*As a veteran, with two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, no one will better advocate for soldiers and veterans than I will.
*As an incentive to recruit veterans to retire in our state, I propose a grant to veterans who retire in Tennessee and start a business.
*The state must work to incentivize businesses to hire veterans and decrease the unemployment rate of veterans.
*I will facilitate a partnership between the office of the Commissioner of Veterans Affairs, Fort Campbell and the Department of Defense to educate local business on hiring veterans.
*Build a coalition between the state, local government, and local businesses to facilitate the development of an exit for our hospital.
*Work to increase state funding of roads in our area (currently Montgomery County is 3rd in TN for petroleum based taxes but is not in the top 10 in receipt of road dollars from the state).
