Economy and Jobs

I believe the people of South Mississippi sent me to Congress to change the culture in Washington so that we can get our country and our economy back on track. Americans want a government that lives by its means, promotes a healthy business climate for a flourishing economy, and that works together to get the job done. That is my goal for every vote I take. 

I know the challenges that come with starting and running a small business, and I know what it means to meet a payroll and read a balance sheet. I believe that the federal government should spend more time looking for ways to strengthen small businesses rather than ways they can be regulated or taxed. Small businesses are a critical part of our economy, both locally and at the national level. 

Please know that as your Congressman, I remain dedicated to changing the culture in Washington, and bringing high quality jobs to Mississippi.
