LISA LANE GIOIA was born and raised in the Detroit metro area, and graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a BA in Economics and Japanese. After 11 years of study and work in Japan, Lisa returned to Michigan in 2002 and founded her own translation business. As a small business owner, Lisa has first-hand knowledge of the stultifying effects of taxes and regulations, and is committed to working to reduce the size of government and ensure personal freedoms.
“The federal government should be reduced to the minimum level necessary: by eliminating agencies and programs that give rise to waste and corruption, less money will be taken from us and the more prosperous the economy will become for all. Abolish the current tax system and replace it with a national sales tax or flat tax which will be more equitable.”
“A person may immigrate to the U.S. and contribute to our economy and diversity, PROVIDED that they have passed the appropriate security checks and have registered to pay taxes. We cannot afford to recklessly hand-out benefits to those who wish to take advantage of our generosity - nor can we afford to prohibit the entry of hard-working peoples whose skills definitely benefit our economy.”
“Our second amendment right to bear arms is not to be violated. However, the mass shootings that have become commonplace today should be an impetus for serious discussions relating to other issues, such as how we can best help the mentally ill in our society, rather than putting a ban or even restrictions on all or certain firearms and ammunition which would merely exacerbate violence.”
