“I am running for Rush County Commissioner, because I believe some of the most valuable assets we have in this county are our farmers, farmland, and agricultural community. I believe that these assets were targeted in 2023 through the prospect of a solar “farm” industry wanting to take over our precious farmland, so the solar company could get the government incentives, which come from our hard earned tax dollars.”
LIST OF ISSUES
I am thankful to live in a county that believes in strong Christian values. The Bible teaches fiscal responsibilty, loving your neighbor as yourself, honesty, and accountability. I believe strongly in these biblical truths.
PROTECTING OUR FARMLAND
I am 100% AGAINST solar "farms" on our farmland! Solar "farms" and windmills are a collosal joke. They are not efficient as an energy source. These solar companies aren't looking to improve the environment. They are looking to line their pockets with our hard-earned tax dollars through Government subsidies, while limiting our food source by taking away precious farmland. I will do everything in my power to protect our farmland and our citizens from solar and wind companies.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment and our right to keep and bear arms, as well as our ability to do it without a state-issued license. If they can give you a license, then they can also take it away from you. The research that I have done shows that states that have passed Constitutional Carry have experienced the crime rate either staying the same or DECREASING! Did you know that the state of Vermont has ALWAYS been Constitutional Carry?!
I believe that we should NOT be slave to the lender. There should be no debt in the government. We should only work within our budget and live below our means, which would greatly decrease the need for the number of taxes that citizens would be responsible to pay.
The Federal government continues to overstep the boundaries given to it by the US Constitution, which continues to erode our freedoms. State and local governments have shown that they are following suit, as we clearly saw in 2020 how some county Health Departments and Commissioners were weaponized against citizens' abilities to make their own medical choices for themselves, their families, and their businesses. Governor Holcomb also showed us where his commitment was, as he kept us in a perpetual state of emergency, so Federal funds could keep rolling in. Where do those Federal funds come from?! From the backs of hard working Americans!!!
I have a great respect for our law enforcement. When the unconstitutional mask mandates came through our counties, it was our Sheriffs who stood up for what they knew was an overreach of the government. They were our only real line of defense against our rights being taken away from us.
I believe that we have a Constitutional right to make medical decisions for ourselves and our families without the infringement from government entities at any level.
