Love in God
- Excerpt:"My family and I are dedicated Christians. We attend church in New Braunfels."
Lower Taxes & More Local Control
- Excerpt:"Doug Miller is a strong fiscal conservative. He will vote to lower property taxes and cut reckless government spending. And Doug will fight for more local control because we know how best to educate our children, run our businesses and spend our money - not the government bureaucrats in Austin."
- Excerpt:"As a former law enforcement officer, I understand the problem. It is time to build the fence, lock down the border and enforce the immigration laws."
- Excerpt:"Guns and drugs must be kept a certain distance from public schools, but a child sex offender just off parole can live right next door. This must end. It is time to require sex offenders to live at least 1500 feet from schools and daycare centers and all convicted child molesters must wear GPS tracking devices for the rest of their lives."
