|Former candidate for|
|Oklahoma House of Representatives District 88|
Faulk's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
$10.10 for 88
- Excerpt: "I strongly support a living wage of $10.10 per hour in Oklahoma, with an equally fair wage to tipped employees, either through legislation or by state or local initiative petitions. Paying employees a living wage will lift the working poor out of poverty, save millions in taxpayer money, and will channel money into the economy and increase revenues and profit for businesses."
Share the Wealth
- Excerpt: "I support ending direct and indirect subsidies to Corporate Welfare Queens such as Wal-Mart and McDonalds, and unnecessary tax subsidies to our largest oil and gas companies. I also support a progressive state income tax, so that our wealthiest citizens pay their fair share. All of those savings and additional revenue can be redirected to supporting our local economy and small businesses, and to public education, mental and physical healthcare, and public safety."
Treatment, not Time
- Excerpt: "I support an end to the War on Drugs in Oklahoma, and to the morally reprehensible and financially unsustainable Prison Industrial Complex, and an end to private prisons in Oklahoma. The savings will easily fund a renaissance in the way we treat addiction, job training, and mental health in Oklahoma."
- Excerpt: "It's time to end the prohibition against medical and recreational marijuana, and to legalize industrial hemp as a cash crop for our farmers. The revenue generated would give us a tax revenue base that would help us achieve a world-class educational system, revitalize our farms, rebuild our infrastructure, and effectively treat hard drug and prescription addiction and alcoholism."
- Excerpt: "There has been an all out assault on the rights of people of color, women's rights, LGBTQ rights, immigrants' rights, and the poor. These attacks are unconstitutional, morally wrong, and a waste of time and taxpayers' money. They need to stop. Now. Additionally, Our federal government has greatly overstepped their constitutional authority in the surveillance and harassment of our lawful citizens, and many state and local enforcement agencies have utilized excessive and even deadly force against innocent citizens. I support legislation to assert state rights to put a halt to these unconstitutional practices."
