Welcome to my online campaign headquarters! Please take a few moments to learn more about me, read about my position on important issues facing our state, and volunteer to help our campaign.
Tennesseans are facing the same challenges brought on by over-spending in Washington as residents of the other 49 states. Inflation has driven up the cost of everything from gasoline to groceries. Thankfully, Tennessee is better positioned than most states to meet these challenges. We’ve been named the most financially stable state and the best state for business. The legislature has cut taxes on families and small businesses owners. I’m optimistic our low debt, low taxes, pro-growth business climate, and a healthy Rainy Day Fund will permit Tennesseans to weather the storm.
Violent crime is a threat to everyone in Memphis and Shelby County. I’m working to address this threat by voting to lengthen prison sentences for violent criminals, holding violent juveniles accountable for their actions, and hiring more State Troopers. I was happy to vote for Tennessee’s Truth in Sentencing law.
I have a passion for education. As Chairman of the House Education Administration Committee, I’ve supported over $1.5 billion in increased spending on public schools and numerous teacher pay raises. Today, Tennessee ranks as the fastest-improving state in the country in education.
Thank you for the opportunity to represent you in the Tennessee House of Representatives. I would be honored to have your vote.
