Issues and Beliefs
I am Pro-Faith, Pro-Life, Pro-Family, Pro-2nd Amendment, Pro-Business, and Pro-Freedom.
I fully support limited government and low taxes.
Responsible and Representative Government
I believe government should be dictated by the will of the people and not special interest groups or bureaucrats. Few good things happen behind closed doors, which is why I will work to ensure greater transparency in your local government. As a business owner and former Mayor, I know what it takes to run a successful and economically sound operation. If elected, I will work to modernize and streamline operations to maximize efficiency and save taxpayers money.
Lower Tax Burden
You work hard for your money, and you deserve to know how your tax dollars are being spent - and you should be able to trust your local government to spend them wisely. Tarrant County residents and business owners are being taxed out of their homes and properties. One of my biggest goals as County Judge will be to ensure responsible budget management and lower taxes to provide much-needed property tax relief to Tarrant County taxpayers and businesses.
I believe in the Constitution, and I believe in freedom. Freedom is the hallmark of America. Any emergency management authorizations will be used sparingly and with tremendous forethought. I believe all businesses are essential and pledge to never close down any businesses. I will also never close down churches. I will opt for public service announcements and encouragements based on guidance from relevant local health leaders, but will never issue mandates that have the ability to destroy livelihoods.
I am proud to support our local law enforcement leaders and will work to ensure they have the resources and support they need to keep our streets safe. I will continue to support recent county efforts that focus on rehabilitation to decrease repeat offenses.
Promoting high-quality business growth and development is a major part of ensuring Tarrant County's future success. As County Judge, I will work with local leaders to retain current businesses, support small businesses, and attract new business development that enhances our county. I will work hard to help promote high-quality jobs, to keep Tarrant County working.
Guarding the security of our ballot box and guaranteeing the legitimacy of our elections is fundamental to preserving a free society. I will work with our Elections Administrator, the Legislature, and with our District Attorney’s office to make sure election integrity is a high priority in Tarrant County.
Eliminate Taxpayer-Funded Lobbying
Using taxpayer money to lobby for more government spending and higher taxes is wrong. I will work to eliminate taxpayer-funded lobbying in Tarrant County. These dollars are often used to promote policies or ideas that are in direct opposition to the best interests of Tarrant County taxpayers. Your tax dollars should not be used to hire expensive Austin or Washington lobbyists to help push political and bureaucratic pet projects, growing the size of government at every level. I will be a strong advocate for banning this practice in Tarrant County government and will work with our legislators to pursue a statewide ban, as well.
Infrastructure and Roads
Safe and smooth transportation is a critical component in ensuring the success and growth of our county. 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.
