The American Dream begins with an opportunity for all Americans to receive the best education possible. Our children are America’s future, and it is essential that teachers are provided with every possible resource to educate our children. As the Chairman of the St. Johns County School Board, Bev Slough is the candidate who best understands the multitude of issues affecting our education system.
Protecting Second Amendment Rights
The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right and should never be infringed upon. As a member of the National Rifle Association, Bev Slough will defend our Second Amendment rights.
Reducing Debt and Balancing our Budget
America’s ever-rising debt is not sustainable. We cannot continue to borrow over $1 trillion a year with no end in sight. The U.S. fiscal woes present the most predictable disaster our nation has ever known. We have a moral obligation to reduce spending and balance our budget. On the St. Johns County School Board, Bev Slough has balanced a $500 million budget for ten years, reducing and prioritizing spending.
It is imperative that we keep our tax burden as low as possible. Too many Americans are struggling to provide for their families. We must reduce the size and scope of government, decreasing burdensome regulation and taxation. America needs serious tax reform, eliminating loopholes and making taxes flatter and fairer for all Americans.
Creating New Jobs
Businesses and citizens alike cannot prosper with looming tax hikes, burdensome regulations, and economic uncertainty. America is in danger of losing its status as a job creator and an innovation hub. We cannot continue to allow our government to drive American businesses overseas. Our corporate tax rate, the highest in the world, threatens our ability to be competitive in a global marketplace. Bev will work to reduce the burdens placed on America’s economic future by lowering taxes and reducing unnecessary regulations.
America faces serious threats both domestic and abroad. Our military personnel and law enforcement officers must have the equipment and resources necessary to fulfill their duties. Bev will fight to secure our borders and will embrace strong national security policies that protect America and our interests.
