Pro God, Pro-Christian, Pro-Faith, Pro-Life, Pro-Family.
I am Pro-Faith; I am a Christian, but I support everyone’s freedom to worship according to their own beliefs. I’m opposed to groups who would try to prevent an American’s right to worship as they like and suppress religious expression.
2 Chronicles 7:14 and my people, who bear my name, humble themselves, pray and seek my face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.
I am Pro-Life; I believe that babies are a gift from God and are entitled to live.
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
Ephesians 5:31 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.
1 Corinthians 7: 2 But because of immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband.
PARENTAL SUPERVISION IN EDUCATION
Parents have the right to determine what is taught in the Texas public school system. The Texas legislature must ban CRT in our public school system. Schools should teach the basics and not social issues. I’m opposed to exposing school children, especially elementary and preschool-age children, to books and materials that include sexually explicit pictures and subject matter, including material about gender modification.
I am for Improved education; Schools should teach basics like reading, writing, arithmetic, science, civics, and history. Our children should be taught history, not hate. Social and sexual issues should be taught at home. Parents should have a say in what the students are taught instead of bureaucrats.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
We are blessed to have many excellent schools, but we can improve. I’m for more local control of our school districts and will lead efforts to ensure tax dollars make it directly to the classroom and teachers.
I’m for lowering the high-stakes, minimum standards of the STAAR exams for students. Teachers should be allowed to teach their subjects and not be forced to teach to pass a test. I support our Texas teachers, and I’m for an increase in the state’s contribution rates at the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) and support giving our retired teachers the thirteenth check.
LOWER GAS PRICE
Pro Lower Gas Prices.
We must ease the crippling restriction on oil and gas to help Texas families weather the astronomical inflation crisis. We should finish building the Keystone XL pipeline to allow for a better supply of oil!
The oil and gas industry is critical to the success of our State and Nation. The industry has been hit hard in recent years but I will always work to help the oil and gas industry and stand firm against radical policies that would undermine it.
I’m for energy independence and a secure electrical grid; too many people were affected by the recent ice storms and heat waves. I support better oversite of the state’s electrical grid to ensure that we never have that type of failure again.
Pro Improved Infrastructure.
We should improve our roads and highways to be safer and less congested. I am for better Infrastructure and Roads; Safe and smooth transportation is a critical component in ensuring the success and growth of our country. I will ensure our infrastructure and roads are well-maintained while working toward the most cost-efficient solutions. High quality should not be synonymous with high costs. I will always strive for the best solution for the lowest possible cost. Medians and curbs should be marked and lighted better so as to be seen better in the dark and bad weather.
PRO FREEDOM AND LIBERTY
I am Pro-2nd Amendment; I believe in the constitutional right to own and carry firearms except for criminals and those judged to be incompetent to do so.
I support the NRA and fully support our right to keep and bear arms. I will always be on the side of gun owners and will support their constitutional rights.
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
I am Pro-Liberty; I believe that the government should not be allowed to interfere in the right to own and operate a business. I am opposed to mandates and shutdowns.
I am for limited government; the government should stick to things that the government should be doing, like building and repairing roads, protecting our citizens from crime, and enforcing illegal activity at the U.S. Borders.
Small businesses are suffering now, more than ever. The Texas legislature should lift regulations on small business owners and reduce taxes on Texas families. Texas can’t afford to wait.
Pro Police, Fire, and First Responders.
Pro Training for Police Officers.
I am in support of Public Safety; I support local law enforcement leaders and first responders and will work to ensure they have the resources and support they need to keep our streets safe. I will continue to support efforts that focus on rehabilitation to decrease repeat offenses. I’m opposed to any effort to De-fund the police or any other law enforcement agency. I support providing enhanced training for law enforcement so that officers are prepared to perform their duties more effectively, but with fair and equal treatment to all citizens.
Proverbs 18: 10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.
I am for better prevention of cyber fraud. The government frequently falls behind in utilizing advancements in technology and security. Sensing a looming disaster, I support sweeping cyber security laws that will help keep your private information stored with the state safe from cyber-attacks. I support efforts to protect us from scams and spoofs. Violators should be prosecuted and punished to the full extent of the law. Additionally, sexual predators should be pursued and prosecuted.
