Issues

Campaign themes

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

FISCAL CONSERVATIVE

  • Excerpt:"Government can and must provide critical services, but runaway entitlements, waste, fraud and abuse can be controlled and reduced. Texans deserve a fiscally responsible state government and I will fight for it."

ECONOMIC GROWTH

  • Excerpt:"As a small business owner from Montague County, I will support Texas’ small businesses by reducing regulation, burdens and costs so they can grow and hire more Texans."

FIGHT TAX INCREASES

  • Excerpt:"Texas is constitutionally required to balance its budget each biennium, and I will work to achieve a balanced budget without imposing additional taxes or fees on Texans."

EDUCATION IS A LOCAL ISSUE

  • Excerpt:"I will support efforts to eliminate unfunded mandates of education and increase local control. I will also support efforts to increase competition in our education system by giving parents greater choices."

SUPPORT PROPERTY RIGHTS

  • Excerpt:"The right to own property is a sacred right proscribed to us in the Declaration of Independence. These property rights must be protected at the state level."
