Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Drown's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Public Education / Common Core

  • Excerpt: " I am in favor of removing unnecessary intrusion by the federal government in implementing unproven, costly, and ineffective programs into our State’s public school system. My focus will be to give control back to local leaders, school administrators, teachers, and parents. This will allow school districts in Arkansas to prioritize educational needs at a local level with the support of the Arkansas Legislature."

Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "I fully support the right to keep and bear arms and would strongly oppose any legislation that places an undue burden on an individual who lawfully owns guns and ammunition. Operating globally as a Green Beret, I fully appreciated why the Founding Fathers left us with the constitutional right to keep and bear Arms."

Landowners Rights

  • Excerpt: " Criminal Trespassing has become commonplace in the State of Arkansas. The laws that are currently on the books are of no deterrent for those who knowingly violate the law; farmers, hunters, and landowners alike are fed up! I strongly favor revisiting our current laws and finding a solution that will deter these violations in the future."

Economic Growth

  • Excerpt: " Agriculture is the lifeblood of District 68, but we must diversify in order to ensure that our communities survive an evolving economic environment. As a small business owner, I am for pursuing legislation that lowers the regulatory and tax burdens faced by small businesses and using that same model to encourage investment by large corporations in our area and state."

Abortion

  • Excerpt: "I believe life begins at conception. I will support any legislation that protects the life of the unborn child."
