3 Questions
It is clear that the budget must be a top priority for Oklahoma policy makers. Irresponsible budget cuts have hurt some of Oklahoma’s most important services. Because of this, it is imperative that we find responsible revenue sources to fund these services. Oklahoma gives approximately two billion dollars to tax credits and incentives to corporations every year. One of the first things we must do is look at each incentive that we give and see if it is bringing in jobs and revenue for our state. For those credits that are not returning the investment, we must reroute the money to the areas of our state that desperately need it. Beyond looking at tax credits given to corporations, there are many options that we can piece together to ensure we create a responsible budget. When looking at each revenue option, it is vital that we put together a revenue plan that does not burden any one group of people and that we don’t balance the budget on the backs of the most vulnerable.
As the daughter of two educators and a future educator myself, ensuring students have a bright future is a top priority of mine. As schools face budget cuts, they are unable to provide our students the resources they need to succeed such as textbooks. Much like the budget, we must find revenue sources to fully fund our public schools. In addition to raising revenue sources, we must not support ESAs or vouchers to reroute funds from public schools to private schools. While fully supporting a parent’s right to send their child to private school, we must also ensure that our funds stay within the public school system so that every Oklahoma student has the opportunity for a quality education.
Oklahoma has the second highest incarceration rate in the country, indicating a huge need to find solutions to lowering the number of prisoners. One way to reduce the incarceration rate is to adequately fund our core services, including education. Responsibly funding the services of our state is an investment in the future of our criminal justice system. Beyond this, we must provide services to those in prison so that they will have the resources they need when they finish their sentences.

3 Questions
The people of Oklahoma need a more transparent budget process. The legislature should begin working on a budget the first day of the session, updating as new revenue information comes up. Focus of legislation should be on core programs rather than ideological, conservative issues.
Consistent funding is the obvious answer. If the state question 779 is approved, the money generated will not make education whole. What has been provided is a piece meal effort without knowledge of ramifications. Discussions with teachers not just the state superintendent should be held to understand what is happening on the ground floor. Some of the changes may require constitutional amendments.
Oklahoma is moving slowly toward changes in incarceration. Several changes are: 1. community involvement for first time, non-violent offenders 2. reduce use of for-profit prisons 3. drug court and rehabilitation.

We should have rolled back the ill advised tax cut that went into effect on Jan 2016 and should definitely stop the triggered cut for 2018. Less tax breaks and incentives for the Oil and gas industry and look into raising the production tax on the oil and gas industry back to more realistic levels. Say 7% instead of 2% and 1% on low production wells. We should possibly take a look at continued tax breaks for the wind industry as well. Stopping the double deduction on state taxes and federal taxes and look into taxing internet sales better. We cannot continue to reduce taxes and pay for the core services of our state.
We absolutely have to properly fund our PUBLIC education system. Again, cutting taxes on higher incomes does not produce enough revenue to get the job done. We seem to have plenty of money to hand to oil and gas but can’t educate our kids? Perhaps that is because our kids don’t contribute to the campaigns of our elected officials. We hand large corporations $450 Million in tax breaks and have a budget shortfall. Shameful. While I am not a fan of State Question 779 it could be our only hope of producing enough revenue to properly fund the schools if our leaders in the state legislature continue to try to destroy public ed. I am NOT a fan of privatizing our schools with ESA or vouchers. In my opinion we weren’t having any trouble funding public ed until ALEC and the KOCH brothers and Walmart decided they wanted to turn the education of our kids into an entrepreneurial opportunity. I will work with anyone who is willing to fund Public education. I will listen any ideas that are aimed at funding PUBLIC education.
Criminal justice reform has to be a priority. We are locking people up in this state at an alarming rate. Incarcerating individuals for victimless crimes just to keep the private prisons in business is not only damaging families, it’s immoral. I’m a fan of education instead of incarceration. The more people we educate the fewer we will see in jail. I would support lighter sentences or just fines for marijuana possession as I fail to see where the victim is in possessing or smoking marijuana. Perhaps legalization is another option. The private prison industry lobbies congress for stiffer sentences and penalties to insure profits and I find this to be appalling.

As a small business owner I know the importance of making common sense budget decisions that address both immediate needs and provide for business success in the future. With the state facing a $1.3 billion budget deficit we need to take a hard look and thoughtful approach to long-term financial planning that insures sustainable economic growth for Oklahoma. I will work diligently to champion responsible spending and investment of taxpayer dollars by creating a system of transparency and accountability. I will focus on spending priorities and eliminating duplication of services. We need to create a long-term strategic financial plan that includes income and expenses not just one year out but 5 year and 10 years out. This is done in the private sector and I feel needs to be done in government. We are beyond party lines in Oklahoma and need common sense legislation to grow our economy.
Economic development cannot happen if we have an uneducated, unhealthy workforce. As a legislator I will push for long-range strategic budgeting that allows for sustainable funding for education and workforce development. Oklahomans are hardworking people and we need focus on our most important asset. We need to pay our teachers a competitive wage so that we can attract and retain good, quality teachers. It has got to be the first thing we do. Secondly, no two children learn the same way. I believe that we need to allow teachers the freedom to create learning environments that best suit the child. This may require more than one teacher in the classroom. By doing this I believe that children will want to learn, want to come to class and will experience better success thus increasing those who want higher education and becoming productive members of our communities.
I am in favor of smart on crime reform! I have spent the last 10 years of my career as the Executive Director of the Crime Commission/Crime Prevention Network. Other states have reduced their incarceration rates and recidivism rates by providing alternative reforms for lesser criminal offenses. These are more cost effective and put less of a burden on our over populated prisons. This is especially true with females as we incarcerate more than any other state. This needs to be a priority and it is something that I will work hard on as a legislator.

We do not need any more tax cuts. We need to raise income tax on those that make over $100,000/ year / single or over $200,000/ household. Some of the tax credits need to be removed or fazed out sooner. We should consider things like a floating gas tax, that goes up when gas prices are down, and goes away when gas prices are high. Or we could consider a soda tax, that would encourage a healthier life style. Oklahoma needs to take the federal medicaid dollars that have been refused by our current representatives.
I will support investing in our teachers and schools. We need to keep class room size down, pay our teachers a living wage, and make sure that testing is not over done. Teaching and learning should be enjoyable! We need to strive to make sure our low income communities have the tools needed to make school a place where children and their families want them to be; provide meals for those in need, as well as books and supplies.
I support SQ 780. I would also support removing the death penalty, which costs the state more money than life in prison. I do not believe in private prisons. We have a terrible problem in Oklahoma with over crowed and poor prison conditions, which should be addressed in a humane way.

3 Questions
I believe that it is essential that we recognize the need for taxes that are sufficient to meet the service needs of our state. We need to reestablish our tax base to what it was before the drastic tax reductions that were made on the upper income and corporate tax rates. We need to recognize the need to tax our petroleum industry at rates that help, not harm, our economy. Oklahoma accepts federal dollars to provide help to our citizens in times of natural disaster. We must likewise accept federal healthcare dollars to help our working poor maintain their healthcare, keep our rural hospitals open, and provide for the nursing care needs of our citizens. We cannot continue to shortchange our public schools and our public school teachers. We cannot continue to rob the retirement systems of our public servants to help prop up necessary state services. We cannot continue to rip hope out of the grip of our working poor to deny them a living wage and from our mentally ill and foster children
I will encourage the setting of priorities. The number one priority of our state should be the education of our children. Without good and successful public schools and without a trained and educated work force, the state will not be able to attract and maintain businesses. Setting the state budget early in the session should also be a priority. It is imperative that all superintendents, from the state level down to the smallest district, be able to establish their own priorities for the next year before the end of the current year. The lives and careers of their teachers depend upon it. Also directly connected to the setting of priorities is the idea of considering and funding only the most pressing legislative items. I will encourage the cancellation of items we do not need or cannot fund. I will support a moratorium on any extension of charter schools in the state. Since charter schools do not serve all Oklahoma students, they do not serve any legitimate public purpose.
We need to take a hard look and re-evaluate the non-violent crimes that currently draw prison sentences in our state. We need to modify our justice system from one that seems totally focused on vengeance to one focused on rehabilitation. Oklahoma leads the nation in the rate of incarceration of women. Families are ripped apart. Children are often forced into a foster care system which suffers under its own set of legislative funding problems. This is not something to be proud of. When we are spending far more per person to imprison their mothers than we are spending to educate their children, there is something fundamentally wrong. Oklahoma utilizes its poor to provide taxes to our state, and likewise to provide a form of corporate welfare. The very idea of corporate prisons should be revolting! If we don’t have enough prisons to house our inmates, then the solution is not to allow corporations to profit from the problem; the solution is to reevaluate and change our justice system.

Spend much less of the Taxpayer’s money and what little money the Oklahoma State government does spend must be spent more wisely. Allow the Invisible Hand of the Free Market guide the economy, by getting the meddlesome government out of the way.
Create a real education voucher system. Phase out bloated inefficient public schools. The state can provide funding, at the current per student level, directly to the parents through Vouchers and the parents can chose the schools their children will attend. In this way the parents are in control, bad schools will dry up, good schools will flourish and minimum resources are wasted on the bureaucratic overhead.
Lowering the rate of incarceration should not even be a goal. We should strive to incarcerate all criminals in an effort to reduce crime and rehabilitate criminals. That being said, there are laws on the books today that make normal actions of a free people criminal offenses that should not be crimes and must be removed. Specifically, if an adult would like to spend his wages smoking a Marijuana cigarette, Saturday night, in his home, in the attempt to seek his happiness, the State of Oklahoma has not business spending the Taxpayers’ money trying to prevent it. So, I support legislation to decriminalize any adult use of Marijuana.

Our budget problems are not a spending issue and simply cutting core services like public education to the bone is not an acceptable solution. In order to address our budget failure on a long-term basis, Oklahoma simply must have more recurring revenue and stop shoring up the budget with one-time revenue sources that seem politically easy. I would advocate for increasing the cigarette tax, reining in sales tax exemptions and modernizing the tax code to include some services, in addition to closing some tax loopholes and eliminating some overly generous or unnecessary tax incentives. We also need to focus more on diversifying our economy through solid economic development work so that it isn’t so dependent on the oil and gas industry. Once we get past the budget crisis we are facing today, I would definitely advocate for putting back more of our revenue when our economy is stronger so that we have a better cushion when our core industry is going through a downturn.
a. Increase teacher pay to better compete with surround states that are recruiting our teachers in dramatic numbers. Revamp compensation policies to retain our best teachers. b. Workplace conditions – better fund public education so that class sizes are manageable and better structured for student success and so that teachers do not have to fund supplies with their own personal resources. Enact policies that address the challenges that come with a high % of student poverty in our public schools. c. Reform student testing policies; replace the EOI exams with the ACT or SAT. d. Work on programs and policies that enhance our state’s appreciation of the profession to address a source of low morale, which contributes to teachers either moving to another state or leaving the profession entirely. e. Engage the education community more meaningfully in major education policy decisions. Allow them to be part of the solution with a greater stake in the process. I would not support vouchers.
I absolutely support Criminal Justice Reform. There is so much to be improved in our criminal justice system that it should receive a significant state focus. We are currently at 160 to 170% of our rated facility design capacity, yet we are staffing at 60% of our needed capacity. Our inmate-to-staffing ratio is the highest in the country – crisis proportions. Our recidivism rate is unacceptable because we are not addressing what is behind the core issue – mental health and drug abuse. We need to better deal with the front-end problems that lead to incarceration. The Pew Charitable Trusts has worked with many states and conducted credible research on this issue. They advised Oklahoma about their recommendations and offered monetary resources to fund the changes. However, Oklahoma refused the money. We must better deal with the root cause of criminal behavior and be realistic in better establishing legal thresholds for the incarceration of non-violent offenders.

3 Questions
Due to the way that our state government is funded, which includes a significant portion of its funds being derived from the oil and gas industry, we periodically experience lean years and then years of plenty. Those lean and plentiful years coincide and directly correlate with the current price of crude oil and natural gas. Having this source of income for the state allows the citizens of this state to have lower taxes since part of the state’s income is obtained from oil companies that derive their income from out-of-state purchasers of their products. Thus we do not want to eliminate this funding source, but must put into place mechanisms by which we can effectively “smooth out” our state’s income so that we reserve money in the fat years to carry us through the lean years. This is not a new concept – it was successfully used in Egypt thousands of years ago. The secret to making it work is discipline; we must impose strict limits on when and how those “excess funds” can be utilized. We must also finalize a budget earlier in the legislative session so that schools and other government funded agencies have a better idea about funding for the next year.
Article XII, Section XII-1 of the Oklahoma Constitution provides that “The Legislature shall establish and maintain a system of free public schools wherein all the children of the State MAY be educated”. (Emphasis added) Usage of the term “may” indicates that children are not required to be educated in a public school, but merely that they will have that as an option. Also, Section XII-4 of that same Article states that “The Legislature shall provide for the compulsory attendance at some public OR OTHER SCHOOL, UNLESS OTHER MEANS OF EDUCATION ARE PROVIDED, of all children in the State…” (Emphasis added) From these provisions of the Oklahoma Constitution, it is clear that education of the State’s children is not limited to public schools, but may be provided by charter schools, private schools, technical schools, virtual schools or home schools. Each child is unique and has unique educational requirements. Parents are ultimately responsible for the education of their children, and parents have the right to choose the education and educational institution that they feel is in the best interest of their child. When elected, I will work to provide all parents with the resources and freedom to help their children be successful.
The high incarceration rate is a symptom of a much larger problem, and you cannot fix a problem by addressing the symptoms. The bigger problem behind the high incarceration rate is drug addiction. The push to change the law to lower possession of drugs from a felony to a misdemeanor would lower incarceration rates, but it is treating the symptoms and not treating the problem. Tulsa’s district attorney says that such a change in the law would be disastrous for law enforcement. The state’s district attorneys agree, but they do support putting a cap on the term of incarceration for those convicted of drug possession. As the real underlying cause of Oklahoma’s high incarceration rate is drug addiction, we need to address this problem before addiction leads to crimes being committed. That includes early education for our children about drugs as most drug addicts start using drugs when they are in elementary or high school. It also includes tougher laws on pushers and stricter laws relating to the introductory or “beginner” drugs that currently are not well regulated.

I would advocate for the fiscal policy to be audited like any other financial document. The use of others peoples’ money (taxes) needs to be tracked and accounted. There is a reason in business there are standard accounting principles, government should be held to the same standards. Any discrepancies should require investigation and possible prosecution.
I will support any legislative proposal that will strengthen our public school system for the betterment of our children. But I do not support vouchers or re-appropriation of funds from the schools. It is the responsibility of our legislators to provide a budget that works best for its constituents, this includes educating the children of our state.
I have already endorsed state question 780 and 781, I believe these measures are a step in the right direction in combating the high incarceration rate in Oklahoma. Other state questions that would help lower the incarceration rate would be SQ 778 and 788, which would legalize medical marijuana and license to grow, respectively.

Oklahoma must increase its revenue sources. In order to this, we must look at all tax credits and incentives and determine which ones are actually productive for Oklahoma. We must look at future tax cuts and postpone them until we have a revenue stream that will meet our state’s needs in education, roads, social services, prisons and other areas vital to the people of Oklahoma. In times of high priced oil, we must put money in the rainy day fund.
I will support teacher pay raises to meet the regional average or exceed it. I will support additional funding to insure that we hire more teachers and reduce classroom sizes especially in the Pre- K to 3rd grade classes. Additionally, I would support proposals that would make Oklahoma’s per pupil expenditures at or above the regional average. I would also like to see funding for quality pre-K programs in all Oklahoma schools which research has shown greatly enhances a student’s chance for academic success.
Oklahoma must lower its incarceration rate as we have one of the highest rates in the nation. We are number 1 in the number of women we send to prison. I will support policies that focus on rehabilitation of drug and alcohol offenders. Additionally, we must look at the penal code and determine what offenders can be punished in other ways that do not involve prison time for minor offenses. We need to improve the educational efforts in prisons and include job skills that will help prevent recidivism. We need to look at community service programs instead of incarceration for some drug and alcohol offenses.
