Issues

Campaign themes

Pitchford's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Public Corruption

  • Excerpt:"I support the Texas Public Officials Accountability Act. This act will require mandatory minimum prison sentences for public officials and government bureaucrats who used the power of their positions for personal financial gain by defrauding the taxpayers."

Education

  • Excerpt:"Many citizens are concerned that their children are not receiving an appropriate education in public schools. I support the idea of charter schools and vouchers for private schools or home schooling for those individuals who believe the public school system has failed them and their children."

No New Taxes

  • Excerpt:"I will not support any new taxes without additional accountability. I believe if the government were “right sized” there would be no need for any additional taxes."
