Recent legislation and funding, including CARES Act dollars, have
been announced; however, there is much more work to
be done to find real solutions for
Copiah, Lawrence, Lincoln, and Walthall counties.
Jason believes that government should be run from the citizens up,
not bureaucracy down. He is not in favor of big government, over regulation
or tax increases; however, he is in favor of the people having a strong voice
at the capitol and at the ballot box, and helping families and small businesses
keep more of their hard-earned money in their own pocket where it belongs.
Now, more than ever, accessible,
affordable healthcare, especially for
our most vulnerable residents and
veterans, is crucial. And while
funding for our rural hospitals is
vital for them to
remain operational and provide
essential health services to our
communities, increased pay for
nurses is also vital so that
we can stop losing good healthcare
workers to better paying
jobs in surrounding states.
Quality education for students and
placing teacher salaries, supply
funds, and secure benefits at
the forefront is absolutely essential.
We must ensure adequate funding
to help school districts flourish,
prepare students for success, and
provide teachers with promised pay raises.
Jason's family has 85 years of
combined public school teaching
experience. He will be a strong voice
for education, parents, students, and teachers.

ECONOMY AND JOBS
In Southwest Mississippi, small
businesses are the cornerstones
of our communities and good
jobs are necessary for the
health and well-being of our families.
We need to reopen the economy and
continue to strengthen workforce
development through programs like
ReSkillMS as part of our economic
recovery plan so that we emerge
stronger and more resilient than ever before.
We know that safe roads and bridges are necessary for economic
development, work, and school. Through fiscal responsibility and
reevaluating sources of revenue, I believe we can find the needed
funding for repairs without increasing
taxes. I am committed to working with
municipal and county officials
throughout the district to address
all infrastructure needs,
from roads, bridges, and potholes
to utility and fire services.
High speed internet is no longer a
luxury, it is a necessity due to distance
learning, telemedicine, telecommuting,
and small businesses. Working
closely with electric co-ops
and state agencies
will help secure needed grants to
expand rural broadband in our area.
Jason will always protect the lives of the unborn. He believes in the
sanctity of life and opposes tax-payer dollars funding abortions.
As a life-long supporter of the
and an "A" rating from the NRA,
you can count on Jason to fight to
protect the right of the people to
keep and bear arms, and
support hunters and gun owners.
Jason's education; work experience as an attorney and former
public school teacher; and being a small business owner who is
actively involved throughout our communities, uniquely qualifies
him to move us forward with fair, transparent leadership as we
address the issues of infrastructure, economy, jobs, education,
healthcare, and rural broadband.

YOU THE PEOPLE
