On the Issues

What is your position on abortion, including whether you think the government should be restricted from funding abortions?

What is your position on the Doris Allen recall, and how will you vote on it on Nov. 28.?

"I will vote yes on recall."

Do you support school vouchers?

"Yes."

Do you support prayer in schools or a moment of silence?

"I support a moment of silence."

Do you support banning welfare funds for teen-age mothers and limiting increases for women who have additional children while on welfare?

Education: Graduate, Nazareth College, Rochester, NY

On the Issues

What is your position on the Doris Allen recall, and how will you vote on it on Nov. 28.?

"I have maintained a neutral position on the recall because I think it is wasteful in terms of money, particularly because Allen is at the end of her term."

What is your position on abortion, including whether you think the government should be restricted from funding abortions?

"As an adoptive parent, I support adoption as an alternative to abortion and I teach and preach sexual responsibility. But I am pro-choice and believe this is a decision that should be made by the physician and patient. I think it discriminates against poor women to forbid government funding of abortions."

Do you support school vouchers?

"I support school choice within the public school system and vouchers, if they stay within the public system."

Do you support prayer in schools or a moment of silence?

"I would support a moment of silence but I don't support teacher-led or administrator-led prayer in schools."

Do you support banning welfare funds for teen-age mothers and limiting increases for women who have additional children while on welfare?

"I support tying welfare to work for able-bodied individuals, but we need to protect the health and welfare of children. I would not support additional welfare funding for additional children, but there may be individual cases where it is appropriate."

What is your position on gun control, including banning semiautomatic assault weapons and Saturday night specials and requiring a waiting period for purchase of firearms?

"I basically believe in the right to bear arms, but I do not see a need for military-style weapons. I believe a waiting period is reasonable."

On the Issues

What is your position on the Doris Allen recall, and how will you vote on it on Nov. 28.?

"I was not active in the recall and I will vote no on the recall. I do not believe in using a recall unless there is a criminal or immoral act involved."

What is your position on abortion, including whether you think the government should be restricted from funding abortions?

"I believe in less government control so I believe the choice should be up to individuals and their families. I do not believe government should fund abortions."

Do you support school vouchers?

"School vouchers might be a way to start educational reform but they will not solve our current educational problems and, if anything, they will put our school system in more of a financial bind."

Do you support prayer in schools or a moment of silence?

"Yes, I support prayer and/or a moment of silence in schools."
