God

  • "Should be our guide in making decisions for the welfare of our community and government."

Legislative Proposal

  • "Voters within a school district should have the right to vote on whether or not to allow prayer in their public schools."

Public Education

  • "Public schools should have less emphasis on testing and more of a focus on education and discipline."

Legislative Proposals

  • "Public school employees should have the same healthcare benefits as state employees."
  • "Members on the State Board of Education should be required to have at least 20 years of teaching experience."

Immigration

  • "Tony is not against people wanting to work, pay taxes, learn English, and go through the legal process to be Americans, but he cannot support foreigners who come into our country to take advantage of our programs and disrespect our values."
