I am in favor of property crime reduction policies that adequately punish violent crime – No more “Catch and release”. I'd like to reduce jail overcrowding by making sure those that have committed violent or sexual crimes stay in jail and most everyone else is well supervised by a robust probation and parole staff.
I will craft and support policies that go after the drug problem in Montana, whether it is the opioid crises or meth epidemic. Drug users should be treated and drug dealers should spend time behind bars.
I am pro-business and support policies that encourage higher wage growth so that people do not have to leave Great Falls to find higher paying jobs.
I fully support the 2nd Amendment and helped pass bills to solidify your rights.
I won’t support a sales tax.
Decreasing property and income taxes
I believe we need to develop a better mental health system infrastructure
Natural Resource Development
I support the responsible development of our natural resources to provide money for schools and economic development. Even as commodity prices have fallen, we could support pipelines to increase the price we get for our exported products. Property like pipelines are also taxed and contribute to Montana's tax base, reducing pressure on home property tax payers.
