|Texas House of Representatives, District 72|
Thomason's Facebook page highlighted the following themes:
Constitutionally Limited Government
- Excerpt: "Shannon will stand firm in filing and supporting legislation that blocks, nullifies, or outright bans the imposition of federal laws that trample the rights of Texans and will be an unwavering voice in the legislature to ensure that our state government doesn’t do the same."
- Excerpt: "Shannon is a firm believer in the concept of “citizen lawmakers” as opposed to “professional politicians”. He supports term limits for ALL elected officials and believes in giving citizens the right of initiative, referendum, and recall."
- Excerpt: ."..Shannon supports replacing property taxes with an end-user consumption (sales) tax."
- Excerpt: "Shannon believes that the legislature needs a huge dose of common sense; namely that the legislature should be spending OUR money on what WE need first, not what the legislators (or lobbyists) want. Shannon also firmly believes that the state’s “Rainy Day Fund” should be left alone and only be used for emergencies as it was originally intended."
