EXPERIENCE TO LEAD IN 2024
I have the experience of leading in difficult situations and accomplishing the mission.
I served 22 years in US Military, and I’ve experienced the impacts of the failure of politics and the decline of our nation’s standing in the world. And unlike some, I believe that America has a bright future ahead of it, if the right leaders are elected. I’ve worked, with lawmakers and policy experts to pass legislation that protects our veterans, enhances our military, and supports our Gold Star Families.
I know how the system works and I can pass legislation that works for all Americans. I have experienced the hardship of living on a centralized government healthcare system.I have the experience of navigating the complexities of our immigration system when my wife Veronica became a naturalized citizen.
I have the experience of serving and fighting in warzones and areas of conflict with no plan for victory from our political leaders. Growing up near the Rio Grande Valley, I’ve experienced first-hand the effects of poor immigrations policy.
As your Senator, I will draw from all these experiences to shape policy and build a government that works for all Americans.
I am a Catholic Christian dedicating myself the principles of my faith daily as a husband, a father, a neighbor, a church volunteer, and a community leader.
My faith teaches me to care for the poor, shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty and to love my neighbor as myself. Our political leaders have sown division in our country for far too long.
As your Senator, I will support focused programs targeted to lift families from poverty, reduce the unhoused, provide healthy food and nutrition options for children, and invest in clean, drinkable water.
And those who disagree with me on the issues, I will treat them with love and respect.
It’s time to bring back kindness, compassion and forgiveness to our country.
The nuclear family is the bedrock of our society.
Sadly, our political class have made it increasingly difficult to start a family and raise children.
As a conservative, I will fight to conserve the nuclear family and the future generations of American families.
As your senator, I will increase the child tax credit to lessen the financial burden of raising children. I will expand and increase adoption services to families who want but are unable to have children. I will pass laws that make it more difficult for corporations to fire their employees and send their jobs overseas.
As your senator, we will rebuild the American family and make the American dream achievable and affordable for all Americans.
Community is extremely important to me. A strong, vibrant community is vital to fabric of our country.
I have dedicated my life as a servant of our country and our local community.
First as a soldier in the US Army, then as an advocate for the most vulnerable veterans here in Virginia, as a board member of the Northern Virginia Veterans Association.
As the Vice President of the Virginia Gateway Lions Club, my family and I worked to improve the eyesight and hearing of low-income families in our neighborhoods.
My wife, my daughters and I volunteer to serve foodbanks, youth ministries and faith formation programs all throughout Virginia.
I promise you that my service as your next United States Senator will be focused on what is best for our communities across the Commonwealth.
I’m PROLIFE. It’s that simple.
I am PROLIFE at stages.
I believe the measure of nation is how it treats its most vulnerable and that’s our unborn and our elderly.
I shudder to think about how future generations will judge on the way so many of our unborn and elderly are so easily discarded.
I will fight to pass legislation that protects as many unborn lives as possible, that increases access to adoption, that ensures children growing up in low-income communities have access to healthy foods and that our elderly can grow old and retire with the dignity and respect they deserve.
Veterans are truly the 1 percent.
These are the men and women who volunteer to put their lives on the line for the whole nation and they deserve our admiration and our respect.
They also deserve the care and the basic necessities that they were promised.
I have been an advocate for veterans across the commonwealth from the moment I left the Army.
I started a tech company focused on rapidly connecting veterans to the transition services that they need most.
I will never turn my back on our veterans because I know first-hand the strength and resilience it takes from an entire military family to support and defend our constitution from enemies around the world.
As your senator, I will never play political games with our veterans, their families, or their rightful benefits.
To all the veterans,
I will stand for you, always, because you’ve always stood for us.
CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS FOR ALL
The Rights enshrined in our Constitution are non-negotiable.
Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to assemble and petition our government apply to everyone regardless of race, creed, gender, or ethnicity.
The Right to bear arms, the Right to unreasonable search, the Right to due process, the Right to be considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law and the Right to vote apply to everyone regardless of race, creed, gender or ethnicity.
These Rights and many more in our constitution are under constant attack by those who would silence their opposition through the force of corporate and government power.
I will work every single day to ensure that Rights bestowed on all citizens remain for all citizens.
A quality education is key to escaping poverty.
Our education system was once the standard that all other countries sought to achieve.
Now, the US is ranked 11th out of the top 79 countries worldwide. We are spending more and we’re getting less.
I support good teachers and the need for high-performing public schools, but the power must always reside with parents.
We need a robust education system with sound principles, free from political agendas and definitely with parental involvement.
We need an education system that focuses on the priorities of the future, in medicine, in technology and in finance, so our children are prepared for the world ahead.
I support school-choice and will work to pass legislation that encourages makes it easier and more affordable for parents to homeschool their children.
Our children are our future and I will work each day ensure that parents have ultimate control over their children’s education.
I will work to stop colleges and universities from price-gouging our youth, saddling them with seemingly insurmountable debt, while providing a substandard education.
I will work to stop the university monopolies and promote trade and skilled apprentice programs to meet the need skills gaps plaguing American small business owners across the nation.
CIVILITY, FORGIVENESS & COMPASSION
We need unity and civility back in our political discourse.
The current political class has turned working people from the same neighborhoods and communities against one another and that’s no way to live.
As Americans, we have much more that unites us than divides us, but the media, large corporations, and politicians all tell us otherwise, because they benefit from our division.
I will restore civility to our politics.
I believe in redemption for one’s mistakes.
No one’s perfect, least of all, me.
I will extend and promote forgiveness, compassion, and love to our fellow neighbor, whether you agree with me on every issue or not.
As your senator, I won’t blame you, the people, for the failings of our politicians, like so many others.
I won’t label you, disparage you, call you names or insult you or your intelligence, because you deserve better.
