Office sought: Oklahoma CD 4-running against incumbent Republican Tom Cole

1. Have you ever served in the US Armed Forces? If so, what were your branch, rank and years of service? Mention any details you might want voters to know.

 No, I have never served. However, I always supported those who did. 

2. Do you have connections with veterans or active-duty service members, including but not limited to family ties?

My close family connections include my father, Army landing at Normandy. 

Older brother Roger, Marine Corps, 2 tours in Vietnam. 

Younger brother Steve, retired officer, Air Force, Desert Storm. 

The important men in my family, representing all 3 branches, and saw military action.

3. What do you consider the most important issue facing veterans and military families?

The most important issues facing veterans/military families are Republicans want to make military care private, closing all military hospitals. My brother Roger came home from Vietnam with a DEATH sentence. He died a slow painful death eaten alive by Agent Orange. Never complained and always proud he served. Anytime a government agency goes private, the cost goes up, and the quality comes down. Just look at Tinker Military Housing, by awful company Balfour Beatty (internet has horror stories) TOXIC MOLD, INSECT INFESTATIONS, WATER LEAKS, BURST PIPES, DISTURBED ASBESTOS TILES, and LONG LISTS FOR REPAIRS. They were also charged with FRAUD, for filing FRAUDULENT INCENTIVE FEES. They pled GUILTY and were fined 65 million for unearned bonuses, for housing maintenance never done. Low level employees took the fall. This company has 50 contracts at military bases. If they will do this to base housing, imagine what they would do at a hospital??? I promised my brother on his death bed, I would keep Veteran Care from going PRIVATE. This is my 4th time running against Cole. I will continue to run against him, until he is gone! 

4. In what ways can you be helpful to Veterans and military families if elected to office? These may of course include policies not specifically directed to those communities. If you are an incumbent, include initiatives you have already undertaken.

1. Keep military care from going private. 

2. Keep base housing safe. 

3. A LIVABLE wage 

4. Reproductive Rights protected 

5. My office will ALWAYS be open
