1. Are you a precinct committeeman? If yes, for how long?
2. Why are you running for City Council?
To stop Mayor Gallego and the leftist majority from destroying Phoenix by continuing to enact the same failed policies that have turned major liberal cities from coast to coast into virtual war-zones covered in filth.
3. City Council requires a significant time commitment, usually 2-4 meetings a month, as well as reading prep prior to meetings. How will this fit in with your other commitments?
I've more or less been doing this job for the better part of the last 5 years, and never had any difficulty balancing the demands of the job with my other commitments.
4. What do you believe is the role of the City Council in our community?
Provide for public safety, roads, and other services that citizens cannot provide for themselves.
5. Do you think you have any personal or professional relationships that could become a conflict of interest while serving as a Council member?
6. What is your approach to handling controversial and complicated issues?
Learn everything you can about them, consult with your constituents, and take them head on.
7. What skills and experience do you have that you believe would be beneficial to you as a Council member?
As Sal DiCiccio's former chief of staff, I am the most experienced, knowledgeable candidate Republicans have fielded for any City of Phoenix council seat in a very long time.
8. What previous community involvement have you had in your city or another city?
I have been deeply vested in everything Phoenix for two decades now.
9. Based on what you know about City government, what do you see as top priorities for the City and why?
Hiring more cops, addressing housing challenges, and homelessness.
10. Do you support the defund the police movement? Please explain your response, and describe the role of City Council regarding this issue.
No. I support our police and want to hire more of them.
11. What is your position on anti-discrimination ordinances?
They're mostly used as an excuse to funnel monies to progressive orgs and causes.
12. What is your opinion on the increase in gun violence in our cities, and what do you propose as mitigation?
Hire more cops, enforce the law, and ensure there are real consequences for law breakers. Blaming law-abiding gun owners or inanimate objects for the actions of criminals is ridiculous and counterproductive.
13. What is your opinion on the homelessness crisis? What solutions do you propose?
Put services first. I have a very extensive policy on this issue and encourage people to visit my website to learn more: https://www.samstone.vote/homelessness
