Why are you running for office?

To seek solutions to inequality and systemic injustice, defend our Constitution, our people’s rights and be on the side of Truth and Integrity in governance.


How do you assess the Trump administration so far? Name at least one positive and one negative.

There are many POSITIVES: one would be jobs and the economy are excellent.... NEGATIVE: There are still alot of people who cannot embrace the truth or judge him by his accomplishments for our country but instead judge him by his “different” management style.


What effect do you believe the federal tax cuts of 2017 have had on the economy thus far or will have in the future and why? Do you support the cuts?

Yes I support the Fed cuts but that shouldn’t permit our State and local governments to undermine those benefits to local people by raising fees, taxes and charges. Those cuts have helped our economy to soar, while the opposition Party does everything it can to make that fail for political effect.


Is the level of economic inequality in the United States a problem, and why or why not? What, if anything, should the federal government do to address it?

Within the purview of the Congressional seat, the Federal government can only ensure equal treatment and opportunity as permitted/required by law. So the short answer is: it’s not the Fed’s job other than preserve an even playing field with equal access for anyone who wants to make a better life for themselves and family.


Should federal gun laws be changed, and if so, how and why?

No man can “change” an inalienable right as expressed by our Bill of Rights. They are seperate from our man-made Constitution.Our Freedom of speech, our religious observances, our right to self defence and ALL other Rights in our Bill of Rights are unimpeachable. The Bill of Rights was acknowledged by our Founders as our Natural God given rights and codified to prevent government from enslaving the people. Like those other Rights, the 2nd Amendment is what guarantees ALL the others and “shall not be infringed”. Period.


What should Congress do with respect to the Affordable Care Act, how and why? If you believe it should be scrapped, what, if anything, should replace it?

It’s un-Constitutional. Return to personal competitive healthcare. Those who have preconditions or cannot afford healthcare have always been covered. The ACA is nothing but a Socialist usurpation of individual Freedom.


What role should the federal government play in helping cities? What, if anything, would you do for Baltimore, specifically?

AUDIT CITY HALL. The problems with the City are a State problem.... And there is damn sure enough money and taxes being collected and mismanaged but Annapolis refuses to address the problems and city “leadership”, well, there’s no such thing!The Fed needs to stop sending taxpayers money to Baltimore until the corruption is stopped.AND DON’T FORGET, CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT 7 ISNT ALL ABOUT BALTIMORE!


Do you back Elijah Cummings’ bill -- which Republicans say is too expensive -- to provide $100 billion over 10 years to fight the opioid epidemic? Why or why not?

I don’t like blank check government giveaways. That said if an “addict” wants to get clean, I’m all for a results-based approach to funding programs.... Not lining the pockets of bureacrates.


What changes, if any, should Congress make to our immigration and deportation laws and policies? Should the DACA program be preserved? Why or why not?

ENFORCE THEM. Everybody back in line and apply. Secure our borders.


How would you rate the Trump administration’s trade stance with China and why?

He sold rice to China! Next question.


Do you support the president’s decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal? Why or why not?

Yes.... The US had no deal. It was poorly constructed by the previous administration that did NOT have any teeth. So, it was like no deal at all.....


How should the United States address the rise of North Korea’s nuclear program?

At this writing our Federal government IS addressing it. Should I be afforded the opportunity to know classified information about our country’s security I might have a different view. Elect William Newton for the US House of Representatives District 7 Congress and let’s see.


How should the United States address climate change?

It already happens 4 times a year... Do you want it to change more often or less often? As a lifelong Marylander I find it is very undependable.


Do you support the Green New Deal? Why or why not?

NO. Imagined by fools and concieved by idiots. Next?
