It is imperative that Texas secures our border, eliminates sanctuary cities, and puts a stop to the magnets and incentives that embolden illegal immigration.
Economic growth in east Texas is a priority to me. The government doesn't create jobs -- We The People do. We must encourage competitive free enterprise, eliminate frivolous regulations, cut red-tape, and eliminate our state's burdensome business franchise tax to ensure a strong economy and job creation.
The government doesn't have a shortage of our tax-dollars, it has a spending problem. I will fight to reduce the growth of our property taxes and reduce spending across the board.
RIGHT TO LIFE:
I am 100% pro-life and believe that life must be protected from conception to natural death.
Our right to bear arms is one of the most important rights we hold as Americans. I oppose all forms of gun control and regulations that put law abiding citizens in danger and limit our ability to defend our families and loved ones.
RELIGIOUS LIBERTY & VALUES:
Our Judeo-Christian values are under assault in America. All Texans deserve the ability to freely practice their religious beliefs without fear of retaliation. Additionally, women and school children in the state of Texas deserve privacy and decency when using restroom facilities.
Improving our education system and the results delivered to families and their children is a priority to me. I support local control and competition in our public schools to ensure students receive the best education possible. School districts deserve more flexibility to reward passionate, hard-working teachers. Career and Technical Education must be expanded and emphasized.
