What ideas do you have to better the lives of Oklahoma’s children? 

I think we need to look at better judicial reforms for juveniles and programs that are funded to help get them back on track.

What have you done to support children prior to this election? 

I was a big brother with Big Brothers and Sisters. Worked on policies over the last 3 years to improve the health and safety of Oklahoma’s children like HB1124 that I was the author and ran in the Senate. I have a 100% rating with OICA for my voting record.

What will you do to support families in your new role, if elected? 

I will continue to champion legislation that improves the health and safety of Oklahoma’s children.

What ideas do you have to better the lives of Oklahoma’s children?

We need to adequately fund Public Education and Healthcare including Mental and Substance Abuse.

What have you done to support children prior to this election?

I helped children for 33 years by providing Emergency Services as a Paramedic and Firefighter.

What will you do to support families in your new role, if elected? 

I will support accepting federal funds to expand access to health care, stopping wasteful efforts to overhaul safety net programs and reversing Medicaid work requirements. People don’t work when they are sick or hurt therefore losing health care coverage. I would also support broad-based tax credits like EITC and Sales Tax Relief Credit.
