FIGHTING FOR QUALITY EDUCATION:
Rep. Dunahoo is married to a public school teacher, Elaine Dunahoo who has taught in the Hall County school system for 25 years, and is committed to maximizing local control of education. An opponent of excessive standardized testing, Dunahoo believes in the basics of a quality education and training a skilled workforce to enhance Georgia’s ability to attract new businesses and jobs. Rep. Dunahoo was honored to support the state budget that increased education funding and teacher salaries by more than $500M since his first year in the Legislature. A college education should be attainable by all and there are scholarships, work programs, and the Hope in place for this. However, the government provides 13 years of free education and college degrees cannot be “free”; nothing worth real value is free. Someone must pay for it, whether it is education or freedom itself. Free tuition is already available in Georgia colleges and technical schools for students who EARN it.
STOPPING AN INTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT:
Rep. Dunahoo believes in individual liberties bestowed upon us by our Creator. A strict constitutionalist, Dunahoo staunchly opposes any violation of our Constitutional rights including the Right to Bear Arms. Unlike his liberal opponent, Emory is endorsed by the NRA and has an A rating. Henry David Thoreau said it best when he said, “That government is best that governs the least.”
