1.Economic and Educational Opportunity: It’s time we started expanding opportunity and stopped shrinking the middle class. We need good Tennessee jobs & good wages for workers and good schools & college opportunities for kids regardless of their zip code.2.Fairness & Dignity—People matter. Our seniors who have worked their whole lives should be able to retire in dignity. Working people should be able to take their children to a doctor when they’re sick. As the engine of prosperity, small business owners shouldn’t have to beg for the same treatment given to big corporations. 3.Responsibility & Accountability—It’s time politicians stopped complaining about the government and started running it well. I’m focused on making government more effective, more accessible and open for citizens. That also means holding people and programs accountable and eliminating waste, fraud and abuse where it exists.
