Issues

Campaign themes

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

Creating Jobs & Supporting Businesses

  • "maintaining a fair and efficient civil justice system that keeps the trial lawyers at bay and reduces non-meritorious lawsuits against businesses"
  • "creating incentives for businesses to relocate to or stay in Texas"

Improving Schools for Our Future

Reining in Government

  • Excerpt:"Jason understands that one of the most challenging issues that he will face as a State Representative in the next legislative session is how to reduce and cut government spending. As a Reagan-styled conservative, he believes that reducing the size of government by reducing wasteful and unnecessary spending is the path to a stronger economy and a stronger Texas."
