Issues

FIGHTING COMMON CORE

I believe in local control of our education system and will fight any attempt to install Common Core in our schools. I will make sure our parents and teachers have the final say in what our children’s curriculum involves – not a Washington D.C. Bureaucrat.


 ENFORCING OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS

America is a nation of laws and we must enforce them. I voted to ban Sanctuary Cities and prohibit cash welfare payments to illegal aliens. I oppose any form of amnesty, including in-state college tuition for illegal immigrants.


 CONSERVATIVE VALUES

The family is the bedrock of our society and the foundation upon which our children grow. As an ardent pro-life conservative, I know that life begins and conception and will always be a voice for those without one. I voted to prohibit taxpayer funding of abortion centers and to require a 24-Hour waiting period before abortions can be performed. I voted for the Pastor Protection Act, ensuring that not clergy member or religious organization is forced to violate their beliefs.


 ECONOMY & JOBS

Florida’s economy continues to improve through responsible approaches to Economic Development. I’m committed to creating a business-friendly environment that brings new jobs to North Florida and protects existing institutions.


PROTECTING OUR STATE INSTITUTIONS

Our state institutions are a vital part of our economy that create jobs and support our families. We must fight wasteful spending, but not at the expense of our state employees. That means striking the right balance that protects both the taxpayer and the state workers that serve them.


EDUCATION

An educated workforce is vital to our economy, and I’m proud to have voted for increased education funding and policies that hold teachers accountable. I support education reform that empowers parents and gives students the tools they need to succeed in the classroom.


2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS

There is no more fundamental right than the right to keep and bear arms. I have always stood up for law-abiding gun owners and their rights to defend their homes and families. I voted for Open Carry and oppose any attempt to take away your rights as a firearm owner.


TAXES AND SPENDING

The Federal Government could learn some things about Florida’s balanced budget. In the past 2 years, I’ve voted to cut taxes by over $1 Billion. Your tax dollars belong to you, and I will always look for ways to responsibly reduce the size and scope of government.
