Priorities
The number one priority will always be eliminating corruption.
Budget Reform
Government Reform
Immigration Reform

Government exists to protect the rights which are ours from birth, the right to life, to liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We have way too many agencies, boards, and commissions that have no community advisory panel to provide oversight for the people. We need to change that immediately.
