree to protecting the water, in writing.

What is the most important issue in your race?

Jobs, border security, and illegal immigration.
