What personal qualities or experiences do you think will best serve you in your role as a state legislator?
Unlike many people in our current state legislature, I know how hard it is to live and be poor and have nothing. I was raise not with a silver spoon in my mouth but A wood spoon. I know how hard it is each and every day, while others was enjoying time with your friends and family I was up early every morning drop in tobacco sticks, seven produce on side of the road to buy My school clothes. So I know how hard life can be for minute Tennesseans still in the 21st-century here in 2016. Unlike other legislatures that thinks of the party in which they are a member of and how fat their Wallets are. I stand for the people because I am one of the people.

ESSAY QUESTION 5:
What bill passed in the last General Assembly that you would have voted against and why, or what bill did not pass in the last General Assembly that you wish had passed and why?
There is several bills in which I would've voted against in this last journal assembly and I will state them now.
Let's start off with his transgender bathroom bill which is uncalled for. People has the right to choose what restroom that they identify with two peacefully go in and do their personal business without any interference at all. This also includes our students and our in our schools. They also have a right to privacy in which they feel which suits them to do their business and privacy without interference.
Second bill in which I would voted no on would be the religious text bill or the Bible bill. Unless we plan on making every religion and faith are official religion of Tennessee and or a book then no book will ever be a state book in my view. It's called separation of church and state, one religion show never rein over another.
The next bill which I want to talk about that I would vote no on would be the voucher bill. Our public dollars for public schools should and always remain public. Take up money from our public schools define private institution is ridiculous and not warranted. I feel if I private institution wants to move into Tennessee then if they deem fit, they should be willing and able to afford opening the school of themselves. Public money is for public schools and public education.
Continue, the next topic online would be the Insure Tennessee healthcare. Because our current legislature is so close minded and brainwashed, they have jeopardized over 280,000+ Tennesseans lives and made multiple hospitals Close up, loss of jobs, jeopardize peoples health and well-being I'll because they did not want to think and vote for insure Tennessee.
And one of the last things that I would voted no on would be the DUI bills presented by representative William Lamberth a district 44 Tennessee state house. The two bills in which he got approved one of which would raise the point O2 to .08 for minors from 18 to 20 under the legal limit, and raise it a .08 adults statue 21 and above this jeopardized $60 million for our state. This money would've went to roadways and transportation infrastructure. These laws goes against a federal mandate .
