Sexton was active in the effort to defeat a proposal for a state income tax several years ago and repeated his pledge when speaking to a local paper: “It seems that every few years, someone in Nashville attempts to enact a state income tax. I pledge to always work to defeat any proposal to enact a Tennessee state income tax.”
Sexton's platform included continuing the Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program, which provides low-interest loans to qualifying farmers. This is part of a broader plan to provide targeted incentives and capital investment for farmers. He also belongs to the Tennessee Farm Bureau.
Mr. Sexton more generally supported economic development that makes Tennessee a target to business, along with education and job training to make the state's work force more attractive to potential employers.
