Justin is AQ rated from the NRA and the TSRA. No lawful gun owner’s rights should be infringed. In fact, he is in favor of lowering the permitting fee to obtain a gun owner's license to $0 to assure a financial burden is not a barrier to those that want to lawfully carry. Justin will always protect our rights and stand in the way of radicals seeking to criminalize responsible gun ownership.
Justin believes that life is a sacred gift from God, and that babies should be protected inside and outside of the womb. Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.” Justin will always stand up for all innocent life.
Justin believes we need joint stress-based training with officers and teachers. This would include medical treatment training for our teachers. Also, we need more school resource officers and mental health counselors in our schools. Justin will work closely with Governor Abbott and his goal to make Texas schools the safest in the nation.
It is no secret that we need to solve our traffic woes. We need an East/West roadway system to help alleviate the choke points in the district. It should not take over an hour for someone to make it to work, or for someone to make it to their kid's football game. To put it simply, we need more roads to keep up with our growing population.
Property taxes are high for everyone in our district. We need solutions to bring down our costs, particularly for the elderly that are being taxed out of their homes. I believe we need to balance our "wants" and our "needs" when it comes to budgeting. The legislature’s first duty is serving the citizens and that starts with preventing burdensome taxes. We need to be more efficient with our use of taxes. This will help lower taxes for everyone.
We must also begin electing our Appraiser. The person appraising our homes, and assessing our property value, must be held accountable.
Justin strongly believes that Texas must continue to address the growing need for mental health services for our young adults. He endorses Governor Abbott’s plan to increase the amount of mental health counselors in schools. Our students are dealing with stressors of an ever-changing world, and by adding more mental health counselors, we can help these students navigate this world.
As a police officer, he has directly counseled people struggling with mental health issues - even those contemplating suicide. Justin knows that our approach to mental health will save countless lives. In many ways, Justin is a last resort for some of our most vulnerable citizens. Whether it be a student struggling with classes, a victim of domestic violence, or someone battling substance abuse, we must provide successful mental health programs that protect Texans.
