Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Pubic Schools in Montana are overfunded: S
2. Pubic Schools in Montana are underfunded: SO
3. Pubic Schools in Montana are adequately funded: SS
4. Parental choice in education should be expanded through tax credits, education savings accounts, vouchers, and other means to allow children to attend any school of their or their parents choice: SS
5. Montana should allow public charter schools: SS
6. Parents should be allowed to home school their children without additional state regulation: SS
7. The teaching of "Critical Race Theory" (CRT) should be banned in Montana public schools: SS
8. Comprehensive sex education, beginning as early as kindergarten, should be allowed in public elementary schools: SO* My choices above are referring to overloaded administrative costs, not teacher wages. The valued teachers instructing our children deserve higher wages, as they are of prime importance in influencing young minds. Montana children need to come first before teacher union agendas. I believe teachers should have a choice in joining a teachers union in making Montana a Right to Work state. The union dues deducted from their pay could be used to help feed the families of teachers. I believe parents of children in tax-payer funded government schools deserve classroom transparency in the curricula being taught to their children. Reciprocity in accepting teaching certificates issued in other states would enable qualified and excellent teachers to help fill the teacher shortage. History has shown that throwing money at the public schools system has not improved the quality of education.
9. Income taxes in Montana are too high: SS
10. Property taxes in Montana are too high: SS
11. Corporate taxes in Montana are too high: SS
12. The 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows all citizens to own firearms for self-protection: SS
13. Global warming is a problem requiring increased regulation: SO
14. Environmental regulations in Montana are too stringent: S
15. Environmental regulations in Montana are NOT stringent enough: SO* We are responsible for being good stewards of our state natural resources. I am strongly in favor of clean air and natural environment.. However, heavy- handed environmental regulations have rendered a heavy blow to the timber industry on which many families have depended. Our forests need to be properly managed to help prevent forest fires that destroy the natural beauty and wildlife that people come here to enjoy, and choke our air with polluting smoke. Changes in the climate have been a fact of geologic history since the Earth was created. I am for limited government and reigning in administrative agency regulations that create unconstitutional regulatory laws under which people are required to obey, without consent of the governed.
16. Montanans should not be discriminated against or treated differently because of their vaccine status: SS
17. Doctor assisted suicide should be legal in Montana: SO
18. Abortion should be banned in ALL stages of pregnancy: SS
19. Abortion should be banned during all stages of pregnancy, with the exceptions for rape and incest: O
20. Abortion should be banned only after a heartbeat is detected (around 6 weeks): SO
21. Abortion should be banned only after the first trimester (12 weeks): SO
22. Abortion should be banned only when a fetus becomes viable outside the womb (20 weeks): SO
23. Abortion should be banned only after the 2nd trimester (28 weeks): SO
24. Abortion should never be banned, not at any stage of pregnancy: SO
25. The Montana Constitution should be amended to ban abortion: SS
26. Infanticide (infants born alive with physical abnormalities, including infants born as a result of a botched abortion) should be banned in Montana. SS
27. Companies and individuals should be allowed to opt-out of the abortion related mandates contained in Obamacare: SS* All human life begins at conception, is precious, and needs to be protected.
28. Transgender athletes should be allowed to compete against athletes of the opposite sex: SO
29. Doctors should be banned from performing sex-change procedures on minors: SS
30. Homosexuals and transgender people should be allowed to adopt children: SO
31. Non-discrimination laws should be expanded to protect sexual orientation and gender identity in the same way that race, creed, nationality, and religion are protected: SO
32. Montana’s marriage laws should be changed to reflect the recent legalization of same-sex marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court: SO* The Supreme Court got it wrong in their unconstitutional 2015 Obergefell decision that redefined marriage. Marriage is a sacred covenant between one man and one woman. Any deviation from that union goes against nature and nature's God. My position is any medical professional that administers puberty blockers or "gender change" procedures of any type on minors is guilty of child abuse and is punishable as such.
