Why did you choose to run for this office?
I wanted to be part of Michigan's comeback.
What is the most pressing problem facing the State of Michigan?
Under the current administration in Michigan there have been both more revenues (taxes), and cuts in the budget. Do you prefer a more balanced combination of the two to continue balancing the budget or would you prefer more taxes or more cuts?
We've reached the point of having more revenue than costs so we don't need too much more. No matter how much money is in the bank…it's good to appropriate the public's money wisely.
What do you bring to this race, and potentially to the office you seek, that would make a difference for the people of Michigan?
I am a small business man, a veteran and I'm "all in" for Michigan.
Given the political polarization in Lansing and Washington, D.C., is there something you would do to try and change that culture or do you believe that highly partisan politics is simply "the way it is" in today's legislative environment.
I am a moderate. Whether a voter is Democrat or Republican, liberal or conservative…we all want the same thing: Quality schools, a clean environment, a robust economy and safe streets. We're really not that different.
