State SenatorAs a third generation Tulsan it is an honor serving you every day as an Oklahoma State Senator. I understand the conservative values we share as Oklahomans. As a small business owner, I am a firm believer in job creating measures based on free market principles. It is a pleasure making our community and state a better place, and I will always stand up for our families and our way of life.
The Economy, Jobs and Spending:
As a business owner, I have seen the damaging effect of government overreach. At a time when families are experiencing the slowest economic recovery in our nation’s history, it is vital that we lower taxes, reduce spending, and attract business to create jobs. I believe in free-market solutions to the challenges facing our communities. I will continue to fight for policies that eliminate waste and ensure our government operates within its means.
Protecting the Unborn:
I am guided by my Christian conservative values and I understand the right to life, as guaranteed in our constitution, should extend to everyone… especially the unborn. Roe V. Wade is an example of the atrocity that occurs when our nation ignores the faith-based values our country was founded upon. I will always be a champion for the right to life movement and will always stand up for the most vulnerable Oklahomans.
The greater Tulsa area is a shinning example of what happens when parents and communities come together for the sake of our children. Strong communities are forged through a good education system, and that starts at home. I believe children of today are the innovators, educators, doctors, engineers, and economy of tomorrow. As such, it is important that we create the world-class schools so future generations of Oklahomans can be successful.
Honoring Our Veterans:
We are great because of the thousands of brave men and women who protect the God-given rights that form the foundation of our country. Freedom, however, comes with a price. For many that is the ultimate sacrifice. From ensuring our veterans have the health care they need, to working with employers to hire our returning heroes, I will always make protecting, honoring, and caring for our veterans a top priority.
Preserving Our Conservative Values:
I understand the importance of preserving our faith, our families and our liberties. I am a devoted Christian who shares traditional family values. I am an active member of Victory Christian Center and a former youth pastor. I believe we must protect life, from conception to natural end, and that traditional marriages and families must be defended. No one will fight harder to protect the conservative values that our families share.
Standing up for Gun Owner’s Rights:
Oklahoma gun owners have no better friend in the legislature than me. The National Rifle Association has given me an A rating for advocating on behalf of Oklahoma gun owners. I understand that gun ownership is a right, and I will always fight against gun control measures.
