|Former candidate for|
|Texas House of Representatives, District 129|
Huls' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Free Market Economy
- Excerpt: "I will support a vibrant free market economy where government is not in the business of picking winners and losers. I am determined to repeal the business margins tax and will oppose government corporate handouts and subsidies."
- Excerpt: "I intend to go to Austin to fight for limited government and for a return to a the constitutional role of governance. I will preserve a robust Rainy Day Fund, will support a constitutional limit of spending capped to the growth of population and inflation, and will cut non-essential and duplicative government programs."
Right To Life
- Excerpt: "As your representative, I will work to strengthen the gains that Texas has made in protecting the health of mothers and their unborn children."
Secure Borders & Rule Of Law
- Excerpt: "I believe in the rule of law and will support efforts to increase border security to ensure our homeland security. Where the federal government has faltered, Texas must lead by increasing the role of Texas law enforcement (e.g., Rangers), by adopting advanced technologies, and by conducting targeted operations, so that crime rates decrease and our border is more secure."
Education Excellence & Reform
- Excerpt: " I strongly oppose a one-size-fits-all education system that imposes top-down curricula while taking away local control from parents, teachers, and school boards. The federal government should respect its constitutional responsibility and not intrude into our state’s education system."
