*A state-wide minimum wage of $12 per hour. Counties and cities may impose a higher figure.
*Legal Marijuana. Marijuana is safer than alcohol and an effective treatment for chronic pain. Law enforcement should focus its limited resources on violent crimes and burglaries.
*Comprehensive Criminal Justice Reform. No jail time for driving without insurance or not paying fines. Compassionate city courts that focus on justice rather than fines. Reduce prison sentences for non-violent offenders.
*Fair taxes. Georgia’s tax system is so regressive, we could reduce taxes for 90% of Georgians without reducing revenues. I want to cut the taxes on houses and cars in half and pay for this by taxing stocks and bonds. I want to double the personal exemption and pay for this by increasing the rate on income over $150,000.
*Higher teacher pay to attract outstanding educators to our schools.
