Sexton states on his website, "I oppose any effort to create a state income tax and any effort to create or raise taxes," and says he general opposes efforts to raise state taxes.
He was active in the effort to defeat a proposal for a state income tax several years ago and repeated his pledge when speaking to a local paper: “It seems that every few years, someone in Nashville attempts to enact a state income tax. I pledge to always work to defeat any proposal to enact a Tennessee state income tax.”
Sexton's platform includes continuing the Tennessee Agricultural Enhancement Program, which provides low-interest loans to qualifying farmers. This is part of a broader plan to provide targeted incentives and capital investment for farmers. He also belongs to the Tennessee Farm Bureau.
Mr Sexton more generally supports economic development that makes Tennessee a target to business, along with education and job training to make the state's work force more attractive to potential employers.
A NRA member, Sexton supports Second Amendment rights. He is also emphatically pro-life.
Sexton is divorced and has two children.
