Where John Stands
Infrastructure – With the unprecedented levels of growth Clarksville is experiencing, it is imperative we elect someone who is willing to fight to expand the state-owned roads that make up the heart of our community. I will work with TDOT and the Local Government to expand and improve the many miles of state-owned roads throughout Clarksville.
Vocational & Technical Education – Giving our children the opportunity to graduate High School with a lifelong skill that enables them to support themselves and their future families should be a central focus of our education system. Partnering with local industry to bring Vocational and Technical Education back into our school systems is of critical importance to me and our community.
Pro-Life – I believe that all life is precious, and I will work to protect and defend the most vulnerable amongst us.
2nd Amendment – In the military, I swore to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and that duty did not end when I took off the uniform. As your next State Representative, I will fight to protect your right to keep and bear arms.
Constitutional Rights - Our US Constitution is a true work of art and is for all people. As stated, I swore an oath to protect and this NEVER ENDS.
"I, John W. Dawson, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962)."
