My ambition is to become a public servant! I feel that
public service is one of the highest honors in life! I want to run
informative and clean campaign!
We need to fine tune House Bill 1187. I feel that
test scores are still low, and high school drop out is on the

Report card for 2001 was rated as a B+. I feel that our School

We have a surplus, but we are sacrificing certain programs to cut
budget! We must come up with new and fresh ideas to revive
economy, i.e. boost tourism, cut taxes, refund checks!
I feel that flag issue should have been voted on by the

understand why some citizens wanted to keep the flag the way it
this issue should have been decided by our voters of Georgia!
The General Assembly can do more for health care for the
citizens of Georgia. There was a good start to this health care

House Bill 1021 was recently passed, and this bill states
that sand can be dredged from coastal harbors and that sand can be
on adjacent beaches. Let's use this sand! We need to keep tourism
strong for the economy of Georgia.
The State of Georgia should not spend any more funds than it
needs to maintain its functions! We should not cut any educational
program during this budget cut situation. A program that will be
the foreign language programs in the lower grades. This program
proven that students, who study foreign languages in the lower

that, no matter how many laws we are passed to help family values,

highways throughout Georgia. We need those four lane highways.
highways will take travel less difficult, and could attract
