Leaders Must Lead

I am Republican because I believe in strong communities. I believe in a lighter hand of government in most affairs between and among people. I am a Republican because I also recognize that communities and people must come together for a greater good.

The Issues

The 2nd Amendment

The 2nd Amendment

The Constitution has a second amendment for a reason – for people to defend themselves against criminals and prevent an authoritarian state – but we must recognize the need for reasonable regulation, such as universal background checks, limitations on magazine capacity, and requiring training for gun permits to be issued. Our Founding Fathers enshrined a

Church & State

Separation of Church & State

The protections separating church and state are under attack. Many Americans feel unsafe expressing religious or spiritual affiliation. Respect for the intangible space between and among people manifests in legal allowances for spiritual articulation into that space. Further, precedent sets that protections of church and state separations extend to accommodation of personal religious conviction in

Immigration & Citizenship

Immigration is a balance between our nation’s obligation to the persecuted and worthy of asylum and its existential requirement to attract people who can fill gaps in our human capital. We are also a country with borders that must be respected by people on both sides. We exist in a world where we must lead

Development in Rockland

Individual communities should be able to live as they like, but they cannot do so at the indiscriminate expense of another community. Great societies recognize that regions evolve and do not remain the same. The pace of change must be one that is comfortable for families and communities who choose to live in a place

New Tappan Zee Bridge

The largest infrastructure project in the nation – the new Tappan Zee Bridge – should have been a triumph. The bridge was built without a funding plan and without consideration for mass transit. This shortsightedness is a missed opportunity and risks crippling toll increases. Though it would have been natural for such a project to

Drone Technology

America has historically led the way in technological innovation. Our first-mover status in transportation over two centuries is unquestioned. The world looks to the United States as an example of what the future will be like. For this to continue, we must invest in drone technology.

Education: After 150 Years, It’s Time to Revisit

The American educational system is badly in need of an upgrade. Today’s schools are a relic and byproduct of the industrial revolution. Until 150 years ago and the industrial revolution, aside from the wealthy, few children went to school and many spent their days with their parents. The industrial revolution made workplaces too dangerous for

The People’s Law

Respect for the law is essential. When attorneys disrespect the law and treat it as their playground, the People lose. The People have been losing in civil, criminal and family legal matters for decades. The law serves the People, and attorneys must view themselves as priests of the law. The People have a right to

Unions, American Style

The American Labor Union is as impressive a social organization as it is unique. Organized labor was an integral part of the great American advancement of the 20th century. Today, Unions are an accepted part of the American landscape. In order for the USA to maintain its place at the top of the international heap,
