21 Do you support or oppose sustainable development as defined in U.N. Agenda 21? Why?  
  No this is an evil Marxist plan to control us and remove our Constitutional rights. This is the biggest UN scam since the Iraq "oil for food" program. This insidious agenda has been put into our local government to condition us to accept lose of private property rights for the greater planetary good.
22 If elected, what will your top three legislative priorities be?  
  Cut the spending, balance the budget and stop implementing job killing regulations on our businesses. Provide a predictably limited Federal influence on our businesses to free them up to hire more tax paying employees. Taxes especially corporate taxes need to be slashed to encourage more businesses to relocate the good old US of A.
