STATEMENT:

As your representative, I promise to fight unwaveringly for:

I have a lifelong record of public service during which I have always been a strong advocate for the above principles.

As a legislator, I will pursue all reasonable avenues to allow responsible development of Alaska's natural resources including:
I believe that government should be restricted to performing only those activities that individuals and the private sector cannot perform.

I believe it is imperative that the state balance its budget and protect the Permanent Fund. I will support the present legislative goal of balancing the budget in two years.

I believe preserving public safety is a legitimate role for government. I believe all law-abiding adults should be able, at their option, to protect themselves. I will continue my long record of advocating and protecting the right to keep and bear arms.
