Issue positions

On her official website Byron explains her priority issues:[2]

  • Economic Development - "I've gotten funding for workforce training to give our folks the tools they need and I'm focusing on helping to bring new industry to Campbell and Bedford counties."
  • Education - "Our children deserve safe schools that focus on fundamentals like reading, math and science. In addition, I support accountability for schools to ensure no child gets left behind."
  • Health Care - "Patients and their doctors, not bureaucratic bean-counters, should make treatment decisions."
  • Public Safety - "I've worked hard to crack down on crime - especially crime against our children...We must strengthen public safety in our communities so we can deal with the new threats that face our citizens."
  • Taxes - "We don't need tax increases in order to fund important government functions like education, public safety and transportation. I will continue to support funding vital services while working to keep taxes low."
  • Traditional Values - "I've stood up to the liberals and defended our traditional values. From sponsoring legislation cracking down on child pornographers to supporting bills protecting human life and a moment of silence in our schools, I have fought for our values of faith in God, personal integrity and stronger families."
