General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
As an educator for thirty seven years and a life long resident of the 77th district, I realize the importance the traditional family unit plays in the future of our country. I believe in the same values and core principles our founding fathers sacrificed their lives, honor, and fortunes for. I will never compromise values for political gain. When our foundation is strong, then our economy will be strong. Help me build a strong foundation in Michigan once again. I am ready to face the Giants in Lansing and help move Michigan from a failing grade to the top of the class. I would appreciate your support and vote on August 3, 2010.
