On the Issues

Chris Wooten knows Lexington County is a wonderful place to work, raise a family, and enjoy our fantastic outdoor life. But he also understands our next state representative must address the challenges we face to make things better.

That’s why he will, as your next state representative:

  • Restore trust in government. It’s not as easy as it sounds. But Chris Wooten knows practicing integrity, honesty and openness in his personal life means he’ll do the same in public office. He’ll be open, accessible and accountable to you, the people he serves. And he’ll make sure your voice is always heard in your state government.
  • Make it easier to get where you’re going. Lexington County’s remarkable growth came with a costly price tag. It’s annoying to fight your way through congestion during peak driving hours. Chris Wooten feels your frustration when he’s behind the wheel, too. He knows we must avoid becoming the next Atlanta or Charlotte. As your state representative, Chris Wooten will work with his state officials, local leaders, and community groups to devise better ways to get you where you’re going without all the hassle.
  • Reduce the epidemic of drugs in Lexington County. Our people, especially our children, face the curse of opioid, meth, and prescription drug addiction. As a former law enforcement officer, Chris Wooten knows we’ve pretended for too long the problem doesn’t exist here. But it does. There’s no magic solution to drug abuse. This fight is winnable. We must make sure we have enough men and women in uniform to find, arrest and prosecute drug dealers, as well as funding for effective treatment programs to lead people out of addiction. As your state representative, Chris Wooten will put his experience to work for you in addressing this serious threat.
  • Defend your right to bear firearms. This right is so important, our Founding Fathers enshrined it in the Constitution. Chris Wooten has carried weapons as a Marine and state trooper. He’s a proud member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and will stand guard over your constitutional rights. He also understands gun ownership carries responsibility. We must teach people, especially youngsters, gun safety.
  • Stop tax hikes. People in Lexington County already pay too much in state and local taxes. Chris Wooten knows that every dollar spent on taxes is kept from being spent locally. And that makes it harder for Lexington County’s economy to grow. That’s why those who want to raise your taxes will hear a simple, one-word answer from him: “No!” In fact, Chris Wooten is committed to lowering taxes whenever possible to help local small businesses grow, expand and hire more workers.
  • Protect unborn life. Like you, Chris Wooten believes life begins at conception. That’s why he’s strongly committed to protecting the unborn so that they get the opportunity to experience God’s blessings of, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
