Issues

Gathering in Noble

In October 2010, Hunt spoke briefly before the Republican Party gathering at Kendall’s restaurant in downtown Noble.[1]

An audience member asked about his stances on abortion and a recent Norman City Council meeting involving a controversial "gay" recognition proclamation. Hunt said he was "100 percent pro-life" and regarding the proclamation issue Hunt said he would have voted against it.[1]

Hunt added that of what he saw of the televised broadcast of the council meeting, "it shows how out of touch (city) government is with the people."[1]

When asked about tax credits, Hunt said he told the State Chamber of Commerce that he thinks that the state needs to do a better job of educating the public about "why we do tax credits."

Hunt also said he was "against transferable tax credits" and will examine each tax credit on a "case by case basis."[1]

When illegal immigration was noted, Hunt said, "If your first act is to come into this country and break the law then I have a real problem with that."[1]
