Personal responsibility. Hard work. Providing for our families. These are the values we grew up with, and the values that Faith wants to bring to the to House of Delegates. This means making sure that those who work hard to contribute to society are rewarded for that work. It means recognizing that individual freedoms can and will do more good for Maryland than all the tax hikes in the world ever can. A vote for Faith is a vote for what our Founding Fathers wanted: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Faith considers not only job creation, but career creation a top priority. Spending taxpayer dollars on infrastructure is fine; however, it cannot be our primary means of job creation as these jobs are temporary. Faith believes the best way to go about this is to introduce and pass business-friendly legislation that will keep jobs from going out of state.
Taxes and Spending
Most of us learned about the value of money as small children. We learned we couldn’t buy a 25 cent ice cream bar if we only had a nickel. We also weren’t allowed to take money from other people every time we wanted a new toy. As adults, we learned to clip coupons, shop clearance racks, and make our dollars stretch as far as they could go. Faith sees no reason why we can’t apply this to our laws: Be responsible with money, don’t buy what we can’t afford, and respect that we Marylanders have the right to keep as much of our hard-earned paychecks as possible. Our policymakers should employ the same strategies that Marylanders would use at home when faced with similar issues.
Expand charter schools so that parents and students can focus on the education that is best for their learning abilities. For example those with strong math abilities should be able to select a charter school that builds on these strengths while developing the whole learning experience.
Our education funding should be geared toward the classroom, quality education and highly qualified teachers not on the growing education bureaucracy that steals the value of education from the classroom.
