PRIORITIES AND POSITIONS

 

ECONOMIC FREEDOM AND GROWTH

Mindy's top priority is re-opening the economy to get money back into your hands now. 

Deregulation of businesses and a reduction of government interference with personal liberties will lead to greater opportunity for all individuals and a proportionate distribution of personal wealth.

When in office, Mindy will sponsor legislation that bans the state and federal government from denying business owners from operating their business at full capacity solely based on the type of business (i.e., "all theaters must close")

EDUCATION REFORM 

As an educator and mother, Mindy is truly passionate about education reform. She plans to pass legislation that advances equity and access in public schools.

Mindy opposes federally mandated curriculum, such as common core.  She supports IDEA and the use of federal funds to ensure equal educational access for students with disabilities.

Mindy believes that every child has the right to a free and appropriate public education. Parents have the right to use public funds to send their children to any school of their choice. Mindy supports traditional school districts, charter schools, and the voucher system. The best education for children will never be one size fits all. 

ENERGY

Mindy opposes government control of energy pricing, allocation, and production.

Mindy supports a 15 year transition to clean energy, allowing oil and gas companies in Louisiana to develop infrastructure and business plans to support creating and distributing renewable energy. The smartest solution is one that supports both the financial health of Louisiana's economy and the environmental health of Louisiana citizens. 

Mindy also supports strengthening infrastructure to support the use of natural gas, including natural gas ports along the Mississippi River.  

CRIMINAL JUSTICE

Mindy maintains that government force must be limited to the protection of the rights of individuals to life, liberty, and property, and governments must never be permitted to violate these rights.

 

She advocates that the constitutional rights of the criminally accused, including due process, a speedy trial, legal counsel, trial by jury, and the legal presumption of innocence until proven guilty, must be preserved. 

 

When in office, Mindy will sponsor legislation that:

  • Decriminalizes victimless crimes such as drug possession

  • Ends mandatory minimum sentences

  • Abolishes juvenile detention centers and replaces them with a robust system of mandated community supports, counseling, and wraparound services

 

 

SOCIAL JUSTICE

Mindy advocates that all citizens have the right of equitable access to resources and to be free of biases, prejudices, and marginalism by government entities and fellow citizens.

TAXES AND GOVERNMENT SPENDING

Mindy supports a flat tax in conjunction with itemized deductions and credits. Her goal is to cut unnecessary government spending as the primary way to balance the federal budget. She denounces the federal government incurring debt on behalf of the people.

Mindy seeks to significantly reduce federal expenditures by reducing regulatory agencies that are non-essential for the operating the three branches of the federal government and the military.

When in office, Mindy will sponsor legislation that:

  • directs the federal government to sell vacant land and buildings 

  • eliminates federal subsidies for Amtrak

  • eliminate the Overseas Operations Contingency account

Mindy will vote against any measure that frivolously spends taxpayer money. 

GUN LAW

​Mindy believes that all individuals, 18 and over, have the right to purchase, own, or possess any firearm, except felons convicted of violent crimes. She supports the right of all citizens, regardless of age, to purchase, own, or possess a rifle, shotgun, or other firearm typically used for hunting.

Mindy supports the right for all consenting individuals to be lawfully married. She also supports the right for citizens to identify as any gender they choose and to be protected from discrimination that is based on their personal identity.
