2022 Questionnaire

Please share briefly what inspired you to run for this office and why you feel you’re qualified for the position.


I believe they are not following our Constitution.

With Nevada being a large manufacturer of ‘ghost guns’, or self-assembled firearm kits increasingly being found at violent crime scenes, how should we stop ‘ghost guns’ from being purchased by children and other prohibited persons?

I believe all children should be taught about gun and safety because our 2nd amendment that all people have the right to carry and it shall not be infringed on.

What policies would you propose for dealing with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our state’s economy?


I believe that it is a states right issue and the federal government should stay out.

Our mining laws were written 150 years ago for pick and shovel miners and are out of touch with modern industrial mining. How should we update the 1872 Mining Law to address modern practices?


I believe it is a states right issue the only issue I see is we need to process all minerals within this State and then sell each mineral separately.

Nevada has historically protected the right to abortion, including protecting the right in statute 30 years ago by a vote of the people. However, there remain barriers to access in the state. Do you support not only the right to abortion but policies that improve equitable access to abortion care?


I believe only women who were raped or indest Should be allowed for abortion within 4 weeks.

Comprehensive, age and developmentally appropriate, medically-accurate, inclusive sex education has been proven to improve students’ long-term health outcomes, yet it is not required that students be provided with this information in their sex-ed programs. Do you believe that public school sex-ed programs should be comprehensive, medically accurate, and inclusive?


I believe that the 1609 project and ERA should not be taught in school instead they should teach our students the constitution and how it came about in our country and made it great.Need to get rid of the Department of Education.

It is well documented that patients of color face greater obstacles to obtaining sexual and reproductive health care than non-Hispanic white Americans – a pattern that results in worse health outcomes overall for BIPOC patients. Do you not only acknowledge systemic racism’s role in public health disparities but will you pursue policies that seek to rectify the historical harm of systemic racism and advance equitable access to health care?


I believe in equal rights for all and anyone not practicing this shall lose their license and be procucted according to the issue.

Knowing that the death penalty is exorbitantly expensive, racially discriminatory, and does not promote true healing for victims family members, do you support its abolition?


No I think it’s the only way to stop people from comiting horrible crimes and color shouldn’t matter.if you commit the crime you do the time..

What will you do to support the initiatives of Nevada’s 27 Tribal Nations and communities, many of which are located in rural areas and lack access to basic needs including full health care, fresh food / clean water and broadband services?


I believe that they are controlled by the Indian government and run their own future and I believe they can get free medical at our VA services water should be provided along with food and broadband by the tribes.

How would you use your office to strengthen the rights of the undocumented population and their access to their legal protections, critical public services, and quality of life?

No I believe they must go back accross the border and wait like every one else. They are here illegally and should follow the laws.

Would you support policies that provide status protections to immigrant workers who are organizing and exercising their workplace rights?

Yes I would. we need to allow legally permitted alien’s over time to get a way to citizenship if they have not been involved in any criminal activities that break our laws.As a Repulic our country is based on laws.

What is your position on universal background checks for firearm sales and other policies to address gun violence in this country?

I believe all aliens have the same rights as anyone else if they are here leagally.

According to the Human Rights Campaign, The Every Child Deserves a Family Act (ECDFA) would prohibit any child welfare agency receiving federal financial assistance from discriminating against any potential foster or adoptive family on the basis of religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status. In addition, ECDFA would prevent discrimination against any foster youth because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Do you support the Every Child Deserves a Family Act?

The states already have their policies for background checks.I believe everyone has the right to carry and should if they have gun training. If more people carried there would be less problems because everyone would think twice if someone had a weapon before breaking the law.

Do you support the GLOBE Act, which would, according to the Human Rights Campaign, build a framework into U.S. diplomacy to protect LGBTQ+ human rights worldwide. The bill would make preventing and responding to discrimination and violence against the LGBTQ+ community a foreign policy priority and permanently create a Special Envoy within the State Department to advise the Secretary of State on LGBTQ+ human rights issues. In addition to the permanent Special Envoy at the State Department, the GLOBE Act would establish an interagency group within the U.S. government tasked with responding to attacks on LGBTQ+ outside the United States, ensuring that the United States acts as a leader in defending LGBTQ+ equality worldwide.


Rep. Lee’s rewritten bill (formerly H.R. 1305) addresses the serious problem of discrimination in the use of criminal and civil laws against people who test positive for HIV. It would create incentives and support for states to reform their existing policies that use the criminal law to target people living with HIV for felony charges and severe punishment for behavior that is otherwise legal (such as consensual sex between adults) or that poses no measurable risk of HIV transmission. Thankfully, we modernized our HIV criminal laws in Nevada, do you support this effort at the federal level?


One Out of seven people in Clark County are food insecure. What policies would you propose to ensure people are not residing in food deserts and have access to healthy food and water sources?

This is a states right issue and Nevada already fixed the issue.
