Why are you running for office? *
I'm running for office to represent" we the people", change the status and quad pro quo in Annapolis and Baltimore. I am also running for office for Allah, my family, and country. I'm not running for office to be a "seat warmer", personal, financial, or political gain, but to represent the people as representative government is supposed to be.
Who do you consider your political role model, and why? *
My political roles are Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Huey P. Newton, Fred Hampton, Medgar Evers, Sidney Poitier, Abraham Lincoln, Fredrick Douglas, Thomas Jefferson, Cicely Tyson, Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Maya Angelou, Thomas Jefferson because they were and are political giants in their own right.

My top priorities in office will be putting the family unit back together and crime because both go hand and hand.

What are the three biggest issues facing Maryland? *
Crime, covid-19, and education.
What is your position on life issues? (abortion, assisted suicide) *
I'm against abortion and assisted suicide.
What is your position on taxes and spending? *
Lower taxes equal a better economy, higher taxes equals a stagnation of the economy. With regards to spending, I don't believe our elected officials should just have a blank check to spend in a frivolous manner, but be responsible as they would for their own households.
What is your position on gun rights? *
I agree with the second amendment.

What is your position on the current three-tiered system for the sale and distribution of alcohol? *
If it's not broke, don't break it to have to go back and fix it.
What is your position on land use, growth, and development? *
I'm in favor of land use, growth, and development if it benefits the people.
What is your position on crime and public safety? *
I think Baltimore state and local elected representatives have dropped the ball when it comes to crime and public safety. I think the death penalty needs to be reinstated in Maryland.
What is your position on county tax caps? *
For candidates for the General Assembly: Legislators can receive $101 per day for lodging and $47 per day for meals during the 90-day General Assembly session. If elected, do you plan to accept these benefits? Why or why not?
At this moment I'm undecided.
