My goal in running for the House is simple. I want to be the voice of the North Dakotan taxpayers and tell the Capitol to rein in the massive spending problem we are facing, which is breaking the backs of its citizens. I want to be the voice seeking to expand, not constrict our freedoms. I want to be the voice of a third of my generation, who, through the terrible practice of abortion, never had the chance to speak for themselves. I am blessed to have this opportunity that they didn’t have to be available to this district to make the sacrifices necessary to dedicate not only of my time and resources but also a massive cut to my regular income during upcoming campaigning and legislative assembly. I’m willing to do this, not for any personal gain, but in the name of defending this state and its citizens. And it will be hard work, but as we know, and like my father used to say, “Hard work is never easy,” and I genuinely believe it will be worth it.
