What experience do you bring to the job and what is your motivation to serve the people of Georgia?

My expertise in operations of accounting, computers, and engineering allows me to understand details from many of the experts that present themselves to the legislature.

If elected, what would be your top three priorities and how would you work to achieve results?

My top priorities:
1. Find out what is happening with the politics of the new legislature.
2. In searching, look out for what other legislatures are promoting to see if some of my ideas and ideas from my constituents can be joined.  
3. Start prepping to generate a weekly newsletter.

At least five rural hospitals have closed their doors since 2013 and Georgia has the worst maternal mortality rate in the nation, with 35 maternal deaths for every 10,000 live births. How would you address the lack of healthcare access in rural areas?

I would require a fixed tax amount for each driver per year to help pay for a system to save lives on all Georgia roads. This Georgia road medical system would be used to connect to other medical providers.

Foreign-born Georgians own 31% of the businesses in our state. Legal Permanent Residents and naturalized citizens contribute approximately 1.8 billion dollars in state and local taxes each year. How will you help ensure Georgia is a welcoming place for foreign born entrepreneurs and their families?

I would be looking for ways for our heritage population to be able to obtain labor jobs which improves their on-the-job training skills and in turn expands their careers.

The current minimum wage in Georgia is $7.25 an hour. A person working 40 hours makes $290 a week, approximately $1160 a month. Do you support raising the minimum wage, why or why not?

I would want minimum wage increases to be translated to state-subsidized payments to our legal workers for each hour of their work. This would effectively raise the minimum wage without hurting small businesses.
