My name is William Lamberth and I am running for the House - 44th District. To understand who I am and what I believe in, you have to know what it's like to grow up on a farm. Each day when the sun rises, you know it's a blessing from God. You get up, get dressed, grab a bite to eat, and go to work. As a farmer or small business owner, there is no one watching over your shoulder or driving you to work harder. If you don't do the work, the bills don't get paid.
My parents taught me to take every step with a purpose and from an early age entrusted me with responsibilities far beyond my years. Most of us know what it is like to chase the sun across the sky and always have more left to do at the end of the day when it sets. Yet, when you grow up the way I did, you learn a sense of urgency that today is the only day to do the job because tomorrow will bring new challenges and obstacles to address.
I have applied this same work ethic and dedication as an Assistant District Attorney. For the past 6 years, I have fought for justice one case at a time. I was firm, but fair, with the overriding goal to punish wrongdoing in a way that will ensure it doesn't happen again. I'm proud to say that work has resulted in safer streets and a stronger community.
I believe in low taxes, small government, and traditional family values.
The best place for money earned by a citizen is in his/her own pocket, not a government superfund. That's one of the many reasons I will never support a state income tax. I also believe inheritance taxes only punish prosperity and make it more difficult for family farms to survive.
Small businesses, especially our local farmers, form the backbone of our economy. Government should do everything possible to clear any obstacle in the way of innovation and business ingenuity.
Growing up, my family included not only the people under our roof, but also members of the surrounding community. The teachers and pastors that led me through adolescence formed the fiber of who I am today. We as a community should support BOTH teachers AND children as they progress through the classrooms in our county. The two are intertwined and my prayers are with them regularly.
My roots run deep in the soil of the 44th District. I am proud to call this place home, and I know that working together we can ensure that all of our children will prosper here for generations to come. It is time for a true conservative voice for the 44th District. I am that voice. Take this step with me, join in this effort, and we can accomplish amazing things.
