My political philosophy is a simple one. Individual opportunity
and a healthy environment help foster individual achievement.
I have seen this with my own life, and others around me. I
believe that less government is better. Its better for businesses,
better for parents, better for our community. I know that
people want to be free to pursue what's best for them and
