I’m a financial executive, pension fund and private equity consultant, veteran, and a fiscally conservative moderate who believes in common sense policies. I believe that legal immigration, supported by secure and safe borders, protects our workers and families and positively contributes to our society. The recent push for Socialism is misguided and even dangerous because it takes away personal responsibility and accountability. Socialism has failed in every country where it was implemented and resulted in excessive government control. Civil discourse in politics and freedom of thought are vital to a democratic society. I strongly believe that more needs to be done to combat bigotry and prejudice, especially anti-Semitism, in Congress, in our schools, on college campuses, and in our community as a whole.
