Why should voters elect you?

"The politicians in Washington are not listening. We need a change. My military service demonstrates that I will put my country first."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"The most urgent problem facing Maryland's 6th District is the rapid development which is occurring there. The infrastructure is not present to support this growth. We need to plan for the transportation, education, water and sewer infrastructure to accommodate current residents. There are many other issues that are important to all Americans, to include Iraq, health care and energy. I served in the Army for more than 20 years, including time in Bosnia and Iraq. I understand these issues because they have impacted me personally. I know how to address them, and I care enough to get the job done."
