Education Reform and Workforce Readiness
Our children deserve a legislator with first-hand experience who will fight for education reform. I will fight to ensure a high-quality education for every child in Arkansas. I will work to provide our students skills that will offer them the best chance at a great future.
Department of Human Services Reform
The Arkansas Department of Human Services waste, neglect, and bureaucracy must stop. Our most desperate children aren’t getting help fast enough. I will work relentlessly with agency officials, elected officials, and our governor. Together, we will transform DHS into a program that Arkansas can be proud of!

Where I Stand on Other Important Legislative Issues
I have worked since the early 1990s to help defend the unborn by working in a crisis pregnancy center and supporting right-to-life organizations, such as the Arkansas Right to Life, National Right to Life, and Loving Choices Pregnancy Center. I have participated in the March for Life in Little Rock for many years and will continue to work on behalf of the innocent.
I’m a Ronald Reagan Republican when it comes to taxes! Economic growth can only be achieved by keeping taxes low and not burdening our taxpayers with unnecessary taxes.
We are a Constitutional Republic … the people rule!
— that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. (Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863)
“A Constitutional Republic” is a government created and controlled, at least, by the Law of a Constitution. The Constitution of the United States of America was, in Law, a foundation based on the Bible, the Magna Carta and the Declaration of Independence. Those documents recognize man’s sovereignty, the divine nature of man’s creation and man’s divine right to Life, Liberty, the means of acquiring and possessing Property, and the pursuit of happiness. (Wikipedia)
“Many Americans today, just as they did 200 years ago, feel burdened, stifled, and sometimes even oppressed by government that has grown too large, too bureaucratic, too wasteful, too unresponsive, too uncaring about people and their problems. I believe we can embark on a new age of reform in this country and an era of national renewal, an era that will reorder the relationship between citizen and government, that will make government again responsive to people, that will revitalize the values of family, work, and neighborhood and that will restore our private and independent social institutions.” (Ronald Reagan)
We are a nation founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs. We have been a prosperous nation because of our belief and trust in God. To continue the blessings that we have experienced in this country, we must honor God! I will always be on the side of religious freedom and will fight to keep Sharia Law out of Arkansas!!
“Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.” (Ronald Reagan)
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” (Ronald Reagan)
“We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each an all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” (James Madison)
Our United States guarantees the citizens of this country the right to keep and bear arms. I will always fight to keep this right.
“When the law disarms good guys, bad guys rejoice.” (Ted Nugent)
“Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.” (George Washington)
“Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not.” (Thomas Jefferson)
