Q: Describe yourself on the political spectrum (i.e., fiscal conservative/social liberal, libertarian, social moderate/fiscal liberal).
A: This is my first time being directly involved in politics at all. I have always believed in what was right and fair and never put a label on it. After doing some research I would consider myself closest to a fiscal conservative/social liberal. Most importantly, I consider myself a human being.
Q: What is the biggest challenge facing Montgomery County today?
A: Inclusion and acceptance. Montgomery County is a very diverse county and I believe that is what makes us great. However, our policies, laws and views seem to be very outdated and out of touch. which can be mistaken as segregation. If we could give everyone the opportunity to be who they are and respect them as people and provide them with the assistance they need to grow and succeed, we could overcome whatever challenges come our way.
Q: What is the one thing – project or program – that you want to achieve?
A: The reformation of Social Services/ Welfare. We need to make sure we are funding programs that are helping the members of our community. As of right now the program that the county offers for assistance to the community is anti-family, anti-growth, anti-success and anti-friendly. It has been that way for generations. This program is wasting money and not really helping families, I will change that.
Q: How will you pay for your project/program?
A: My biggest project will not cost a cent more than what they are already spending. In fact, I will save the county hundreds of thousands of dollars, grow the economy, strengthen families and secure our future. To fund other projects I have, I have 2 major ways we could generate the necessary funding and protect our community all in one.
1. Require a Driver’s license refresh test every 2 years.
2. Require all drivers to be certified in Basic First Aid and CPR. Not requiring them to help but to at least know how to properly help in the event of a emergency. Protecting both drivers and pedestrians. This will eliminate majority of the issues we face on the streets. This could also save someone’s life. Education is the key to the future. All the money made from these additions could go to our schools and resources for our community.
