Why should voters elect you? "Conservative taxpayer and business organizations confirm that I have consistently voted for less taxes, less spending, less regulations, to protect life and Americans' constitutional rights."
What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction? "Residents of Maryland's 6th District depend upon their representative in Congress to fulfill the federal government's responsibility under our Constitution to win the war against terrorism without undermining the Bill of Rights and to promote tax, budget and regulatory policies to strengthen the economy and encourage the creation of jobs. If the United States wins the war on terror, but Americans lose our civil liberties, then the terrorists will have won. Less taxes, less spending and less regulations will help create more jobs."
