On healthcare . . .
“Too many of our rural hospitals are closing. People cannot afford the basic medications required to survive. I will make sure we have the funding available to improve our health and I will put it to good use.” “I will also listen to the advice of doctors and health scientists to protect Oklahomans. Whether it be COVID-19, the seasonal flu, or mental health we must have enough medical resources available to help protect the people who live in rural areas, not just those who live in Tulsa and Oklahoma City.”
On the environment . . .
“Everyone deserves clean water to drink and clean air to breathe. I will stand up for Oklahomans and our lands. I will make sure current regulations are being followed before implementing new ones. Our district thrives when our farmers do. I will do all I can to protect our resources for the people, and fight back against large corporations owned by outside interests. I will start by making sure the laws we already have in place to protect our resources and our family farms are being followed.”
Plans for Economy
“Our schools, roads, and bridges have been neglected too long. I will pursue legislation that employs American workers to rebuild our infrastructure, public buildings, and community services. Our schools are falling apart both structurally and financially. I will balance the need for funds with the need for jobs. We will invest where we can and create a plan to help us achieve our ultimate goal of a strong, stable, community with great jobs, great roads, and great schools!”
