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
2. Should marijuana be legalized for recreational use? N
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* Yes, I support this but with any budget things could change based on the economy. But it would be nice if the budget was actually lower than that to build up a reserve.
6. Should our state constitution be amended to prevent taxpayer funding for elective abortions? Y
7. Should all voters be required to show identification before voting? Y* All polls support this. Currently a voter only has to show ID the first time voting at a new district.
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? U* Not sure about posting online cause that could be costly but would favor mandating it to be available to the public by request.
11. Should Pennsylvania municipalities be permitted to require a vaccine passport? N* I feel very strongly about this!
12. Should the gasoline tax be permanently reduced? N* We need revenue to maintain our roads and bridges. We can't cut funding when the roads are not properly funded now. What I would support is weening the State police off of this funding and moving it to the General fund where it should be.
