What I Believe

1. I believe the people of our district are entitled to an elected leader who will tell them the truth, even if it’s not always in the leader’s best interest, and even if it’s not what the people always want to hear.  As your representative, I will tell you the truth… about how I voted and why I voted that way, about how I intend to approach issues, about what you can expect from me.  And I always will honor my word to you.

2. I believe the people of our district are entitled to smaller, more efficient government.  If you elect me, I will work to eliminate unnecessary regulations that burden our businesses and keep us from reaching our full potential.

3. I believe in promoting a culture of life that respects all persons, from the moment of conception until the moment of natural death.

4. I believe in keeping our tax burden low.

5. I believe in maintaining our right to keep and bear arms, and, if elected, I will fight back against any attempt by the federal government to curtail that right.

6. I believe that our district does not receive its fair share of funding for roads.  If you elect me, I will work with Governor Bentley and the Department of Transportation to ensure that our district receives all of the transportation funding to which it is entitled.

7. I believe that no one group or political party has all of the right answers for every issue.  If elected, I will listen to all ideas and all points of view, and I will make up my mind and cast my vote based on what’s best for the people I represent, the people of District 73.

8. I believe that education is key to a number of issues: economic development, well-paying jobs, and an informed and responsible citizenry.  If elected, I will not accept the status quo in education but, instead, will look for new ideas and new solutions that will make Alabama first in the nation when it comes to education innovation and the delivery of a high-quality education to our children.
