If elected, Byram said she would work to make the legislative process more transparent. “I believe that our State legislative session needs to be made longer so that there is more time to consider legislation and especially more time between it’s placement on the calendar and the vote so that voters can weigh in on the legislation,” Byram said. Byram said she is also passionate about issues such as education, the environment, and health care in addition to legislative reform.

He is passionate about our local economy especially in agriculture and the small business community. If Harding is elected to the position, he said he has three areas he would fight for. “So I have three priorities, number one I’m pro-life and I want to support all pro-life legislation that I can and number two I’m a strong support of our second amendment and our constitutional right as a whole and third would be vocational training and work force development, I think that’s an area we can bring a strong force to,” Harding said.
