Cozart's Garland GOP candidate profile emphasizes several policy positions and campaign themes:
- Create Jobs: "As a small business owner I believe that we are the backbone of our local economy, but we need to attract new business and industry into this state. We need to keep our jobs in America and Arkansas, and to do that we have to have to lower our taxes, and have a ready available educated and trained workforce. I will work toward cutting out excess spending and balancing the state budget."
- Education: "The most important economic development tool that we can provide is an educated work force. It starts with equipping the teachers, and getting them committed to providing a quality education. We can personalize education by giving parents the right to choose the school that is best for their child."
- Communication: "I will work with State & Local law enforcement to provide the best tools for them to provide the best security and protection for the public."
Cozart ran for re-election in the 2012 election for Arkansas House of Representatives, District 24. Cozart ran unopposed in the May 22 Republican primary and defeated Jimmie Harmon (D) in the November 6, 2012, general election.
