Curriculum and Parental Rights
We deserve to know what’s being taught to our kids, and should have the ability to opt out of controversial lessons. I will work to pass a Parents Bill of Rights to ensure every parent has the right to review their child’s curriculum, have access to copies of medical records, and the ability to visit the school to observe or check-in on their minor children.
Getting Serious about the Homeless Crisis and Criminality
We need to continue offering addiction treatment and transitional housing for those who want help. For those who use illegal camping sites as a base from which to commit crimes – we need to make arrests and convictions. I will vote to restore the rule of law, support first responders, and hold criminals accountable to their actions.
No More Lockdowns
For two years, we have suffocated under an inconsistent and overreacting pandemic response that has affected our children, small businesses, and communities. I will vote for limitations on the governor’s authority to curtail our freedoms.
Kids Over Unions
Like so many parents, I’ve had to juggle online learning for my fifth grader while keeping my home and small business in order. I will stand up to the bureaucrats and unions that have been slow to reopen schools, and make sure every child has the opportunity for in-person learning going forward.
