    I strongly oppose the perversion of marriage to include homosexuality. Everyone is equal in this country and no one should get extra points or go to the head of the line because of their gender or skin color.

    Narrowing the diversity and inclusion gap in the community and workplace for individuals with disabilities is a priority. Individuals with disabilities often face obstacles when attempting to return to the workforce. Additionally, many disabled citizens are faced with the challenge of cost-effective support by community based services.

    Disability benefits are often a fraction of the salary of previous wage earners, and individuals may face a reduction in disability benefits when returning to work. Return to work incentives, federal contracting opportunities, and entrepreneurship will help increase wealth and the quality of life for disabled citizens.

    Men and women should receive equal pay for equal jobs. The fact that women in general receive 79% of male salaries, and women of color receive even less, is unacceptable. This must be changed. Because same-sex marriage is a legal entity, individuals in same-sex marriage should have the same legal and social benefits as partner in traditional marriage.

    I am for absolute rights for all people who are legally in the United State and whose views do not cause harm to others. If someone has sexual preferences that are against someones moral beliefs, they should still be able to have the same liberties and benefits. With the public restroom issue, where the majority feel uneasy, perhaps additional neutral restrooms need to be provided in the future.
