WORKING TOGETHER WE CAN ACHIEVE OUR GOALS …
As a member of the House Education Committee I have fought against educational standards being dictated to our schools from Washington, D.C. We as parents and citizens in DeSoto County know better how to work with our local school officials to create high standards and challenging curriculum for our students. I believe we should offer every child the best education possible and that parents are best equipped to make those decisions.
I believe that people, not government, know best how to spend their own money. When people keep more of their hard-earned money, jobs and economic growth will flourish in the free market system.
I will continue to support the reduction of the tax burden on our citizens. Our tax burden is too high, our tax code is too complicated, and our tax system is inefficient. I believe the reduction of taxes to empower taxpayers, to create a more competitive environment for job creation, to incentivize work, entrepreneurship, and investment, and to prevent the excessive growth of government.
I support an overhaul of our state and federal tax codes to address the problems of the current systems, to stimulate economic growth and to establish a firm, fair and equitable foundation for collecting revenues to pay for essential government services.
Parents’ Bill of Rights.
I support a Parents’ Bill of Rights to make clear that the responsibility for our children’s upbringing, education and care first and foremost lies with parents. The interests of children are best served when parents are free to make those decisions without government interference in their lives.
I believe government that governs best should be of the people, by the people, and for the people. Government must be open in proceedings and accountable for the use of tax dollars.
I believe government must be transparent, efficient, and always mindful that the funds being spent are the taxpayers’ dollars, NOT the government’s money. Government can be more efficient by always seeking solutions to consolidate services in ways that provide more efficiency and value for taxpayers, as well as using new technology to make government activities and services more accessible.
We support sunshine policies, government reorganization, and reforms to meet the stated goals.
Defend Our Constitution.
As a firearms enthusiast, a Federal Firearms Licensed dealer, and strict constructionist when it comes to our Constitution, I work hard to protect our guaranteed freedoms and liberty to live free of federal government over-reach into every aspect of our lives.
Keep Olive Branch Safe.
I have fought for more resources for public safety and law enforcement. We need to keep our community safe and as crime-free as possible.
