Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Brown's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Smarter Government.

  • Excerpt: "As conservatives, we must not waiver in our pursuit of a smaller, more efficient government that spends wisely and never takes a penny more than it needs. As our State Representative, I’ll lead for a smarter state government that puts the needs of taxpayers and families first."

Advocate For Better Schools.

  • Excerpt: "The best way to improve Texas’ economy is by providing a better-educated workforce to attract new business and more jobs. That’s why we must work harder for schools of excellence so that our children and grandchildren have the best opportunity for a bright future."

Jobs & Prosperity.

  • Excerpt: "As a businessman and husband trying to provide for my family, I have a vested interest in promoting smarter policies that create an environment of economic opportunity and job growth. Instead of nickel and diming our business community with fees and regulations and other roadblocks to prosperity, I’ll work to cut the red tape that wastes the valuable time of small business owners — time they would rather spend growing their business."

Ethics & Integrity.

  • Excerpt: "As our State Representative, I’ll push for ethics and accounting reforms that make our government more transparent, and I’ll support laws that prohibit elected officials who are convicted of felonies from receiving state pensions."

Safer Borders.

  • Excerpt: "Unfortunately, there are individuals and groups who mean us harm and use our porous border as a means of entry. They are breaking our laws and violating the security of our community, economy, and schools. Texas needs leaders who are willing to take a stand for border security, even if it means being unpopular in Washington DC."
