Why are you seeking this office?

I am a Chinese immigrant who grew up under Communist China, came to America for freedom. I have lived in Parker for 15 years with my family. I love Colorado and I want to keep our state free, beautiful and prosperous so people can pursue their American dreams. I will represent my district in a clean, transparent and effective way.

What makes you the best person for the job?

I am highly educated with international business experience. I am passionate believer of the principles of liberty and I am able to articulate what I believe to connect with people from all walks of life. I am that leader and fighter for our liberties because I have been fighting for liberty all my life.

What will your top priority be if elected?

Defend TABOR, limiting government growth to population growth and adjusted inflation. Repeal the gun control laws enacted in 2013. Repeal Common Core and data mining of our children. Keep parents and local control of education.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest, how would you rate the Legislature's performance during the 2014 session? Please explain your answer.

I would give score of 3 out of 10. The legislators pushed through so many bills without allowing for adequate time for committees' discussion and public input. Many of these bills were pushed by special interests. The Legislature failed to repeal the magazine limitation law, but passed bill to adopt Common Core standards.

What two issues deserve more attention in the 2015 session than they received in 2014? Briefly explain why.

Double taxation from both federal and state on senior citizens' Social Security income should deserve more attention. They already paid taxes before they put money into social security. Common Core needs more time for public input and debate. The one size fits all approach and data mining of our children is not good for our country.
