What is your reason for running? "I want to run for Lt. Gov. because I know I can do an excellent job promoting our state even more than I already have. Example: my travel and tourism website., as well my radio show The Guerrilla Gourmet, where I promoted Oklahoma businesses for free, having to do with food! I think it's very important that the Lt. Gov. travel within the state, vacation with their family within the state and hold meetings at different State parks and invite the press along so people can know and see first-hand how many incredible things there are to do and see in OK!"

Why should Oklahomans vote for you? "I want people to know first off, that I LOVE this state and I'll have fun promoting it! I will be the hardest working Lt. Governor this state has ever seen! I will continue to promote tourism in our state and as Lt. Governor I will have even more visibility because I will have access to the press. By spending time in our state parks either by vacationing or holding meetings, will help bring desperately needed tourism dollars. I want to launch my campaign of "Oklahoma, the state of 4 million smiles" Currently, I am walking across the State of OK. to talk to real Oklahomans to see what they actually want from their Government."

What is your political experience? "No political experience. I am a business owner with two restaurants. Vito's Ristorante has been in operation for 10 years. Sean Cummings Irish Pub has been open for 6 years. Previous to that, I owned Boca Boca Restaurant that was in business for 9 years. Being a business owner gives me a completely different perspective on leadership!"
