Strong schools are the heartbeat of our future. As a graduate of Kingfisher High School in 1993, Mike Sanders believes we must strengthen standards and expect the best from students. Hard-working teachers deserve reasonable wages and should be allowed to maintain discipline in the classroom. Fiscal responsibility is key to education excellence; our kids deserve the best education we can possibly provide.
WISE SPENDING DECISIONS
Just as wise families budget, spend and save according to their means, so must government make prudent financial decisions. As your Representative, Mike Sanders looks for opportunities to streamline government without sacrificing essential services and help save valuable taxpayer dollars by implementing common-sense efficiencies.
LOWER TAXES & LESS REGULATION
The hard-working families of western Oklahoma should be able to keep more of what they earn. Mike believes the Legislature should continue lowering the state income tax, especially for lower income families who already struggle to make ends meet. And for small businesses, which represent the engine of our economy, we must remove burdensome government regulations and other obstacles, including our broken workers compensation and legal systems that impede success.
ROADS AND BRIDGES
Oklahoma’s transportation systems have been neglected for far too long. Maintaining and improving our roads and bridges is a top priority for Mike Sanders. He knows that adequate infrastructure is key to economic development and critical for public safety.
RURAL HEALTH CARE
Health care is an issue that impacts more than just senior citizens. Mike Sanders understands that skyrocketing costs are crippling small businesses and are a burden to working families. He will continue the fight for lawsuit reform, Medicaid reform and for making health insurance premiums tax deductible. Mike also believes that more marketplace competition will drive down the cost of prescription drugs.
