|Info||fought for accountability, transparency, and better service to state government. He’s proposed legislation to cut taxes, create jobs, and curb wasteful spending. And he has proposed and passed legislation to increase innovation in education; audit state government; and eliminate duplicative government agencies. |
Now, he’s ready to take that approach to Congress.
Rex is tired of Washington constantly putting the needs of Wall Street before Main Street, and he believes we can turn around this economy if we roll up our sleeves, get to work, and stop wasteful spending.
While he’s been honored with legislative achievement awards for his efforts in the State House, Rex is most proud of the fact that he has always stayed true to the very reasons he first got involved – his faith, family, and community.
