Issues

The challenges Georgia faces can be overcome with the right leadership and a comprehensive plan. Here’s where I stand on our most critical issues.

Tax Reform

Over the last few years there has been a tremendous focus on the state’s budget. The state legislature has continued out of control spending, paying for it with additional fees and taxes, coupled with taxpayer funds through federal stimulus spending. more…

Georgia’s Budget

If annual outlays are limited to keep up with population growth plus inflation, there is effectively no increase in government spending. According to the Georgia Public Policy Foundation, Georgia has been spending at a much faster rate over the last decade. more…

Non-Violent Drug Offenses

Georgia spends more than $1.2 billion on law enforcement, including $242 million in food and medical care for inmates. Of the 54,016 state prisoners in the corrections system (numbers as of FY 2008), 9,376, or 17% . more…

Georgia’s Educational System

Water

Over the last few summers, the citizens of Georgia learned many lessons about the importance of our water resources due to less than average rainfall. At this time, we face an extraordinary situation over the usage of water from Lake Lanier, due to a decision from a Florida court. more…

Second Amendment

As Governor of Georgia, I will veto any legislation that would prohibit, prevent, or impede Georgians from protecting themselves, their families or their property. more…

Marriage

As a Libertarian, I believe that government should only be involved in the legal – not the religious – aspect of marriage: a private contract struck between consenting adults. more…

Sunday Sales

The sale of alcohol on Sunday has widespread support among my fellow Georgians, however, the legislature has failed to pass necessary legislation to allow Sunday sales. Many legislators scoffed at the idea while saying there were bigger issues. more…
