Abortion: I am a 100 percent pro-life, and as your State Senator I will always fight to defend traditional values.
Taxes and Spending: I am the only candidate in this race who has a political record of increasing transparency in government, stopping proposed tax increases, and cutting wasteful spending. As your State Senator, I will continue to fight for lower taxes, less government and fiscal responsibility.
Economic Development: We need to create more jobs in Kentucky with comprehensive tax reform. Our current tax code is not competitive with other states. I support a flat sales tax that exempts food and shelter, which will entice businesses to move to Kentucky and bring jobs. We also need to reduce the unnecessary regulations on small businesses.
Casino Gambling: Kenton County voters should have an opportunity to vote on a constitutional amendment on expanded gaming. I will only support a local option provision that allows citizens of a county to vote to opt in or opt out of expanded gaming.
Pension Reform: Kentucky needs to makes changes in its pension system by changing from a “defined benefit” plan to a “defined contribution” plan, like the private sector. We need to end double dipping and stop the practice by legislators of abusing the system to substantially increase their pensions.
