Core Philosophy

  • I believe that a person’s character is the true reflection of who they are.
  • I believe in telling the truth, and not always what people want to hear.
  • I believe that a handshake is more valuable than any contract, and long for the days where peoples’ word was their bond. I am hopeful we can restore that in our country.
  • I believe in people, and fostering an environment of collaborative communication to solve problems and create new opportunities for progress.
  • I believe that every person has value, and we are better off when we listen to everyone, regardless of their background or where they come from, and regardless of their race, gender, political ideology or faith. I have always prided myself on listening to all views, and taking everyone’s opinions and viewpoints into consideration before making decisions.
