Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?

Yes. Preschool is the learning ground for 3- and 4-year-olds to learn the basic fundamentals of school. If it is necessary for the state to assist in private preschool I feel it is money well spent.

What is your one big idea?

To mandate stricter laws for sex offenders, especially when the victim is under 5 years old. Also, to set time limits for House and Senate public servants (ie. 2-3 terms and to wait four years to run again).
