Rep. Josh Cockroft
For the last eight years, Josh has been a champion for common sense Oklahoma values in the State Legislature. Josh believes in the words of the Declaration of Independence, that " all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. The order in which these rights are listed is no mistake. Josh understands a culture cannot have prosperity or liberty without life. That is why he is 100% pro life from conception to natural death. Traditional family values are essential to ensuring a strong culture. Defining marriage between one man and one woman, a strong understanding of the 2nd amendment, and the protection of of our constitution, are all parts of Josh's core beliefs.
Josh knows that local control in education, common sense values, and strong families hold the keys to success for all Oklahomans. He has made exceptional schools a priority while rejecting overreach by federal or state governments. He believes that unnecessary entitlements rob individuals of their potential and creates a dependency upon government instead of personal responsibility. He believes the greatest welfare program available is a strong family and a good paying job.
Josh believes in many ways state government has lost its focus, becoming too ineffective, costly and too often aimless in its objective. He continues to seek to right-size government, push for proper funding of vital services, consolidate areas where possible, and protect areas which need to be protected. He believes conservatism is not saying no to government, but saying yes to the right and most effective government. State government should be lean, but able to provide every essential service needed. He has also worked tirelessly to modernize government systems, saving millions of taxpayer dollars, bringing Oklahoma squarely into the 21st Century.
Josh supports a tax structure that encourages investment, attracts new industry, creates jobs and encourages hard work. He has worked hard to eliminate over-regulation and bureaucratic red tape, which stifle prosperity and kill jobs. He has fought for a diverse tax base that supports services Oklahomans need, but isn't too intrusive into our everyday lives.
