Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Pubic Schools in Montana are overfunded: Oppose
2. Pubic Schools in Montana are underfunded: Oppose
3. Pubic Schools in Montana are adequately funded: Support
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: Strongly Support
5. Montana should allow public charter schools: Strongly Support
6. Parents should be allowed to home school their children without additional state regulation: Strongly Support
7. The teaching of "Critical Race Theory" (CRT) should be banned in Montana public schools: Strongly Support
8. Comprehensive sex education, beginning as early as kindergarten, should be allowed in public elementary schools: Strongly Oppose* I strongly support parents having a hand in their children's education. It should not be the schools, school districts, or school abords to push CRT or any other agenda that is misshaping children's lives and thought process. The only thing school boards and schools should be teaching is education. Math, science, civics, correct history, financial literacy, reading, and trade classes should become the forefront of our education at this crucial time. Our children are falling behind in their education and given the last two years of lockdowns and face masks, our children are truly suffering. We need educators and board members who truly have the children's needs in their best interest, not to push their own agendas. Montana received a total of $618,093,640.00 in Elementary and Secondary Emergency Relief (ESSER) and Emergency Assistance for Non Public Schools (EANS) over covid. That was a lot of money being poured into our schools while educators and school boards are able to push their agendas while keeping masks on children and parents improperly being able to participate in their children's education. I find it abhorrent that our school boards are funded by the taxpayers and yet they will not listen to the people who pay their salaries and do the right things for children in Montana. If elected I will support parent's right to have a say what is taught to their children and for the transparency from school boards and educators as to what they are teaching our children.
9. Income taxes in Montana are too high: Strongly Support
10. Property taxes in Montana are too high: Strongly Support
11. Corporate taxes in Montana are too high: -
12. The 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows all citizens to own firearms for self-protection: Strongly Support
13. Global warming is a problem requiring increased regulation: Strongly Oppose
14. Environmental regulations in Montana are too stringent: Support
15. Environmental regulations in Montana are NOT stringent enough: Oppose* Speaking from a taxpayer within Missoula County, I believe their is a total misuse of our tax dollars. Mayor Engen and his City Council as well as the County Commissioners, continue to push their special interest agendas at the taxpayers expense. Making building, housing, and rent so unaffordable to the citizens who live here. I was born and raised in Missoula and moved to Salt Lake City after High School. I raised my children there then moved back to Missoula to spend time with my father before his passing. Upon my return, I did not even recognize the Missoula I grew up in. Building all of these apartments and making it harder for builders to build single family homes is adding to one of many problems in Missoula. Watch Engen's Missoula at engensmissoula.com to be more enlightened as to how our corrupt officials are spending the TIF money on the backs of the citizens in Missoula. The homeless issue in Missoula is also a driving force of corruption. It costs $47,000.00 per homeless person per year to keep them here (I was told that by a county worker). Our mayor is spending our tax dollars like Biden and congress are spending our federal tax dollars. No transparency on any front in the political view right now. It needs to stop. Financial transparency to the taxpayers needs to be returned immediately. If elected I will stand for lowering taxes and financial transparency to the citizens.
16. Montanans should not be discriminated against or treated differently because of their vaccine status: Strongly Support* The fraud that has been placed on the citizens of the United States and around the world is unprecedented. Our civil rights have been violated in so many different ways over the last 2 years. Our constitutional rights have been completely invalidated due to the people who have perpetrated these crimes against humanity. What happened to "My Body, My Choice"? It seems that only works when you are speaking about abortion, which I strongly oppose. If elected I will stand up for every one of our constitutional rights which includes the God given right to oppose an unapproved vaccine.
17. Doctor assisted suicide should be legal in Montana: Oppose
18. Abortion should be banned in ALL stages of pregnancy: Strongly Support
19. Abortion should be banned during all stages of pregnancy, with the exceptions for rape and incest: Strongly Support
20. Abortion should be banned only after a heartbeat is detected (around 6 weeks): Strongly Support
21. Abortion should be banned only after the first trimester (12 weeks): Strongly Oppose
22. Abortion should be banned only when a fetus becomes viable outside the womb (20 weeks): Strongly Oppose
23. Abortion should be banned only after the 2nd trimester (28 weeks): Strongly Oppose
24. Abortion should never be banned, not at any stage of pregnancy: Strongly Oppose
25. The Montana Constitution should be amended to ban abortion: Strongly Support
26. Infanticide (infants born alive with physical abnormalities, including infants born as a result of a botched abortion) should be banned in Montana. Strongly Support
27. Companies and individuals should be allowed to opt-out of the abortion related mandates contained in Obamacare: Strongly Support* I am opposed to abortion at any stage of pregnancy unless the pregnancy was due to a rape or incest. Any abortion is taking the life of the child without that child's consent. It is a sin in the eyes of God and I believe that we need to get back to a more spiritual direction in this country to bring more love and hope in our society.
28. Transgender athletes should be allowed to compete against athletes of the opposite sex: Strongly Oppose
29. Doctors should be banned from performing sex-change procedures on minors: Strongly Support
30. Homosexuals and transgender people should be allowed to adopt children: Strongly Oppose
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: Strongly Support
32. Montana’s marriage laws should be changed to reflect the recent legalization of same-sex marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court: Strongly Oppose* The whole push for transgenderism and LGBTQ and all of the other letters, needs to stop. Our children have been bombarded on every front for many years. Children are being assaulted in every aspect of their life. Males should not, under any circumstance, be able to participate with women in sports. We are not made equally in strength, muscle mass, and bone structure. Women will be set up to fail if we continue to allow men to participate in women's sports. There are only two sexes and they are the ones that God made for us. We were made in God's image, not the image that the people who are pushing this new agenda want us to believe. It is an absolutely disgusting agenda and assault on our children from Kindergarten up.
