I believe in strong borders. Without them we lose our national identity. We are a nation of laws and those laws must be upheld in order to protect our citizens.
Just like a home budget, we should not spend more than we bring in. Limiting the growth of the budget to the rate of inflation and population is a good idea. If a budget exceeds this limit, to pass it should require a 3/4ths supermajority, in a recorded vote from both Houses, and approval from Governor’s office.
I believe that life begins at conception and every human being deserves the chance to live. We are all created in God's image and therefore we have intrinsic value and dignity.
Texans should be secure knowing that their land and their homes can’t be unlawfully seized or taken from them. I will always vote to strengthen citizen protections against eminent domain abuse.
High Speed Rail Threats
I oppose the high speed rail project that threatens property owners in Grimes County. As your next State Representative for House District 13, I will work tirelessly to prevent eminent domain abuse against private property owners. I will author and/or support legislation that gives property owners more rights including just compensation. I will be working alongside Representatives and Senators in rural Texas to defend our constituents' property rights. This is Texas! Our land means everything to us. I am a woman of my word and I will work hard to ensure you have the tools you need to protect what is rightfully yours.
Property Tax Reform
Your home is under assault from these out of control property taxes. I want to cap the growth of property taxes, and then cut them through spending cuts and cutting out all the waste from government budgets.
Rural Community Values
District 13 is made up of a diverse, rural community and our needs and values are often different than our urban counterparts. I will work hard to represent the needs and interests of this rural district in Austin.
I believe every American should have the right to keep and bear arms, as guaranteed in the United States Constitution.
Citizens should know about basic conflicts of interest from legislators. If a legislator owns a business that has a state contract, that should be disclosed, and we should outlaw taxpayer-funded lobbyists
