Issues

Campaign themes

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

Accountability from our Elected Officials

  • Excerpt:"Jon believes that legislators should be guided by values of faith, family, and freedom and be accountable to the voters who grant the honor to represent them. Jon has defeated Democrats and the Austin status quo in the past and will fight even harder as our next State Representative."

State Spending

  • Excerpt:"Jon will fight for greater transparency and line item specificity in state budgets. He believes taxpayers deserve to see exactly where their money is going."

Taxes

  • Excerpt:"Jon will work to undue or lessen the impact of the business franchise tax and continue to fight liberal efforts to implement a state income tax in Texas. Only two states in the nation rely more on property taxes than Texas does."

Growing the Texas Economy

  • Excerpt:"Jon knows that private sector, not the government, will turn our economy around. To foster the right environment for recovery, government regulations and taxes must yield to the needs of entrepreneurs who drive our economy forward. We must continue to fight frivolous lawsuits that impede growth in our economy."
