1. Please describe your priorities for your term in office and your specific qualifications to effectively address those issues. Priorities: I will stop the enforcement of judicial branch opinions as law in the state of Wisconsin, take action against anyone who damages or removes any veterans' or Civil War memorials, see federal immigration laws and/or similar state laws enforced, and take action against anyone infringing upon the freedom of speech or the right to bear arms we have under both our federal and state constitutions. Qualifications: I have a better understanding of both constitutions than our current AG does.

2. What criminal justice reforms would you support that would decrease recidivism and reduce the prison population? People sitting in our prisons should not sit idly. They should be cleaning roadways and parks, moving large piles of rocks, etc. They should be working at something and learning a trade if willing. If they learn a trade so they have some hope of finding a job after release, that would do more to reduce recidivism than anything else I'm aware of. I don't believe reducing prison populations is one of the functions of an attorney general unless he or she does so because of crime prevention.

3. Would you support marijuana legalization or decriminalization, and how would that affect existing individuals with convictions for marijuana use or sales? I reject the Libertarian arguments for legalizing prostitution and drugs which are currently illegal. If we legalize that gateway drug, we may as well legalize all narcotics because other drugs can also be "used responsibly" as proponents would have us believe. It makes no sense for legislators to promote legalizing marijuana while simultaneously taking actions to stop "epidemic opioid abuse". Nevertheless, as AG I would be duty-bound to enforce any state laws on the matter.

4. Wisconsin has a long tradition of open, transparent government. Do you believe that the tradition should be continued by every branch of government? What will you do to ensure the citizens' right to be informed about their government? Of course. One of my goals as AG is to confirm the best means of communicating with citizens about what my office is up to, and then do so regularly. I can ensure freedom of information by enforcing our Open Records and Meetings Laws; beyond those I think some governmental bodies should also be required to record and publish their meetings for viewing online. But the citizens of Wisconsin must also expect their representatives to keep them informed, and hold them accountable if they don't do so.

1. Please describe your priorities for your term in office and your specific qualifications to effectively address those issues.

1. Working with those in the legislature who supported keeping the office of State Treasurer to have duties restored like the Unclaimed Property Program, Local Government Investment Pool, and others.

2. Having the Budget Stabilization Fund (Rainy Day Fund) placed under the authority of the elected State Treasurer.

3. Being a fiscal watchdog.

As State Chairman of the ballot qualified Constitution Party WI, I have years of executive/leadership experience. Treasurer is an executive post.

2. The Board of Commissioners of Public Lands (BCPL) manages the state's remaining trust lands and trust funds primarily for the benefit of public school libraries. As a member of the BCPL, how will you effectively manage the lands and funds held in trust for Wisconsin's citizens? I believe that the BCPL should issue funds only for public uses, specifically public school libraries as is outlined in the state constitution. The focus should be kept on public school and municipal and public works funding/loans only, not any private purposes as these are public lands in trust.

Limiting BCPL to its original constitutional purpose of public school/municipal funding is the best way for the three board members to effectively manage the lands and funds and prevent overreach.

3. How will you ensure our state government is fiscally responsible?

1) I am a Constitutionalist, not a Democrat or Republican, so I will have no conflict of interest and can freely challenge both major parties without fear of retaliation within their parties or membership dismissal from their parties.

2) Being independent of both parties, if elected I will use this office as a bully pulpit, taking my call for restoring duties and adding duties directly to the people.

3) I will fight corporate welfare/crony capitalism. Public and private should be separate.
