Midpoint Conference

I am a strong supporter of unions. I firmly believe that the middle class grew in the 1950s because the union population grew. I also believe the middle class decline over the past 20 years is directly related to the decline in union numbers I have been a member of the Teamster's union and a member of the American Federation of Teachers (AFL CIO) for 33 years. I have also been a local union president several times. I believe collective bargaining is a right that no federal or state law can take away.

Capstone Conference

I am a strong supporter of the second amendment. It says that Americans have the right to buy and keep rifles and hand guns. I support concealed carry for those who have passed a background check and taken a class on their responsibilities I also support hunting and believe it is part of our American heritage. We also have a duty to do everything possible to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.
