Good ideas don’t have party affiliations. As often as possible I will reach across the aisle and work to support legislation that will positively affect the citizens of North Alabama, regardless of who sponsors the bill.
I will work to build personal relationships with my Republican colleagues. The most effective policy outcomes happen when there is bipartisan support. Partisan divisions have hurt the American people, and we can no longer afford to allow party politics to take precedence over people.
I expect to disagree with my Republican colleagues on any number of key issues. Collaboration is not capitulation. I will prioritize the concerns of North Alabama citizens above party allegiance.
I will fight against
- Compromising just standards for political gain
- Unreasonable and violent partisan rhetoric, regardless of which side initiates it
