I am a pro-life Christian who will stand up for the unborn and fight for our Christian values. These values are under attack today by those who want to control what we read on social media and what our children are taught in school. As a father of two, there is nothing that has made me prouder than watching Whitney and Harrison grow in Christ and accept Him as their Lord and Savior.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.
Weekends are for family and there is nothing better than a cold morning hunt with Harrison. I am a proud lifetime member of the NRA and will fight for all of our 2nd Amendment rights. I will fight the liberal Democrats who work every day to chip away at those rights as they work toward their goal to take away our guns and trample the Constitution.
I was a proud and public supporter of Donald Trump for President on day one and I am even more proud of him today. In my house, we know that Donald Trump has been the greatest President of our lifetime. When the Trump campaign called in 2016, I was happy to go to work and help organize his rally at the Madison City Stadium and when over 20,000 showed up I knew that he was truly leading a movement. I am running for Congress because that movement must continue – and JOB ONE in making that happen is taking Conservative control of the House of Representatives.
Raising taxes is not an option. The American people are taxed enough and deserve leaders that will be good stewards of their money. Cutting wasteful spending and downsizing government must be a top priority. In just a few weeks on the job, Biden and his team have added trillions of dollars to our national debt. This must stop.
As Chairman of the Madison County Commission, I am proud to show that government really can do better. Doing more with less, balancing our budget, and demanding accountability is exactly what I will do in Washington. We cannot leave our children and grandchildren choked with debt run up by liberal democrats and out of control bureaucrats.
Anyone saying “defund the police” insults those men and women that put their lives on the line to protect us every single day. I have been there to help bury fallen officers who have died in the line of duty and I will always have the backs of our law enforcement officers.
When I became Commission Chairman the starting pay for our Sherriff’s deputies was the lowest in our area. It wasn’t enough to support a family. I worked to change that and now the salaries for our Sherriff’s department match those at other departments. My family and I will continue to stand with law enforcement and make sure they have the support and equipment to protect our families.
Protecting our borders is a core responsibility of our government. We must do this and send a strong message to those that are now flooding across those borders with no leadership from Joe Biden. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in Congress have already voted to give amnesty to over two million more illegal immigrants just this year. That is why you see hundreds of thousands trying to cross our borders today with more on the way. This must stop.
I fully support building the wall, sending illegals back to their country of origin, and fully enforcing the law on those that are in our country illegally. Illegal immigrants swamp our schools, overcrowd our prisons, take advantage of our healthcare, and stretch our law enforcement thin. Enough is enough. I will carry on President Trump’s agenda and his legacy to fight against illegal immigration and fulfill our Constitutional duty to protect our borders.
The response to Covid showed us that there is no good answer once it spreads. Economists estimate Covid cost the Unites States $16 trillion dollar with $6 trillion of that being spent by Congress. And this pandemic is still affecting our families and economy with continued disruptions in the global supply chain causing shortages of many goods and materials.
The only way to address the next pandemic is before it begins. We must invest more in basic research and the vaccine development to prepare for the next outbreak. Covid caught us unprepared but the next one cannot. That is why I supported investing $3M of the Covid funding sent to Madison County to support work being done at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Research Park. HudsonAlpha and similar labs across the country can develop these vaccines and prepare our nation if we provide the proper funding. National Security is my number one priority in Washington and being ready for the next pandemic is a key part of that security.
