Increasing your ability to spend grows our local economy and generates state tax revenues. The way you do that is by lowering the tax burden for each and every Tennessean. In the State House, I will make these my priorities:
The tradition of Tennesseans being proud of their work at the end of the day is as strong today as it was 100 years ago. Our people and our work ethic have always made Tennessee an attractive market for job creators. As your State Representative, I will make sure we promote the quality of our hard work and produce sustainable results that provide quality jobs.
As a product of Nashville's public schools and former teacher at Glencliff and Overton High schools, I know the schools in our community very well. Building a better future for Tennessee starts in the classroom and I will fight to guarantee every child in District 53 receives an excellent education.
Let’s make our schools, colleges and universities the centers of our communities and institutions in which we take pride.
One the greatest assets of the 53rd District is its people. From our youth to our hard-working families to our seniors, the safety and security of our personal residences and our neighborhoods are important to us. As a resident of this fine community, I will fight to protect our people and our property.
As a Nashvillian and a new father I can fully understand the difficulties of living within a modest budget. Much like the responsibility I have to my family to make a financial plan and limit our spending to reach our goals, it is the duty of the State Legislature to be an excellent steward of your hard-earned money. My legislative agenda would include:
It’s important that state legislators always understand the difficulties people of our state face in order to reduce the burden on the individual taxpayers. I am against a state income tax, and I will work diligently to identify ways to reduce the tax burdens on all Tennesseans.
