ON THE ISSUES
David has proven that he leads and supports legislation that aligns with the shared conservative values of District 134. He continues to demonstrate fiscal responsibility to balance the budget and keep government working within its means. He will continue to lower taxes and support incentives that make Georgia a great place to live and do business. A proud Republican, David has proven his commitment to support the 2nd Amendment, he will always vote Pro-Life, and he will work to reduce the size and reach of our government.
David has and will continue to champion legislation that lowers the cost of healthcare for Georgia families and our most vulnerable citizens. He has written and passed some of the most robust healthcare policies in our nation, holding pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) accountable for detrimental steering practices, improving transparency and forcing them to lower the cost of prescription drugs. He also supported the Maternal Mortality bill, extending coverage for low-income mothers from two to six months after their children are born in an effort to reduce the most preventable postpartum-related deaths. Serving on the Special Committee On Access to Quality Health Care, David remains committed to leveraging his experience and leadership to address these priorities.
With a deep connection to our local business community, David has our back when it comes to decisions at the state level that will help our local economy endure the challenges of Covid-19 as we recover and thrive. He has worked to create an environment that attracts employers and supports opportunity in our community. In the state house, David has simplified policies for our business owners and moved government out of the way of opportunity across our state. He is a proven champion for manufacturing jobs in District 134 with some of the biggest private employers expanding and thriving here at home. He will keep Georgia the number one state to do business by working with area businesses, keeping regulations and taxes to a minimum and bringing more, higher-paying jobs for our citizens.
Public safety is a basic function of our government, and David is committed to fighting the movement to de-fund our police. As we face an increase in violence, riots, looting and mob-rule throughout our state, David will fight to restore and reinforce law and order here at home, supporting our police officers and keeping our communities safe.
As an accountant and a legislator, David has proven that he is committed to lowering costs, simplifying our tax policy and protecting the integrity of our tax code. Georgia has been the number one place to do business in America for the last eight consecutive years, mainly because of our low taxes. David has helped to pass multiple tax cuts that saved Georgia taxpayers billions of dollars, including cutting income taxes in 2018 for the first time in our state’s history by almost $5 Billion over the next 10 years. He has fought against back-door property tax increases for District 134 and statewide – he will continue that fight.
David has consistently voted to fully fund K-12 education in Georgia, eliminate unnecessary testing and support school choice. He has strongly supported the expansion of technical education and continues to advocate for Gordon State College, Southern Crescent Technical College as well as the University of Georgia – Griffin campus which serves as ground zero for turf grass, food safety, and food product innovation and has become a strong ag and environmental science and research hub in our state.
As a member of the Higher Education Committee, David has helped to fund the design, construction and equipment for higher education. He has also worked in support of Georgia Quickstart and local college programs to close the skills gap to make sure our young people have the preparation employers require of them when they finish school.
As citizens, it’s our responsibility to get involved with the local government and work to improve our community. Please sign up here to stay updated about David’s campaign as he represents your interests in the Georgia State House.
