I believe in positive changes that will make a difference in our district. I have proposals that will keep Oklahoma school funds in the education coffers to fund classrooms, support staff, provide safety and security, and pay our teachers a living wage. (where they belong). Preventing educational funds from being shifted to other state agencies is a top priority for me. As District 34 representative I will work diligently to ensure funding for education stays in our state education system. I will work to maximize recognition for educators from K-12, Colleges and Technical Schools.
I will propose policies and support legislation that advance our economic growth by diversifying our economic base. I will work with other community leaders and stakeholders to exploit our positives to bring businesses and industries to our District. I will work with our city and county leaders and private partners to build a strong infrastructure that will entice businesses and companies to our District.
My Pro-Life stance is multifaceted. I will push legislation that protects ALL life from conception to natural death. I support parental rights as the foundation to help create stronger Oklahoma families. Stronger families create stronger communities and a stronger society. I will work to ensure public safety, justice for victims of crimes and those battling human trafficking. I will work to protect constitutional conservative values, support Oklahoma’s veterans, active military personnel and first responders and promote traditional family values.
