Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Should education funding be directed to families through a voucher, scholarship, or education savings account so that parents can send their children to the school of their choice, including non-public schools? Y* As a homeschooling family, we pay to fund our children's education as well as support the public school system. No one should be penalized for choosing something other than the public school system for their children's education.
2. Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use? Y* I don't believe the costs of enforcing marijuana prohibition laws are justified. Rather than arresting, charging, and criminalizing users of marijuana, I'd rather those resources go toward protecting our communities from true criminals who are a real and present threat to innocent people.
3. Should the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act be amended to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity,” which would require public schools and other public facilities to open up restrooms and locker rooms to members of the opposite sex? N
4. Should Pennsylvania enter into the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which would include a new carbon tax on electricity producers? N
5. Should increases in state government spending be limited to the rate of inflation plus population growth? Y* I will never vote for a increase in state spending whatsoever. The state budget is bloated as it is and should be slashed.
6. Should our state constitution be amended to prevent taxpayer funding for elective abortions? Y* I am adamantly and unapologetically pro-life.
7. Should all voters be required to show identification before voting? Y* Yes! Identification is required for countless other transactions. Our most sacred civic duty should be protected.
8. Should the state reduce police funding to increase funding for social services? N
9. Should public schools be prohibited from allowing males who identify as females to compete in girls’ sports? Y
10. Should schools have to post curriculum online for review by parents and taxpayers? Y
11. Should Pennsylvania municipalities be permitted to require a vaccine passport? N
12. Should the gasoline tax be permanently reduced? Y
