On the Issues

Matt Shaheen is an authentic conservative that is fighting for you and your family in Austin. A man of high moral character and integrity, Matt is a strong fiscal and social conservative who quickly developed respect from his colleagues in the House of Representatives, for his quick study on complex issues and for his ability to debate issues on the floor. Matt Shaheen is a courageous conservative who has never hesitated to challenge the Austin establishment and, when necessary, even his own party on major issues. In his first year in office, Matt was a key ally to other Representatives, helping them pass their conservative legislation.


Issues

Education - Education is the great equalizer for our children. Regardless of race, wealth or geographical location, an education places our children on equal footing and is the bedrock of freedom and the gateway to opportunity. Matt has made education a priority and believes we need to empower parents and support our teachers in order to have an education system that prepares children for tomorrow's workplace.


Issues

Jobs and Economy - As a successful business man, Matt Shaheen knows business creates jobs not government. Matt will continue to end frivolous regulations that kill jobs and hurt the economy. Matt believes in free market capitalism and Texans keeping more of their hard earned income and he will continue to deliver tax relief and work to reduce wasteful government spending that burdens hard working families with higher taxes that kill jobs.


Issues

Illegal Immigration - Government's primary responsibility is to protect life and liberty and Matt is focused on securing our border so we can protect our community and keep us safe. Fighting sanctuary cities is a priority because illegal immigration is taking jobs away from our fellow citizens and increasing crime.


Issues

Safe Neighborhoods - With freedom comes responsibility. As individuals, we must take personal responsibility for our actions in order to live in a safe society. This is a key tenant of our criminal justice system. Matt will continue his work to keep our neighborhoods safe and advocate for smart, strong criminal justice laws that keep dangerous criminals off of our streets.


Issues

Strong Familes - As a devoted husband, father and Deacon at his church, Matt is fighting to protect life and the traditional family. He is intent on giving children in Texas the hope of a better tomorrow and the promise of a safe and secure today. Matt understands and promotes Texas' heritage and has clear vision for our future. His leadership is unwavering in the face of criticism and steadfast when confronted with adversity.


Issues

Liberty - For most of world history, people have been ruled by different types of governments such as emperors, lords or kings and the people received what little freedom they had from the government. The greatness of America is articulated in our Declaration of Independence, when it states that our freedoms come from God, not man, and our Constitution forms a federal government, that is limited, to protect those God given rights. Matt will always celebrate and promote the founding principles of America and our great US Constitution.


Issues

Limited Government - The opportunity to chart one's own course to start a business, chase a dream and build their future is the life blood of Texas and government must promotes policies to unlock individual potential and unleash economic growth, not hinder it. Matt realizes that government cannot be all things to all people. Rather, we as individuals must assist those in need rather than uncaring government bureaucrat that try to solve every problem with money. Matt will always combat radical liberals who use the power of government to attack religious freedom and free speech.


Issues

Protecting the Second Amendment - Our right to bear arms is a sacred right upon which the Government may not infringe. Matt will continue to fight for the right of Texans to protect themselves.


Issues

Infrastructure - An estimated thousand people move to Texas each day because of the vast opportunities we provide, therefore, we must continue to invest in our state's critical infrastructure. As a former County Commissioner, Matt understands how vital continued investments in core government functions such as water and transportation are to maintain our unmatched economic growth. In addition, Matt continues to work on sufficient funding for transportation so that we can rid our state of toll roads.
