Sarah comes from a conservative background and represents the values of Texans in 14th District.
Traditional families are the building blocks of society. An intact family consisting of one husband and one wife is the best environment for children to learn moral values. When the rights of the unborn are routinely denied and offending Christian values and Churches is considered normal, we must act. The traditional family should be upheld and honored in law as the most important institution in society.
Toll roads are a symptom of mismanaged money. Gas taxes meant for roadways are used for parks and pedestrian walkways and other non-road projects. Texas legislators allow excess tolls to be charged and these funds are diverted into regional transportation slush funds not related to the toll road. These tolls allow politicians to increase revenue without raising taxes. We should fix our roads and remove the tolls across the state.
Budget surpluses should be returned back to the people in the form of tax cuts. A surplus indicates that government over-collected taxes. Tax cuts force legislators to prioritize spending by eliminating waste. The state wastes a great deal of funds every year, and our state budget could be cut by 10% without citizens noticing a change. Legislators must return government back to it’s constitutionally limited role.
Gun control harms poor Americans who live in crime-infested areas the most. The left-wing rich have guards, gates, and plenty of police. The left tries to chip away at the 2nd amendment by banning guns in little increments over time, gradually chipping away at your rights. Their goal is to hollow out the second amendment and eventually eliminate it. We should remain vigilant and protect the second amendment and instead, expand your gun rights.
Border security is an urgent priority. Unchecked immigration is a security concern and forces Texans to unfairly compete with illegal workers for jobs. I am in favor of the recent bill that prevents liberal cities from harboring fugitives from immigration law, which was recently signed by Governor Abbott. Left-wing cities are a magnet for illegal immigrants and encourage illegals to cross the border. Texas should continue to pass laws that prioritize and protect the workers and families of Texas.
Property tax reform will provide tax relief to homeowners and businesses. Many families and businesses are seeing high increases in their property tax bills. The Senate passed legislation that would have allowed local taxpayers a vote on city and county tax increases of 4% or more but it was blocked by the House. We need more conservatives in the House to pass property tax reform to stop tax hikes, and get property taxes under control.
