Protect the Nashville Way!
"No one likes politicians who divide us and turn neighbors against each other. That's not how I was raised growing up in Nashville. It's not the Nashville Way." -Michelle Foreman

OUR CHILDREN should never be left in failing schools. Every Tennessee student should have access to a high-quality education in order to reach their full potential, become self-sufficient, and give back to their community.
As a mother who homeschooled my daughter during the Covid-19 pandemic, I learned first-hand the need for parental involvement, excellent teachers, and a curriculum that provides a quality education for our children. We must support parents in their desire to prioritize the needs of their children and become more active in their children’s education.
At no other time in modern history have our children faced more obstacles to learning core subjects like English, literacy, and math. Furthermore, we have witnessed the diminished value of Americanism, leadership, and college and/or career readiness. Let’s focus our efforts on supporting our teachers and giving them greater flexibility and resources to help ensure our children can excel at their grade level and compete in future career markets.
OUR PAYCHECKS should not be wasted on poorly run government programs. We should keep more of our hard-earned dollars in our own pockets. Hard-working Americans are the backbone of our country and conservative principles make Tennessee the premier place people want to start, grow, and relocate their businesses.
To continue to preserve Tennessee’s advantages we will:
- Remain a low tax and sensible regulation state
- Encourage business development in circumstances where the economy growth works for our state’s citizens
- Create a well-thought-out infrastructure which will further encourage economic development
- Encourage communication and cooperation between our state and local officials in order to find consensus on how to best manage our infrastructure needs. Our roads, railways, bridges, water, and waste management systems must be ready to handle our growth.
- We need strong representatives with a proven track record who will keep unreasonable policies, intrusive mandates, and restrictive regulations out of Tennessee. Michelle Foreman is the only candidate with a proven track record running in the State House District 59 race.
Tennessee is a leader in quality healthcare, but we need to address the lack of affordable insurance, cost transparency, greater freedom for patients, and real solutions to protect our most vulnerable.
Tennesseans should have:
- Access to quality insurance at an affordable price.
- Access to the latest life-saving drugs at a reasonable price.
- The freedom to see the doctor of our choice, conveniently and affordably.
- Transparency in the cost of care, upfront, before we pay for it.
- The unimpeded choice to try experimental treatments.
- Access to prevention, wellness, and early intervention.
- Safety nets that protect the vulnerable.
- Accountability and effective penalties for fraud and waste.
Addiction and substance abuse are both medical and psychological problems. We need to promote access to, and make full use of, our health systems and drug courts when and where appropriate.
LEADERSHIP IN DAVIDSON COUNTY
OUR GOVERNMENT should be and can be smaller, smarter, efficient, and more effective.
Under Republican leadership, Tennessee has a proud tradition of being a fiscally conservative state. The Republican administration works hard to ensure that our state will continue to be well-managed with the lowest possible tax burden.
Republicans will continue to build reserves, cut taxes, and eliminate waste and inefficiency from state government.
We need to empower local police to develop strong community relationships and harness high-visibility, low-arrest tactics to create an environment that deters serious crime from taking root.
We must be creative in our response to crime in our neighborhoods. Real progress begins when a wide range of agencies and institutions work together to restore public order. Environmental design, maintenance, private security, and even hiring the homeless to clean the streets are approaches that have proven successful in reducing disorder and reclaiming our public spaces. In addition, our judiciary branch must be given the support it needs to handle cases swiftly to make certain victims see justice.
