Jeff Williams, as an elected official, has cut his portion of the budget every year he was in office. He has proven himself to be a fiscal conservative at the city, county and state level. He has successfully worked to cut millions of dollars from the state budget while ensuring the priorities of the people of the state are properly funded
Jeff Williams has successfully worked to lower the tax burden on Arkansas families, cutting the tax burden on the people by more than $150 million. This encourages job creation, investment, and economic development. He has also fought to make government more efficient. He will work to continue to reduce the state income and sales taxes to the lowest level possible.
The only thing that prevents the free market from working the way that it should is our government. The free market, on its own, will grow our economy, create jobs, and improve the lives of all Arkansans. With the eliminate of the state corporate income tax, small business franchise and other business fees, as well as the elimination of over-burdening regulations Arkansas’ economy will grow to record levels. This has allowed Arkansas to gain more than 60,000 jobs.
Education is crucial for the betterment of all people and thus is one of the most important issues for our state. Having said that the most effective and efficient control of any issue is when it’s closest to the people therefore I support local control of education in Arkansas. Jeff Williams believes that parents know what is best for their children better than the government does. As State Representative Jeff Williams has fought successfully to ensure everyone has access to affordable educational choices whether its in higher education or career and technical fields. He also worked to increase funding to pre-K, K-12, and higher education without increasing the tax burden on the people of our state.
Northwest Arkansas as a whole, and the 89th District in particular, has seen tremendous growth for many years but we have not received our fair share of our infrastructure dollars from our state government. We have watched as our population and economy have grown exponentially and we have struggled to keep good infrastructure under that growth. Jeff Williams as successfully advocated and secured additional funding for infrastructure and will fight to make sure that the money follows the growing population and economy and will make sure we get our fair share.
THE 2ND AMENDMENT
Jeff Williams is a strong advocate for our 2nd amendment right to bear arms and he will oppose any law that tries to restrict that Constitutional given right.
As a retired Army combat veteran Jeff Williams knows first-hand the sacrifices of our veterans and their families and will guarantee you that he will be point man in the fight for the support that our veterans have earned. As State Representative he fought for and was successful in ensuring access to quality health care and to make military retirement pay tax free in the State of Arkansas.
SANCTITY OF LIFE
Jeff Williams is 100% pro-life. Life begins at conception and all the rights and protections under the law should be extended to all people, even in the uterus. As a State Representative I supported efforts to protect life and will continue to do so.
