The Economy

·       Regulate commerce to conform to our nation’s values and not the ideologies of political parties. 

·       Promote American industry by giving states assistance in creating jobs programs for all workers of various skills and income levels.  

·       The federal deficit must not place unreasonable burdens on future generations.

·       Tax policies should raise only the minimum revenue necessary to fund functions of government.

Inflation

Every time we go to the supermarket, pay a fuel bill, take a vacation... and pretty much everything else, we see the crushing force of inflation Our struggles to make ends meet are the direct result of out-of-control spending supported by President Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and my opponent Katherine Clark. 

Progressive spending policies have resulted in the highest price increases in over four decades. Irresponsible spending affects us right now, and it has created unsustainable amounts of debt that will burden generations to come. 

 

Despite unprecedented federal spending by the Biden Administration and Congresswoman Clark they continue to promise even more uncontrolled spending policies. Continued runaway inflation is robing middle-class citizens of their standard of living and decreasing the value of their life's savings.  

 

This cannot be allowed to continue.  

 

I ask you to elect me to Congress to be your representative. I pledge to fight out-of-control spending. Together we can bring inflation under control. Let's protect your savings... and your children's future.

Energy

  • Here in Massachusetts, we pay some of the highest energy rates in the nation, and it’s about to get much worse. Members of Congress support irresponsible energy policies that will leave us all out in the cold this winter.  

  • We must take a multi-faceted approach to lowering energy costs here in Massachusetts.

  • I’ll support sound energy policies that increase oil and gas production and infrastructure, expand hydropower and nuclear, as well as the practical use of wind and solar. 

  • Help me bring a common sense approach to our energy future that will restore affordable energy rates to the people of Massachusetts.

Crime

  • 25% of US adults fear being attacked in their own neighborhood, according to a poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

  • Crime is no longer something that happens to someone else. A father is killed visiting his son in college, a woman is randomly beaten in the subway, and a mother is shot taking her baby for a walk

  • This has to stop. We need a return to protecting citizens' rights and stop protecting criminals

  • End "No Cash Bail"

  • Stop the revolving door court system and hold criminals accountable

  • Remove ineffective district attorneys and attorneys general from office

  • Renew our support for law enforcement, end calls to defund police

Drug Smuggling and Human Trafficing at the Border

  • Over the past 2 years, we have watched helplessly as our nation's southern border has been taken over by drug cartels.

  • Joe Biden and a complicit Congress, are allowing cartels to smuggle humans and fentanyl across our border with near impunity.

  • Upwards of ninety-five (95) % of the fentanyl enters via our southern border. Massachusetts families are suffering from the loss of their loved ones and the sharp increase in crime.

  • Drug cartels operating on the southern border are causing untold suffering to women and children.

  • The most vulnerable are being assaulted as they make the journey into the U.S.

  • Human beings transported by smugglers become ransom pieces.

  • Our policies must not tolerate human trafficking or the loss of our children to fentanyl poisoning.

  • We must stop the cartels and secure our southern border from smuggling and human trafficking. 

Parental Rights in Education

  • Parental rights are fundamental

  • Children need to be raised by parents. They are uniquely qualified to have a child’s best interests at heart. We must protect our right to have a powerful voice in the education decisions that affect our children’s future.

  • Parents deserve to have transparency in curriculum. We need to return our focus to basic skills, like reading, math and science. We need to remove politics and culture wars from the classroom. We need to return our focus to curriculum that provides the best opportunity for our children’s success.

  • Parents cannot play an active part in their child’s education if their voices are not heard. Or if there is fear of retribution for opposing views. We must create legislation that protects our right of notification and permission, from the classroom to the soccer field.

  • The right to opt out or even seek alternative school choice needs to be strengthened. Whether it be charter, faith based, or homeschooled the money should follow the child. Healthy competition in the education system will improve academic standards across the board.
