CORE AREAS: JOBS, EDUCATION, TRANSPORTATION
Dave's vision for a prosperous future for Oklahoma revolves around three primary areas: jobs, education, and transportation.
Oklahoma has abundant low-cost energy, water, and good, hard-working people. Those are great building blocks to future prosperity. But Dave believes that Oklahoma's bright future must be driven by an ever-increasing job market, and that the state government can and should be instrumental in that effort. Retaining and creating jobs, and helping find work for those who want it are high on Dave's priority list.
Quality education is equally important. All citizens should have equal access to education. That involves our school systems and vocational training, as both effectively strengthen the workforce and make Oklahoma an attractive location for corporations, businesses, and entrepreneurs. Jobs and education go hand in hand.
The third piece of Dave's platform is transportation. Every family, every business, and every tourist in our state should be provided safe and reliable roads. Maintaining a superior transportation infrastructure--good roads, bridges, and highways--is vital to commerce and illustrates a thriving and successful economy.
